President Nana Akufo-Addo on Tuesday paid a brief visit to the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari.

Addressing a press conference after the visit, President Akufo-Addo noted that “all of us have been very anxious about his (President Buhari) well-being.

He added that he is “very delighted to see that he has come back, and is very vigorous, and, as always, very engaged in the issues of the day. We had a good half an hour together; reviewing matters, both in Ghana and Nigeria, as well as matters to do with what is going on in the ECOWAS community.”

The two Heads-of-State also discussed matters bordering on the rapid expansion and growth of their respective economies, and the fight against terrorism on the continent and in the world.
