Over 40 African leaders, including Akufo-Addo, are present for the US-Africa Leaders’ summit, which is being hosted by Joe Biden.
The US president hosted the African leaders to a dinner in addition to the important diplomatic, bilateral, and multilateral engagements the leaders conducted with the US government and other development partners.
The moment the President and Rebecca arrived at the White House for the meal is captured in photos posted on the President’s Facebook account, as are pictures of them with Joe and Jill Biden.
Akufo-Addo has made an official trip to Washington since Biden was elected president, but Kamala Harris, the vice president, hosted him.
The summit of US and African leaders in 2022 began on December 13 and runs through December 15. It is the second such event; the first was hosted by Joe Biden, who served as Barack Obama’s vice president at the time.
Ghana was represented by then-President John Dramani Mahama and wife Lordina Mahama in 2014 when the Obama White House hosted African leaders.
