The princess also shared an interesting news with Akufo-Addo to the effect that the UK was interested in helping to improve access to education for Ghanaian children. Princess Ann also presented the president with a gift she brought from the UK.
as part of her visit, the princess will meet a number of dignitaries, including the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, and former President JA Kufuor. She will also undertake a wide-ranging programme that builds on her previous visits in 1998 and 2011, with a focus on empowering women who act as role models for others, exploring the importance of support for girls, female education and entrepreneurs in delivering Ghana’s future.
