Ghana’s President, Nana Akufo-Addo, rejected a Facebook post that claimed he told Bola Tinubu, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate, to give Peter Obi a chance ahead of the country’s 2023 general elections.
The Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Obi, was mentioned in a message that President Akufo-Addo called false and prankish on Twitter.
The Ghanaian president asserts that he did not write such a message and has no intention of meddling in Nigeria’s politics or domestic issues.

“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’,” Akufo-Addo wrote.
“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.”
