We are delighted that Zambia is the first country that His Excellency the Ghanaian President, Mr. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is visiting in Southern Africa since his election. It is not a coincidence, it's because we share a common history.

Our common history is intertwined in the shared ideals and values by our Founding Fathers Dr. Kwame Nkrumah and Dr. Kenneth Kaunda who also pioneered the formation of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) which is now the African Union.

I am confident that during the tenure of President Nana Akufo-Addo and my tenure, we will speak the same language both in the Commonwealth and United Nations for the benefit of the African Continent.

I wish to reaffirm Zambia’s commitment to enhancing bilateral relations with #Ghana. If bilaterally, we can not collaborate, it would be difficult for us to cooperate at multilateral level.

God Bless #Zambia,
God Bless #Ghana,
God Bless #Africa.

The First Lady and I welcomed His Excellency Ghanaian President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, his wife Mrs. Rebecca Akufo-Addo and their delegation to Zambia.

It is my believe that this visit is a clear demonstration of the existing cooperation between #Zambia and #Ghana focused on bringing mutual benefits to our people.

My Government continues to work with other Governments to bring economic development and better the welfare of every citizen.

I thank you.

I was delighted to lead the ground-breaking ceremony for the new #Copperbelt International #Airport. This event was no doubt a milestone for our country’s development.

What we witnessed yesterday is a fulfilment of the Patrotic Front’s commitment to infrastructure development as one of the key priorities and strategy for accelerating our country’s socio- economic development.

Yesterday's ground breaking ceremony was a clear testimony of the #PF Government’s resolve to better the living standards of our people.

You may wish to know that my Government has prioritised the expansion and modernisation of transport infrastructure because it is critically essential for sustained growth and socio-economic transformation.

In our 2011 and 2016 campaign #manifestos, we promised jobs through a sustained revival of the copperbelt. Here we are doing just that. We are serious about development and that is what we are focussed on. #Zambia is on the move and therefore we shall waste no time on meaningless politicking from some quarters.

Let me convey much appreciation to the Government of the People’s Republic of China, our all-weather friends, for the concessional loan they have provided to finance this important project.

I thank you and God Bless you all.

As the celebration of Eid-ul-Fitr ends in the evening of today, I extend my warmest wishes to the Muslim community in Zambia and around the world. This important time when Muslims mark the end of Ramadan must be a time to reflect spiritually, build communally, and aid those less privileged in our society. While Eid marks the end of Ramadan, it marks a new beginning for everyone. This is also a reason to celebrate and express gratitude on this holiday.

For millions of Muslims, the morning of Eid is marked with the call to prayer echoing through cities and towns across the globe. For Muslims in Zambia, this is an important event as it cements our nation’s endeavour to promote inter-religious dialogue and co-existence.

Zambia, as a Christian Nation, remains a unique country where different religions have learnt to live at peace with one another while contributing to the common good of our communities.

Zambians of all faiths and beliefs must stand together to protect our peace, rule of law, democracy and strengthen our country. In this regard, religion must add to those national aspirations that pull us together rather than those that seek to divide us. We in the Patriotic Front Party know the impeccable position of religion in the national scheme of things. Spiritual leaders help us heal the nation when it is ill. I can therefore urge our faith leaders to do more to promote national unity.

Eid Mubarak!
