President Buhari, has clarified some comments supposedly made by the Speaker of Parliament of Nigeria on having to deal with Ghana.
The speaker had said Nigeria should deal sternly and aggressively with Ghana in relation to the demolition of some structures at the Nigeria High Commission.
However, President Buhari reiterated otherwise that, the government of Nigeria would resolve the issue diplomatically with the government of Ghana.
Mr. Garba Shebu, the Senior Special Assistant to President Buhari said this in an interview with the Media and Publicity.
It would be recalled that, there were some reports in the media that the Speaker of Parliament in Nigeria in addressing a report by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Geoffrey Onyeama to the house that Ghana had apologized to the demolition incident asked Nigeria to retaliate against Ghana.
Meanwhile, Mr. Garba Shebu said that government would resolve the matter diplomatically as the president of Ghana exhibited great leadership by calling President Buhari to apologise.
The Senior Assistant to the President said: “The President of Ghana has called and regretted the action and apologised to the President of Nigeria.
“I think he has shown leadership in the matter, Nigeria will not engage Ghana in a street fight. No, this cannot happen because the two are leading countries in West Africa,” he further noted.
