President Buhari smiles with President Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana
The Ghana High Commission in Nigeria has denied the alleged chastisement of Nigeria and its leadership by Ghanaian President Nana Akufo-Addo.
An official from the Abuja High Commission, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the comments on social media were nothing more than false news.
The official said in the reports alleging that the Ghanaian president made some provocative comments attacking the leadership and good people of Nigeria.
While describing the reports as misleading, the official said that “President Akufo-Addo greatly values the brotherhood of Ghana and Nigeria”.
Akufo-Addo is alleged to have said: “We must learn from Nigeria’s mistakes and must never be so stupid in our entire history.
“You cannot declare war on your country and you still enjoy federal allocation as a state except in complicity with the government.
“The Nigerian government is an ethnic government, not a nationalist government. What I can’t understand is why Nigerians aren’t angry enough themselves to change the situation. “
According to the official, the statements accredited to Mr President were false and misleading.
“There is no private or public occasion that President Akufo Addo has attacked the good people of Nigeria.
“Mr. The President greatly values the Brotherhood of Ghana and Nigeria.
This statement is the manual work of the enemies of the two fraternal countries, whose desire is to continue to see unnecessary tension among the good people of the two countries.
“We will continue to see peaceful coexistence between the good people of Ghana and Nigeria,” said the official.
The official, who kindly urged the public to kindly ignore the false information, assured that the Republic of Ghana and Federal Republic of Nigeria would continue to work together to promote the welfare of the two counties.
