President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday received Prince Charles who last visited the country in 2006 during President Olusegun Obasanjo's tenure.

Britain had been involved in the transatlantic slave trade for more than 200 years by the time it abolished the trade in 1807, although the full abolition of slavery did not follow for another generation.

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 Asantehene and Prince Charles later exchanged special traditional gifts.

Charles also deliberately planted George's wood trees, so they have even more meaning to his young grandson.

Prince Charles made the call when he delivered a public lecture on the theme: "The Commonwealth- Towards a Common Future", at the Accra International Conference Centre, as part of activities marking his four-day visit to Ghana.

President Akufo-Addo, also assured Great Britain that even though the kingdom is now going through a hard time in finalising modalities for her exit from the European Union, Ghana remains a firm friend that stands shoulder to shoulder to develop on the basis of democratic values for the mutual benefit of their two countries.

Prince Charles was recently elected to succeed the Queen of England as head of the Commonwealth.

He made this demand during a closed door meeting with Prince Charles at the United Kingdom high commissioner's residence in Maitama, Abuja on Tuesday, November 6.

The royal couple attended a state dinner on Monday night before heading to Nigeria on the next leg of their West African tour - and it looks like the pair couldn't resist taking to the dance floor with the President and the First Lady of Ghana.

The castle later became the seat of the Ghanaian government after the country's independence from Britain in 1957.
