The purpose of the visit is to further strengthen the bond between the two countries and then identify areas of mutual benefit.
This visit is a reciprocal one to one in May this year by president Akufo-Addo.
The two leaders are expected to hold bilateral discussions, and later address a joint press conference.
They are also expected to sign a bilateral agreement and consequently outdoor a joint commission.
The commission would be responsible for the implementation of the recent judgement passed by the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea (ITLOS) on the delimitation of the maritime boundaries of Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire.
Ghanaians are however displeased with measures put in place to welcome president Ouattara.
YEN understands that school children have been lined up on selected principal streets of the nation’s capital, to welcome the visiting president.
Concerns have been raised about the number of hours they have been at the mercy of the scorching sun, as well as the loss of school hours.
According to sources, the pupils, who are students of La Yahoshua JHS, were located at the Total fuel station at 37 junction, close to the Golden Tulip hotel.
Available information indicates that they (the students) were not even provided with drinking water, and as such an attendant at the fuel station had to come to their rescue.
