Akuffo-Addo Embarks On Burkina Faso Visit To Discuss Major Security Issues

The president of Ghana, H.E Nana Akuffo-Addo has made his first state visit to Burkina Faso to discuss issues relating to security and Russian mercenaries on the West African sub-continent.

On Thursday, the Burkinabe Presidency made a shocking announcement of the presence of Russian mercenaries in its country.

Akuffo-Addo’s visit is therefore a matter of dire importance. The meeting which was closed to public press was held between Ghana’s president and the Burkinabe military leader Captain Ibrahim Traore on what is claimed to be “major issues in the region regarding security challenge ”


Ghana has recently been in heated sparks with Burkina Faso on what appears to be issues pertaining to the maintenance of sound security in the subcontinent.

Six months ago, there had been agitated confrontations when Ghana’s president at a meeting with US Secretary of State, Anthony Blinken, made triggering remarks concerning Burkina Faso.

Akuffo-Addo had said; “I believe a (mineral) mine in southern Burkina has been allocated to them as a form of payment.”

The Burkinabe government condemned Akuffo-Addo’ s remarks, asked it’s ambassador to lay down duties in Accra and called in, on the Ghanaian ambassador in Burkina Faso for a dress-down.

Tensions in Burkina Faso has been increasing especially after Traore ascended the presidential throne through a coup.

Since then, Burkina Faso’s with Russia has grown intense and warmer while French troupes were being pushed out of the country.
