Prince Charles condemns slavery, climate change in Africa

Prince Charles condemns slavery, climate change in Africa

Prince Charles thought that though numerous instances of the impact of climate abound, such as rising oceans, hurricanes, heat waves, floods and cyclones, the Commonwealth of Nations could still join hands and share best practices to arrest the situation.

The Atlantic slave trade or transatlantic slave trade involved the transportation by slave traders of enslaved African people, mainly to the Americas.

British traders were among the largest participants in the Atlantic slave trade in which up to 12 million Africans were estimated to have been sold into slavery.

In his proposal of toast at a state dinner at the Jubilee House, in honour of their Royal Highnesses, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, on the occasion of their visit to the Republic of Ghana, President Akufo-Addo said, "At the moment, Britain is going through hard moments in trying to define her place in the world in view of Brexit. We have a responsibility to ensure that the abject horror of slavery is never forgotten".

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.

"Was quite an honor to be invited to the Grand Reception in honor of Thier Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall in Ghana to mark His Royal Highness' 70th Birthday".

On Monday night, Ghanaian President Nana Akufo-Addo held a state dinner to celebrate the British royals' visit.

Having followed them on their royal tour through France and Greece, Vanity Fair writer James Reginato had the chance to watch the royal couple's chemistry closely - and admitted after seeing how the Duchess of Cornwall engaged with everyone from fans to photographers, he believes she is "constitutionally suited to being Queen".

They arrived the Presidential Wing of the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport at about 2pm today Tuesday November 6th.

Charles' last trip to Nigeria was in 2006, but Camilla is visiting Africa's most populous nation for the first time.
