First photos of Melania Trump's arrival in Ghana

US first lady Melania Trump arrives in Accra Ghana as she begins her tour of several African countries

Ghana's first lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo, welcomed her American counterpart. She toured wings of the hospital and distributed gifts of teddy bears wrapped in baby blankets.

She'll also be implementing her Be Best program aimed at tackling cyberbullying, which is just really ironic considering she lives with the biggest cyberbully in the world. It's also her first visit to Africa.

Her trip is expected to include a bevy of visits to schools, shelters and hospitals while she focuses on the well-being of children.

Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah said the visit from October 2-3 will as well help strengthen Ghana's relationship with the United States.

Mrs. Trump's visit opened in low-key fashion.

The first ladies met privately at Ghana's presidential palace, the Jubilee House after meeting for the first time at the United Nations General Assembly meeting in NY last week.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com had earlier shared a post talking about the evolution of Meghan Markle's fashion ever since she became a royal.

Mrs. Trump landed in the capital, Accra, on Tuesday morning after a more than 12-hour journey from Washington.

Next up on her trip are visits to Malawi, Kenya and Egypt. Trump joins a list of former first ladies - Hillary Clinton, Laura Bush and Michelle Obama - who also made solo trips to Africa. Mrs. Akufo-Addo, I look forward to visiting your country and know we will find ways to continue working together even after my visit.
