British Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn will be on a four-day fact-finding trip to Ghana next week at a time it has become crucial for him to build cross-party support for his bid to become Prime Minister.
Corbyn is scheduled to meet with Ghanaian president Nana Akufo-Addo at the seat of government – Jubilee House.
His trip has raised several eyebrows within his party.
One Labour MP said: “It would help matters if the party leader wasn’t going abroad at such a time but what would help most is if he wasn’t Labour leader.”
“People in his own party don’t trust him so what chance is there of people in other parties backing him.”
It is unclear what Mr Corbyn will learn on the trip, according to UK newspaper The Sun.
Corbyn will also confer with former president and flagbearer of opposition National Democratic Congress John Mahama and CPP stalwart Edmund Delle.
