Chinese Police Band surprises Akufo-Addo
Chinese President Xi Jinping held talks on Saturday with visiting Ghanaian President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, and the two leaders agreed to introduce a new vitality into bilateral relations.
President Akufo-Addo is on a state visit to China. He will also participate in the 2018 Beijing Summit of the China-Africa Cooperation Forum scheduled for 3-4 September.
The Chinese police band surprised President Akufo-Addo with a musical treat by playing one of his favourite songs 'Oye' - [God is good].
The president is expected to finalise an 'infrastructure-for-bauxite' agreement which will see the Chinese government construct $2bn worth of roads, hospitals, bridges and other infrastructure in exchange for access to Ghana's bauxite deposits.
The two governments appear to find this arrangement good news perhaps the reason for playing the popular local Ghanaian song which contains lines like ' I have heard some good news'.
