Heir to the British throne Prince Charles and his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla, have arrived Abuja, Nigeria’s capital, in what is the third stop of their West African tour after making trips to Gambia and Ghana.
It is reported that Prince Charles will be addressing Nigeria’s herdsmen crisis and strengthening relations between UK and Africa’s most populous nation.
In Ghana, the Prince acknowledged Britain’s role in the slave trade, pointing out that “The appalling atrocity of the slave trade, and the unimaginable suffering it caused, left an indelible stain on the history of our world.
While Britain can be proud that it later led the way in the abolition of this shameful trade, we have a shared responsibility to ensure that the abject horror of slavery is never forgotten,” Charles said in his Ghana speech.
The Prince who last visited the country in 2006 during President Olusegun Obasanjo administration will have an audience with the President at his office later today.
