President John Mahama has left Accra for Guinea Conakry to attend the inauguration of President Alpha Conde for a second term in office.
The West African country has had a long-standing friendship with Ghana since the days of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah and Guinea’s Ahamed Sekou Toure.
To further cement the relationship, President Mahama in 2014 hosted President Conde on a State visit to Ghana.
Accompanying the President to Conakry are the National Chairman of the Convention Peoples Party (CPP) and the Chairperson of the Council of State, Mrs Cecilia Johnson.
While in Conakry, President Mahama will visit the widow of the late Guinean leader, Ahmed Sekou Toure, and also visit the residence of the late Dr. Kwame Nkrumah while he was in exile in Guinea.
President Mahama will return home tonight.
