Nana Akufo-Addo, on his arrival, was made an honorary citizen of Abuja by Muhammad Musa Bello, the Minister of the Federal Capital of Abuja, and was handed a symbolic key to the city.
This is the second visit paid to the Nigerian President by a foreign Head of State, following his return from London after his 3-month medical leave.
Addressing a press conference after the visit, President Akufo-Addo noted that “all of us have been very anxious about his (President Buhari) well-being, and it was very good news to hear that he had returned. We are Africans, and it meant that I had to come and see things for myself.”
He added: “I am very delighted to see that he has come back, and is very vigorous, and, as always, very engaged in the issues of the day. We had a good half an hour together; reviewing matters, both in Ghana and Nigeria, as well as matters to do with what is going on in the ECOWAS community.”
The two leaders also talked about how the ties of friendship that already exist between the two countries could be strengthened in the year ahead.
Other discussions were on the rapid expansion and growth of their respective economies, and the fight against terrorism on the continent and in the world.
