Ghana is an African country that has so many things in common with Nigeria. While it got her independence on March 6th, 1957, that of Nigeria was October 1st, 1960. The country produced Kwame Nkrumah who believed in Africanism and advanced points for having a United States of Africa, Nigeria also had Nnamdi Azikwe who sort of shared same idea and was nicknamed ‘Zik’ of Africa. The story here is that a good number of Nigerian leaders visit the country regularly for business concerns and some other purposes. Ghana’s capital, Accra is a beautiful city and it is a good resting place for prominent personalities in Nigeria. There are, however, three main hotels in Accra that enjoy the preference of the visiting Nigerian leaders.
Lapalm, Labadi and Aliza hotels are all located in Accra. The one located near the beach is where the Queen of England stayed when she visited Ghana and sources hinted that it was not allowed for lodgers three months ahead of the visit.
Former Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon stays at Lapalm when on a visit to Ghana while Asiwaju Bola Tinubu stays at Aliza. The hotel boasts of first class facilities and the last floor at Aliza where top personalities stay is not accessible to anyone apart from the guest and his visitors that must have got prior clearance as a separate lift for the floor has its automated access cards.
