Prince Charles condemns modern slave trade

Prince Charles condemns modern slave trade

Earlier this week, Camilla was credited with bringing the "sparkle" back to Prince Charles' eye in an intimate magazine article, which gave an inside glimpse at the couple's marriage like never before.

Mailonline reports that Prince Charles and his second wife, Camilla, arrived in the Nigerian capital Abuja on Tuesday, on the tail end of a West African tour that has included Gambia and Ghana.

The British high commissioner to Nigeria, Paul Arkwright, announced in Abuja on Sunday, November 4, that Prince Charles would engage in peace-building activities, including addressing the persistent attacks of herdsmen on farming communities in Nigeria.

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall are also expected to have audience with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa.

It has always been a hotbed of ethnic, sectarian and religious tensions that flare up during election season.

The statement read, "The British leader to counsel President Buhari not to attempt to rig the 2019 Presidential election but be ready to accept his imminent defeat in the polls, since it is clear that Nigerians have rejected him because of his incompetence and his administration's apparent disdain for their safety and wellbeing".

Britain's involvement in the transatlantic slave trade was an appalling atrocity that has left an "indelible stain" on the world, Prince Charles has acknowledged. They were received by top government officials.

After the welcome formalities, they retired into the President's office where they held talks.

Travelling separately for part of the trip to allow them to meet more people, the Duchess visited the National Cultural Centre where she bought drums as a gift for each of her grandchildren.
