2023: I didn’t ask Tinubu to step down for Peter Obi, says Ghana president

Ghanaian President, Nana Akufo-Addo has reacted to a viral post on social media where it was alleged that he advised presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu to step down for Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP).

In a post on social media attributed to Akufo-Addo, the Ghanaian President purportedly urged Tinubu to step down for the Presidential candidate of the Labour Party to enable him (Tinubu) to pay close attention to his failing health.

The post was shared several times on the social networking app, Facebook and re-shared to other platforms.

But reacting in a statement on his official Twitter handle, Akufo-Addo asked the public to disregard the message.

He described the story as not only false but also mischievous. The president added that he would never interfere in the internal affairs of Nigeria.

He tweeted, “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.”

Controversies have trailed Tinubu’s presidential ambition, particularly with regards to his health and age.
