Turkish President to address Parliament

The President of Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, will deliver an address in Parliament today, as part of his two-day visit to the country.

The Turkish President who arrived in the country last night, is expected to touch on the bilateral relationship and trade between Turkey and Ghana, among other issues of interest to the two nations.

It will be the second time in a month the political head of another country is delivering a speech in the house.

Mr. Matteo Renzi, the Italian Prime Minister, addressed the House last month.

The Majority Leader, Alban Bagbin, last Friday, announced the Turkish President’s visit to the House, and urged the members to be present on time for the address.

A statement from the Public Affairs Department of Parliament, signed by the Deputy Director, Kate Addo, said issues of migration and employment between the two countries would also feature in the Turkish President’s speech.

“The Parliament of Ghana has indicated its preparedness to host the Turkish president,” the statement said.
