In his proposal of toast at a state dinner at the Jubilee House, in honour of their Royal Highnesses, the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall, on the occasion of their visit to the Republic of Ghana, President Akufo-Addo said, "At the moment, Britain is going through hard moments in trying to define her place in the world in view of Brexit".

According to the statement released by British High Commissioner, Paul Arkwright, who announced their visit last month, the royal couple will undertake a series of engagements in Abuja and Lagos.

Herdsmen have launched a deadly onslaught on farming communities in Nigeria in recent years, raising concerns over the future of agriculture in a nation, having majority of its populace engaged in subsistence agriculture.

It was also gathered that the visit was aimed at strengthening the ties between Nigeria and the Britain as members of the Commonwealth.

The prince and his wife, Princess Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, who are visiting together, were in The Gambia and Ghana earlier.

The Asantehene and Prince Charles later exchanged special traditional gifts.

"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 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.

"We have got to start thinking how we could build vertically so that more families live on one plot, we free up the land, improve the yield on agriculture and begin to confront some of these challenges of demographics".

The Prince of Wales has canceled his trip to Jos in Plateau State, Nigeria, over security concerns, following months of deadly clashes between nomadic herders and farmers in the restive region.
