NAN also reports that the Benin monarch, Omo N'Oba Ewuare II, had, on Sunday, arrived in Abuja ahead of Prince Charles' visit to Nigeria.

Britain had been involved in the transatlantic slave trade for more than 200 years by the time it abolished the trade in 1807, although the full abolition of slavery did not follow for another generation.

"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.

The Prince of Wales, Prince Charles has held talks with President Akufo-Addo on trade and investments between Ghana and the United Kingdom (UK).

Charles who is on the second of a three-nation African tour was delivering an address at the Accra International Conference Center, AICC.

The award citation captured all the achievements and life experiences of the heir apparent to the British Throne and was read by Secretary to the President, Nana Badiatuo Asante. "We have a responsibility to ensure that the abject horror of slavery is never forgotten".

Prince Charles recounted how he was welcomed to the Manhyia Palace in 1977 with a colourful durbar, saying he was always eager to return to Manhyia.

In April 2018, the Princess Royal, Princess Anne, visited Ghana shortly after he assumed office as President of Ghana after first visiting Ghana in 1998.

Charles and Camilla are coming towards the end of their nine-day tour, which has seen them visit The Gambia, Ghana and finally Nigeria.

The Prince of Wales has acknowledged Britain's role in the transatlantic slave trade but stopped short of giving an official apology, which is likely to disappoint campaigners who have long called on the British Royal Family to do so.
