Prince Charles, Wife Arrive In Nigeria

"We have a shared responsibility to ensure that the abject horror of slavery is never forgotten, that we abhor the existence of modern slavery".

He added that the United Kingdom and the rest of the World must ensure that slave trade does not re-occur in any form in the human history.

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall arrived in Accra on Friday to begin a five-day visit that will seek to improve bilateral ties between Britain and Ghana.

The Prince of Wales and his wife, Princess Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall are expected in Nigeria from November 6 to November 8 in a high profile visit during which the royals would also have audience with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa.

Built in 1661, the castle was a principal holding cell for enslaved Africans during the trans-Atlantic slave trade.

Greeting the British Monarch with a mammoth durbar of chiefs and people of Asanteman during the Akwasidae festival, which also saw the Asantehene sitting in state, Otumfuo appealed to the United Kingdom (UK) to actively play roles to help reenergize Ghana's economy.

They arrived to a welcome ceremony at Jubilee House where they met President of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the First Lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo.

In Gambia, the Prince congratulated the West African nation on recently returning to the 53-member Commonwealth states of mostly former British territories.
