The President of Ghana, Nana Akufo Addo, has rubbished an article alleging that he wrote to the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, to give the Labour Party candidate, Peter Obi, a chance to become President in 2023.
The said article also said Akufo Addo advised Tinubu to go seek treatment for his health.
Reacting, the Ghanaian President said he didn’t author such, adding that he cannot hamper the cordial relationship between his country and Nigeria by interfering in the neighbouring country’s affairs.
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.”

Reacting, political activist, Deji Adeyanju, attributed the letter to the handwork of Obi’s supporters.
He tweeted, “Everything about the Obedients are lies, fake news, insults and propaganda. Social media presidency folks.”
He had earlier described Obi as a scam while reacting to claims that the former Anambra State governor does not fly private jet.
The Abuja-based rights activist claimed that Obi uses private jets a lot.
A Twitter user, @Naija_PR posted the video of Obi with the message: “Peter Obi spotted queuing at the airport, we hope this will continue if he becomes the president.”
Responding to the video, Adeyanju recalled how Obi used a private jet for two months during his presidential campaign with Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in 2019.
In a tweet, Adeyanju wrote: “This is a scam. Obi uses PJ all the time. In 2019 during their presidential campaign with Atiku, he used a private jet permanently for 2-months that he paid $600k for.
“Atiku later paid part of the money. He’s still owing the company about $300k. Even recently he still used PJ.”
