US First Lady Melania Trump arrives in Ghana on solo African trip

02 October, 2018, 22:25 | Author: Trevor Moore

US First Lady, Melania Trump, has arrived in Ghana as part of her extended solo global mission to Ghana.

She was met by her Ghanaian counterpart Rebecca Akufo-Addo and a group of local schoolchildren in yellow and brown uniforms waving the U.S. stars and stripes and the Ghanaian flag. She also watched a nurse demonstrate how vitamins are administered to babies by mouth and toured the neonatal intensive care unit.

The first lady's office has said the tour will be a "diplomatic and humanitarian visit" that will focus on her #BeBest campaign for "children and their well-being".

According to them, it is a lifetime opportunity their babies have had and, therefore, will never be forgotten.

She is expected to emphasize the health and education of children as part of her "Be Best" platform that she launched in May.

Petr Cech facing three-week absence says Unai Emery
On Iwobi , Emery added: "He works well every day". "Because the football career for the players is very short". I am happy because we are becoming more competitive. "We need to continue being calm, and giving them calm".

There's an overall sense of skepticism that exists around her trip and her motivations-and rightfully so.

The first ladies are meeting privately at Ghana's presidential palace, Jubilee House.

Mrs. Trump's visit opened in low-key fashion.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier shared a post talking about the evolution of Meghan Markle's fashion ever since she became a royal. Trump clapped her hands and waved at a group of school children waiting for her at the airport. Mrs. Akufo-Addo, I look forward to visiting your country and know we will find ways to continue working together even after my visit.

Ghana is the first African country Donald Trump's wife would visit before continuing to Malawi, Kenya and Egypt on her first visit to the continent.
