Ghanaian President denies asking Tinubu to step down for Peter Obi

By  | 

Ghanaian President, Nana Akufo-Addo has denied reports that he asked the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to relinquish his presidential bid to back the candidacy of the Labour Party flagbearer, Peter Obi in the 2023 elections.

An unconfirmed report had claimed that Akufo-Addo wrote a letter to Tinubu, urging to step aside for Obi on grounds of his ill-health.

But, the Ghanaian President has dismissed the claim, insisting that he never wrote such letter to the APC flagbearer, and has no intention to do so.

In a series of tweets on Tuesday evening, Akufo-Addo declared that he wouldn’t meddle into the politics of Nigeria.

He wrote, “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.”
