He noted that, “I am proud of my country Ghana, it is part of Africa’s success story, we have not looked back since independence. Ghana has a fiercely independent media and I joke among my colleagues that in Ghana, I have over 27 million presidents each thinking that they know my job more than myself."

He added, "Every morning on radio, you have people calling in and showing me how to run the country. In December, Ghana has yet another election and we will prove to the world yet again that we are a world class democracy.”

Meanwhile, President Mahama called on the United States of America to completely end its trade embargo on Cuba.

He also commended the two nations for warning up to each other while calling for steps to remove the last "vestiges" of the cold war.

"I wish to commend the United States and Cuba for the progress made in thawing relations between the two neighbours. We've all been watching with excitement the removal of the some of the last vestiges of the cold war with the re-opening of embassies in the two capitals," he said.
