Ghana High commission speaks on report of Ghanaian President, Akufo Addo calling for Revolution in Nigeria
The Ghana High commission in Nigeria has expressed outrage over comments credited to President Akufo Addo.
The mission in a statement on Monday, said Addo never made disparaging remarks about Nigeria and President Muhammadu Buhari.
A publication had claimed Addo called for a revolution in Nigeria.
Ghana said the act of the “faceless individuals” was aimed at marrying the existing diplomatic relations between Ghana and Nigeria.
” President Akufo Addo has not and will not make any disparaging remarks about any country and her people, let alone a very strategy partner like Nigeria and her people.
” Clearly this is the work of people who hate progress, which the two leaders are making to forge more deepened and strategic relation”.
The news story carry the headline “Go back to your country and make it better, Nana Afufo tells Nigerians”.
The mission called it fake and dismissed the purported statement attributed to the president which read: ” The same Ghanaians you chased in 1983 during Buhari administration is the same Ghanaians Nigerians are running to for shelter.”
The publication quoted Addo as saying his nation fought for a better Ghana with blood by carrying out a revolution.
“We killed corrupt politicians for Ghana to be a new nation. Nigerians are been chased in South Africa, Kenya, Senegal, UAE, all over the world because of failed government.
“The government of Nigeria is a disgrace to Democracy and Justice in Africa; we expect Nigerian youths to wake up from their slumber for a better Nigeria.”
