Ghana@61:Buhari Congratulates Ghanaians

But the PDP argued that Buhari should have used the benefit of his state visit to Ghana to draw lessons from his Ghanian counterpart, President Nana Akufo-Addo, on how to run a peaceful, united and economically vibrant nation and not embarrass Nigeria.

They criticised President Buhari for offering to assist Ghana in her war against corruption after the Transparency International revealed in its recent report that corruption has worsened in Nigeria.

The President who addressed Ghanaians at the nation's 61st-anniversary celebration which took place at the Black Star Stadium, Accra Ghana, also expressed hope that both Nigeria and Ghana will continue to co-exist peacefully. Frank Okyere, thanked the president and the government and people of Ghana for the honour done them.

"When President Buhari was reeling out President Akufo-Addo achievements in his one year in office, his ingenious approach to job creation, the farming for job initiative, the senior high school free education, one district-one factory projects and one village-one dam initiatives among others; we hope our dear President reflected on the fact that back home, his inept government had instead, wrecked our once robust economy".

"Rather than promise to help Ghana fight corruption, show by example that you are fighting corruption, and not opposition in Nigeria", Bruce said. "Given all these public policies, it becomes reassuring that with the right leadership, Africa's drives to eradicate poverty and to entrench democracy is on course".

It noted that the determination of his government to wean itself of foreign aid was based on the fact that it was not the panacea for national socio-economic transformation.

"Long Live, the Republic of Ghana, Long Live, the Federal Republic of Nigeria".

"Permit me to put on record Ghana's untiring effort in brokering peace in Togo by bringing all the warring factions to the negotiating table". I am appealing to the opposing parties in Togo to please come together and resolve their differences so that Togo will move forward.
