Museveni Congratulates US President-Elect Joe Biden, Sets Terms For Relations

Uganda’s President Yoweri T. K. Museveni has joined other world leaders to congratulate President-Elect of the USA, Joseph Biden and asked him to maintain the African Growth And Opportunity Act (AGOA).

Below is Museveni’s congratulatory message to Biden;

His Excellency Joseph Biden,

President-Elect of the USA. Congratulations and greetings from the People of Uganda.  The USA, with its big black population of 47.4 million people, as well as a large Christian population that are linked with us by faith, with deep thinking, could easily be a natural ally of Uganda and Africa. 

The previous American Presidents have already started on positively using these linkages by putting in place the African Growth And Opportunity Act (AGOA) – a law that,  since 18th May 2000, has been giving 6,500 types of African goods, quota free, tax- free access to the USA market. We salute this policy and hope that President Biden will maintain it.

We, therefore, congratulate the American People on exercising their right by, massively,  voting for the candidates of their choice: President Trump and Vice- President  Biden. We congratulate H.E. Biden for winning both the Popular vote and the Electoral College. 

Signed:

Yoweri T. K. Museveni

President of Uganda
