Addressing the media, Mr Blair said: “It’s a pleasure to be back in Ghana. I’m delighted to come back with you as President of Ghana. I congratulate you not just on your election but for your vision for Ghana. I think this is a very important moment for the country.

"You come at a time of great expectation, you have assumed this great responsibility of office and as is very apparent when anyone spends time with you, they realise that they are with someone who has the interest of the country in his heart and the right spirit with which to approach the challenges.”

He further promised that he will assist Ghana to achieve its goals.

“I know the challenges are formidable and what we were discussing is trying to use my experience in my time in office to do what I can to help countries in their process of change for development. Our initiative is in eight different countries in Africa. Today, we just focus on helping countries to deliver their priorities to their people. We do it in a nonpartisan, political way. We do it because if the countries can develop and their people prosper, I think this is not just good for Ghana but good for the region, good for Africa, and good for the world,” he noted.
