A statement issued by his press secretary, Eugene Arhin, on Thursday, October 15 said Nana Addo will travel to North America next.

The presidential candidate will also attend NPP programmes in Washington, New York and Columbus, Ohio, where his wife, Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo, will be the Special Guest of Honour at an event organised by the NPP-USA Women’s Wing.

He will then move to Canada.
