President of Ghana Nana Akufo-Addo has arrived in Barbados 

The Ghanaian leader and his entourage touched down at the Grantley Adams International Airport via a private jet just after 10:30 a.m. 

As he descended the aircraft, he was welcomed by the sounds from the Barbados Defence Force Band. 

On the tarmac, Akufo-Addo was greeted by Prime Minister Mia Mottley who was waiting on the red carpet. 

As the 21-gun salute began, Chief of Staff Of the Barbados Defence Force, Colonel Glyne Grannum; Minister Of Foreign Affairs, Senator Jerome Walcott, Minister of Innovation Kay McConney and scores of airport staff looked on.
