“Your reaction accepting the decision of the court notwithstanding the fact that you don’t fully agree with it, I think was admirable and appreciated even beyond Africa as a sign of true leadership” he said.

Meanwhile, Nana Akufo Addo assured the Former South African leader of his party’s preparedness to play an active role in ensuing electoral reforms.
