Ghana debunks alleged Akufo-Addo’s disparaging comment on Nigeria

The Ghanaian government has denied a disparaging comment credited to its President, Nana Akufo-Addo, on Nigeria and Nigerians.
The Ghanaian president, in the report on social media, was alleged to have asked Nigerians to go back to their country and make it better.
The headline of the publication read: “Go Back to your Country and Make it Better- Nana Akufo tells Nigerians.”
The report read: “The Nigerian government sending special envoys to us will never change the way we will govern our nation.
“The same Ghanaians you chased away in 1983 during Buhari administration is the same Ghanaians Nigerians are running to for shelter. We fought for a better Ghana with our 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.”
Reacting to the publication, the Ghanaian government, in a statement released to the Nigerian media by the Ghana High Commission in Nigeria on Monday, said: “The attention of Ghanaian officials has been drawn to another spurious publication by faceless individuals who are hell bent on destroying the very cordial and brotherly relations existing between our leaders (President Akufo Addo and President Buhari).
“President Akufo Addo has not and will not make any disparaging remarks about any country and her people, let alone a very strategic partner like the Federal Republic of Nigeria and her people.
“Clearly this is the work of people who hate the progress the two leaders are making to forge more deepened and strategic relations.
