“I look forward to continuing our excellent co-operation on defence, drugs, crime, and national security, and to working together on challenges such as tackling corruption. Alongside our ongoing support to Ghana in areas such as governance, poverty reduction, education and health, I hope that we can deepen our economic co-operation,” the wired message from 10 Downing Street in part read.
