President Akufo-Addo was accompanied by the Minister for Foreign Affairs, Shirley Ayorkor Botchway and officials of the Presidency and the Foreign Ministry.

The President will return to Ghana on Tuesday and, in his absence, the Vice President, Alhaji Dr MahamuduBawumia, shall, in accordance with Article 60(8) of the Constitution, act in his stead.

In a related development, a group of Togolese nationals in Ghana calling itself DFDwants ECOWAS to stop Togolese President Faure Gnassingbe from contesting in the next election.

Speaking at a news conference in Accra Sunday, Advisor of the Group, Ridwan Seidu, expressed the group’s disappointment over ECOWAS’ inability to intervene in the political crisis in Togo. 

DFD wants ECOWAS to step in and end the Gnassinge dynasty.
