All of us have been very anxious about his well-being and it was pleasant news to hear that he had returned from London but we are Africans so I had to come and see for myself how he is doing and I am delighted to see that he is very vigorous. So we had a good half an hour together, reviewing matters both in Nigeria and Ghana” he said.
Nana Kufuour Addo said they also looked at issues that had to do with the entire West Africa region.
