Beginning from the Western region where he will be the guest of honour at durbar to be organized by the Chiefs and people of Bibiani, President Akufo-Addo will then depart to Sefwi Wiawso where he is expected to pay a courtesy call on the Omanhene and people of the Traditional Area.

Hearing the Director of Communication at the Presidency, Eugene Arhin on Okay FM’s ‘Ade Akye Abia’ Morning Show on the President’s six-day tour, Koku Anyidoho wondered when President Akufo-Addo came back from his trip abroad.
“Is Papa [referring Akufo-Addo] in Ghana? When because I don’t know the time he came back from his trip to Ivory Coast to watch a football match and then moved to Nigeria to conduct orchestral at a seminar?” he sarcastically quizzed.
“I didn’t know he [Akufo-Addo] is in town because he does not live here with us, but we thank God that he has finally come back home to us, he is welcome to Ghana,” he added.
