Ghana has denied issuing an advisory to its nationals living in Nigeria. The directive, which surfaced on the internet on Tuesday warned Ghanaians about an impending terrorist attack on Abuja, the capital of Nigeria. It was purported to have been issued by the country’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration.
But, in a rejoinder issued on Wednesday, the Ghanaian authorities disowned the advisory.
The rejoinder read, “The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration wishes to refer to the travel advisory published this evening, Wednesday, November 16, 2022, advising against non-essential travel to Abuja and wishes to state that the statement was unauthorised.
“The Ministry is not aware of any threat targeted at Ghanaians who continue to live in harmony with their Nigerian brothers and sisters.
“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration regrets any inconvenience this may have caused to the travelling public.”
