Ghana Mourns Baroness Margaret Thatcher
President John Dramani Mahama has extended Ghana’s heartfelt condolences to the United Kingdom (UK) and bereaved family of the late Baroness Margaret Thatcher, the former British Prime Minister.
A statement signed by Mr Mahama Ayariga, the Minister of Information and Media Relations and copied to the Ghana News Agency in Accra on Thursday said the country joins the international community to mourn the former British Prime Minister.
“Ghana considers late Thatcher as one of the greatest British Prime Minister of the 20th Century. The UK has lost a remarkable and iconic leader whose steely courage and singleness of purpose will always be remembered.
“Her strong believe in individual liberties and the market reforms she introduced resulted in a more dynamic and robust British economy,” the statement stated.
It said notwithstanding the economic challenges of the 1980s, the government of Ghana recalls with appreciation the continuity of British support during Lady Thatcher’s premiership.
The former British Prime Minister died on Monday April 8 at the age of 87.
