The Ghanaian President stated that he felicitated with Buhari on his return and also engaged him on other bilateral issues bothering on the relationship between the two countries.
““I came from Accra today to come and visit my senior brother, President Muhammadu Buhari. All of us have been anxious about his well-being and with very good news to hear that he had returned.
”But, we are Africans, and I have to come and see him for myself how he was and 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 States (ECOWAS).
”So, I’m very happy to have had this opportunity to come and I’m going back to Ghana very fortified to be able to tell Ghanaians that our big brother Nigeria is well and things are well in hand here,’’ he said.
