The Presidency has come out to say that Nigeria will not retaliate or do something identical to what some Ghanaians did to a part of her embassy in Ghana.

The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Malam Garba Shehu revealed this in a recent statement.

According to him, Nigeria will not take revenge against Ghana over the demolition because the President of Ghana regrets the action and has since apologized to the President of Nigeria.

He added that Buhari is well respected in Africa so he would surely show restraint during infuriating cases like this.

His words, “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 and what should Nigeria do; these are two leading countries in West Africa.

“Nigeria will not engage in a street fight with Ghana. This cannot happen. So, the two leaders, especially President Muhammadu Buhari, who is much respected in Africa, they all call him ‘Baba’ (Father), so he is bound to show restraint.”

“Matters such as this when they arise, it is always better when they arise, they should be resolved diplomatically.

“No, there shouldn’t be a fight between Nigeria and Ghana, this will not happen.”
