Prince Charles cuts out stop in Nigeria over security concerns

While attending a state banquet at Ghana's Jubilee House on Monday (Nov. 5), the British royals joined President Nana Akufo-Addo and First Lady Rebecca Akufo-Addo to stretch their legs - and show off some moves! - on the dance floor.

For a state banquet, the duo certainly looked the part, too, with the almost 70-year-old prince dusting off his finest tuxedo and his wife getting dolled up in a pastel pink gown and handsome chandelier earrings.

The third day of the royal visit to Ghana saw the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall welcomed in a "Durbar", a lively ceremony honouring chiefs with gifts and a meeting with the King of the Ashantis.

"The appalling atrocity of the slave trade and the unimaginable suffering it caused left an indelible stain on the history of the world".

PDP said the British prince should urge Buhari to accept his imminent defeat during the 2019 Presidential election.

Britain abolished the trans-Atlantic slave trade in 1807; although the full abolition of slavery arrived a generation after.

In his speech in Accra, Charles, who earlier this year was approved as successor to his 92-year-oldmother Queen Elizabeth as head of the Commonwealth, spoke of the role the loose alliance of 53 member-states could play in tackling climate change, a key campaigning issue of the prince.

The couple's three-day visit to Nigeria is part of their nine-day tour of Africa.

NAN also reports that the Benin monarch, Omo N'Oba Ewuare II, had, on Sunday, arrived in Abuja ahead of Prince Charles' visit to Nigeria. The prince is to engage in peace-building activities and the royal duo are expected to be in Nigeria from Tuesday, November 6, to Thursday, November 8.
