At a White House press briefing March 8, President Obama made this statement about Ghana: “There is sometimes a tendency to focus on the challenges that exist in Africa, and rightfully so. But I think it is important to also focus on the good news that’s coming out of Africa, and Ghana continues to be a good news story” Sitting to the right of Obama, Ghana’s President John Atta Mills could be seen visibly smiling and raising his eyes to the comments. Not surprising for Mills, as Ghana has remained stable and prosperous under his leadership for the last three years. Mills is facing re-election in the 2012 Ghanaian presidential race scheduled for December 12, with a run off on December 28, if necessary.
