Prince Charles, Duchess of Cornwall arrive Abuja

Healing old wounds Prince Charles acknowledged Britain's role in the slave trade in a speech in Ghana

"Prince Charles has not been here since the past 12 years".

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.

"We also call on Prince Charles to take President Buhari to task on his administration's cavernous corruption, disobedience to court orders, as well as its divisive proclivities, aloofness and insensitivity to the plight of Nigerians leading to escalation of violence, etc".

He described the occurrence of centuries ago as among others, "an appalling atrocity, indelible stain, shameful trade" and "abject horror", that should never be forgotten.

Britain outlawed slavery in 1833 but it was abolished in the U.S. after the defeat of the Confederacy in the Civil War in 1865.

Built in 1661, the castle was a principal holding cell for enslaved Africans during the trans-Atlantic slave trade. The main market for the slaves was Brazil, where slavery was not abolished until 1888.

In a busy day of engagements, the Prince also visited Kumasi market, where he saw a new building, partly funded by the United Kingdom, which will replace an expansive market of make-shift stalls where evil are fires put the lives of traders, and its one million daily shoppers, at risk.

They started the tour last week from Gambia which recently re-joined the commonwealth.

"As you prepare to assume the position of Head of the Commonwealth, an organization to which you are deeply committed, I am confident that under your leadership, the bonds of cooperation amongst member states will be strengthened even further", the President noted.

The Prince of Wales, Prince Charles on Monday urged Ghana to leverage its active role in the Commonwealth and its influence in Africa to lead the fight to mitigate the effect of the climate change phenomenon.
