The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has resumed work after taking seven days off to catch some rest, the first since his assumed office some 16 months ago.
The President was met on arrival at the Jubilee Lounge of the Kotoka International Airport by the Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, and other government officials.
Whilst abroad, the President honoured two public engagements. One on Friday, May 11, 2018, where he spoke at the University of Oxford, as part of its 2018 Africa Conference, on the theme “Enough Rhetoric! Catalysing an Era of Concrete Action”.
On Saturday, May 12, 2018, the President delivered the keynote address at the London Business School’s Africa Business Summit.
On May 13, 2018, the President also took the opportunity of his vacation to attend the Anglican confirmation ceremony of his grandson, Louis, at his old school, Lancing College, in Sussex.
President Akufo-Addo was accompanied by the First Lady, Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo, his children and grandchildren, and paid for the expenses of the trip, himself.
