Laura Bush arrives back from Liberia


Accra, Jan. 16, GNA - American First Lady Laura Bush on Monday returned to Accra from Monrovia, Liberia, after attending the inauguration of Liberian Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf as President of the country in Monrovia.

The inauguration, which signified the end of more than 13-years of civil war in that country, attracted several other international dignitaries, including President John Agyekum Kufuor and U.S Secretary of State, Condoleeza Rice.

On Tuesday, the American First lady would speak at the Accra Teacher Training College on "Teacher Training and Education" and also visit the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital and meet women and girls HIV/AIDS patients.

She would later hold talks with President John Agyekum Kufuor at the Castle.

Mrs Bush would fly out of Accra on Tuesday to Abuja, Nigeria, where she is expected to meet with President Olusegun Obasanjo, visit a hospital and a school and participate in a roundtable at the National Centre for Women Development.

Mrs Bush, 60, is the second US First Lady to visit Ghana in eight years after Hillary Rodham Clinton, who accompanied his husband, Bill, to Ghana in March 1998.
