The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, will, in the month of May, pay official working visits to the countries of the ECOWAS region.

The visits will afford President Akufo-Addo the opportunity to introduce himself, as the new Ghanaian leader, formally to the governments and peoples of our neighbouring countries, explore and deepen our bilateral relations with them, and reiterate Ghana’s full commitment to the ECOWAS project.  

President Akufo-Addo, on Tuesday, 2nd May, 2017, left Ghana to begin the first phase of this tour. It will take him to our immediate neighbours, i.e:

·Togo: 2nd – 4th May, 2017

·Burkina Faso: 4th – 5th May, 2017

·Cote d’Ivoire: 5th – 7th May, 2017

The President will, in the remaining days of the month, visit the other 7 countries, with the 2nd phase taking him to Nigeria, Senegal, Guinea, Benin, Cape Verde, and, then, finally to Liberia and Sierra Leone.   

The President will be accompanied by the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Hon. Shirley Ayorkor Botchway MP, and officials of the Presidency and Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

President Akufo-Addo will return to Ghana from the first phase of his tour on Sunday, 7th May, 2017. In his absence, the Vice President, Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, shall, in accordance with Article 60(8) of the Constitution, act in his stead.
