Ghanaian president denies writing Tinubu over Obi’s candidature

Ghanaian President Nana Akufo-Addo has denied writing a letter to the ruling All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, requesting that he give the Labour Party presidential candidate, Mr. Peter Obi, a chance in the upcoming 2023 presidential elections.

Akufo-Addo also stated that he never advised Tinubu to seek medical treatment, as stated in the alleged letter circulating on social media.

Advising people via his verified Twitter handle to disregard the fake report, the Ghanaian President 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.”
