Barack Obama to visit Ghana

Barack Obama beams with hopes

Can Barack Obama save Africa?

US President Barack Obama is scheduled to embark on a two-day state visit to the West African country of Ghana in July. His wife, Michelle Obama and other high ranking government officials are expected to accompany him. Obama and his delegation will also visit the Cape Coast Castle – an epitome of the slave era – in the central region of Ghana.

A statement from the Foreign Affairs Ministry of the country said Obama is due from 10 – 11 July, 2009. “During his visit, President Obama will hold bilateral talks with his Ghanaian counterpart, President John Evans Atta Mills, aimed at strengthening the fraternal relations existing between the two countries,” the statement said.

During the visit Obama hopes to highlight the “critical role that sound governance and civil society play in promoting lasting development”, the White House said in a BBC report. Obama, preoccupied with foreign policy challenges elsewhere in the world, has not yet articulated a detailed policy for Africa.
