Nigeria won’t engage in street fight with Ghana -Presidency

June 25, 2020 By 0 Comments

The Presidency on Wednesday said the Federal Government would not engage in what it called “street fight” over the demolition of a building on the premises of the Nigerian High Commission in Accra, Ghana.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, said this in an interview with State House correspondents.

The House of Representatives had on Tuesday faulted the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama, on the claim that Ghana has apologised to Nigeria on the demolition.

The House, while dismissing the call for diplomatic negotiations by the minister, maintained that Nigeria should seek retaliation against Ghana over the demolition which it described as an attack on the country.

But Shehu told reporters that the issue would be resolved diplomatically. He said the Ghanian President, Nana Akufo-Addo, showed leadership by calling the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), to apologise.

The presidential aide said, “The President of Ghana has called and regretted the action and apologised to the President of Nigeria.
