The Information Minister-designate has said the two-day visit of the American First Lady, Melania Trump, will boost the country's tourism drive.

Mrs. Trump also cradled an infant and declared the baby a "beautiful boy" as she handed him back to his mother.

Trump also visited a baby clinic where she saw babies getting weighed as part of a nutritional program and distributed teddy bears wrapped in baby blankets.

The "Be Best" initiative was launched earlier this year to focus on overall child well-being with an emphasis on opioid addiction and online behaviour.

Her son, Barron, did not accompany her on the trip.

After encountering the Gi sisters in real life, she allegedly ordered members of her posse to attack them. A Queens District Attorney spokesperson told CNN a court date in the case is scheduled for October 29.

The US first lady stepped off an overnight flight from Andrews Airforce Base near Washington and onto a red carpet at Accra's Kotoka International Airport.

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

"Did you say President Trump's wife just arrived in Accra?" street vendor Awo Yeboah asked. She was welcomed at the airport with dancing and drumming, schoolchildren waving mini US and Ghanaian flags and the gift of a flower bouquet. Mrs. Akufo-Addo, I look forward to visiting your country and know we will find ways to continue working together even after my visit.

In her week-long visit of Africa, Melania is expected to also tour Kenya, Malawi and Egypt.
