President Nana Akufo-Addo and his wife, First Lady Rebecca Akufo-Addo on Sunday, 25th February 2024, were in Windhoek to attend the funeral of the late President of Namibia, Hage Geingob.

“Freedom fighter, politician, educationist, public servant, two-time Prime Minister, third President of Namibia, Hage Geingob, was not only a respected leader, but also a dedicated servant of his people,” Nana Akufo-Addo said in memory of the late President.

According to Nana Akufo-Addo President Geingob’s vision, commitment, and tireless efforts to advance the well-being of Namibians have left an indelible mark on the nation's history.

The Ghanaian leader indicated that President Geingob’s leadership, characterised by wisdom and compassion, will be remembered not only within the borders of Namibia, but also across the African continent.

“His legacy will endure as a beacon of inspiration for future generations, and the impact of his contributions to the progress and development of Namibia will be felt for years to come,” he added.

As Namibia mourns the loss of their leader, Nana Akufo-Addo hoped that the spirit of unity and resilience that has defined President Geingob's leadership guide Namibia through this difficult time, and that his successor will continue with the excellent relations that Namibia has built with Ghana, and, indeed, with the rest of the world.
