Ghanaians are Happy that ‘Our Big Brother in Nigeria’ is well – Akuffo Addo

The President of Ghana Nana Akufo-Addo said at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Tuesday that he and other West African leaders were anxious over the ill-health of President Muhammadu Buhari which had kept him off official engagements for three months.

Akufo-Addo, who was on a friendly visit to Buhari, said that he was in Abuja to see for himself, saying he was glad to know the “Big brother in Nige­ria is well.”

He told journalists as he emerged from the meeting with Buhari that it was also an oppor­tunity he seized to discuss some bilateral issues with the Nigeri­an leader.

According to him, “I came from Accra today to visit my senior brother, President Mu­hammadu Buhari. All of us have been anxious about his well-be­ing and it is very good news to hear that he had returned.

“But we are Africans and I have to come and see him for myself and how he is. I’m very delighted to see that he came back very vigorous and as al­ways very engaged on the issues of our day.

“So, we had a good half an hour together reviewing matters both in Ghana and in Nigeria as well as immediate matters to do with what is going on in the Eco­nomic Community of West Af­rican State (ECOWAS) bloc.

“I’m very happy to have had this opportunity to come and I am going back to Ghana very fortified to be able to tell the Ghanaians that our ‘big broth­er’ in Nigeria is well and things are well here”, he said.

Addressing the press af­terwards, Buhari’s Special Ad­viser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, said that the meeting of the two leaders was significant and showed that the two big countries in West Afri­can are maintaining such cordial relationship.
