Ghanaian President, Nana Akufo-Addo, has denied endorsing the Presidential Candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi.
Akufo-Addo was alleged to have written a letter, which has since gone viral, to the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
While reacting to rumours spreading that he asked Tinubu to step down for the Obi, the Ghanaian president stated that the letter was the handwork of mischievous elements.
Akufo-Addo also noted that he never told Tinubu to seek treatment for his health, as contained in the purported letter making the rounds on social media.
He, therefore, advised people to disregard the fake report in a post via his verified Twitter handle.
Th 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.”
