"Dear Senator Obama,

RE: Congratulatory message sent to Mr. Barack Obama,
President-Elect of the United States of America by Nana Addo Dankwa
Akufo-Addo, MP and Presidential Candidate of the New Patriotic Party
(NPP) of Ghana.

This morning Americans made history by electing you as the 44th
President of the United States of America. Your election symbolizes
how far America has come in building a more perfect and inclusive
union. Indeed, it is a triumph for democracy.

As an African-American, your election has inspired millions around
the world about how hard work and tenacity can achieve unimaginable
results, regardless of one's origin.

I hope that your Presidency will renew the world and bring people
closer together.

I look forward to a healthy, closer relationship between our
countries under your leadership for the mutual benefit of our
people.

May God bless you,
May God bless America,
May God bless Ghana.

Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, MP
(Presidential Candidate, The New Patriotic Party (NPP), Ghana.)


3. Text of letter from Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings Dr.(Mrs):

"Congratulatory Letter"

I write to congratulate President Obama, the Democrats, and all the
American people for this successful moment and historic election.

We share in your joy today and we join in the celebration of this
victory with you and the whole of the United States of America.

This victory has demonstrated that no person anywhere in the world
should feel inadequate to dream of wanting to change the world for a
better place.

We pray that this historic wave of change that has come at a time
when we are confronted with immense challenges the whole world over,
will serve its purpose and lighten up the hopes of all for a better
tomorrow.

On this day, we share with all Americans, this dream unfolding
before our eyes.

On behalf of my Organization, the women and children that I work
with, I wish to say congratulations once again and we wish the
President-elect all the best.

My husband President Rawlings is out of town and will send his word
when he gets back.

My warmest regards.

Yours Sincerely,

//s//

Nana Konadu Agyeman-Rawlings Dr.(Mrs.)
