August 10, (THEWILL) – Ghanaian President, Nana Akufo-Addo, has denied reports that he advised Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), to step down for Peter Obi, the Presidential candidate of Labour Party (LP) and seek treatment for his health.
President Akufo-Addo in a rebuttal on Twitter, described the report as malicious, adding that he will never interfere in Nigeria’s internal affairs and politics.
The tweet read: “My attention has been drawn to a disturbing post making the rounds on social media, where it is alleged I have written to the 2023 presidential candidate of the APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, to give Peter Obi a chance and seek treatment for his health.
“This is completely false and mischievous, with no iota of truth whatsoever in it.
“I have written no such letter to the APC leader, and it will not occur to me to do so.
“Ghana and Nigeria boast of decades of cordial, strong and brotherly relations, and I am not going to be the one to interfere in the internal affairs and politics of Nigeria.”
