Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has arrived in Ghana to begin his two day visit to the West African country.

The visit is the last of a three leg African tour, having already visited Benin and Niger.

Ahmadinejad was met on arrival at the Kotoka International Airport at 1730 GMT by Ghana’s President John Mahama.

Joy News’ Presidential correspondent Seth Kwame Boateng confirmed the arrival, adding there will be an official dinner in honour of the Iranian leader later Tuesday at the Banquet Hall.

He is scheduled to meet the Speaker of Parliament Doe Adjaho on Wednesday before holding bilateral discussions with the Ghanaian leader.

The Iranian leader was accompanied by an eight-member delegation.

He is also expected to have a public lecture at the Islamic University College in Accra after which he will lay a wreath at the Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum.
