Ghana High Commission Reacts To Alleged Letter From President Akufo-Addo Asking Tinubu To Step Down For Obi
Peter Obi and Bola Tinubu

The Ghanaian High Commission in Nigeria has refuted the alleged letter written by the nation’s President, Nana Akufo-Addo about the 2023 presidential election in Nigeria.

Naija News recalls a letter which surfaced last week had claimed President Akufo-Addo asked the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential flag-bearer, Bola Tinubu to step aside for the Labour Party (LP) Presidential candidate, Peter Obi.

The said letter claimed Tinubu needed to take care of his health and should therefore step down for Obi

However, the Ghanaian High Commissioner to Nigeria, Mr Rashid Bawa on Sunday denied any such letter. This comes days after President Akufo-Addo had also debunked the letter.

Bawa stated that Nigeria and Ghana have always maintained the principle of non-interference in the internal political mechanisms of other countries, hence there is no iota of truth in the purported letter.

According to him, “to that end, the President of the Republic of Ghana will not interfere in Nigeria’s internal affairs and politics, as captured in the series of tweets of Tuesday, 9 August 2022, from His Excellency’s Twitter handle (@NAkufoAddo).

“It is hoped that this added perspective would serve to dispel misconceptions created by the online publication.”
