Prince Charles described the slave trade as the most painful chapter in the history of Ghana's relationship with the United Kingdom and the rest of the European Union.

Heir to the British throne, Prince Charles and his wife, the Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla, have arrived in Abuja for a three-day visit to Nigeria.

Prince Charles, left, is welcomeb by Ghana's President, Nana Akufo-Addo at the Jubilee House in Accra, Ghana, Friday, Nov. 2, 2018.

During this visit, he would engage in peace-building activities, including addressing the persistent attacks of herdsmen on farming communities in Nigeria.

"Some of the issues like the farmers/herders crisis are deep-rooted and are about the economy, land resource, climate change and cultural issues".

"As you prepare to assume the position of Head of the Commonwealth, an organization to which you are deeply committed, I am confident that under your leadership, the bonds of cooperation amongst member states will be strengthened even further", the President noted.

The Prince of Wales was handed a calabash instrument, and while nervous at first, soon found his rhythm.

The Commonwealth has 53 member states who are all former colonists of Britain.

The Duchess of Cornwall put on a glamorous display in a pale pink Anna Valentine gown and her Van Cleef & Arpels Snowflake earrings and pendant necklace, while her husband sported a black tux.

"There is it seems to me, tremendous potential for the Commonwealth to share best practice and coordinate its response to these kind of disasters" Prince Charles said.

Prince Charles was particularly fascinated with a lion that was being carried by one of the servants of the Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II.

"One of his passions as well is how do we build the skills of young people so that they will be equipped for the world".

After the speech, the prince attended a plastics event where groups, from artists and civil society to the Ghanaian government and industry experts, outlined plans and ideas to tackle the issue.
