Ghana’s President, Nana Akufo-Addo has paid a courtesy call on the Acting President of Nigeria, Professor Yemi Osinbajo.
President Akufo-Addo is believed to have been on a private visit to the oil-producing nation and took the chance to hold talks with the country’s acting President.
Prof. Osinbajo has been the stand-in president of Nigeria for some time now, with substantive President Muhammadu Buhari yet to fully recover from an illness.
The two presidents engaged in a closed-door meeting at the Aguda House, Presidential Villa, the seat of the Nigerian government in Abuja.
Details of the meeting between the pair have not yet been made public, but reports suggest it was to strengthen bilateral ties between the two West African countries.
President Akufo-Addo was accompanied by some ministers, including his Executive Secretary Nana Asante Bediatuo, National Security Minister, Albert Kan-Dapaah and Foreign Affairs Minister Shirley Ayorkor Botchway.
This represents the second time the Ghana president has visited Nigeria, having already held talks with President Buhari last December.
