The president's message read:

Earlier this month I delivered a speech at the University of South Carolina Center on Public Diplomacy. I made a presentation of our “Made in Ghana” project, launched in 2014, and I'm happy to tell you that everybody was extremely interested. Also, I had the pleasure to taste Ghana's cocoa products sold in Los Angeles. Take a look and be proud of yourselves! ‪#‎MadeinGhana‬.
