Akufo-Addo has not congratulated Boakai – Mustapha Hamid

Information Minister Mustapha Hamid has rejected claims that president Akufo-Addo has congratulated one of the contestants in Liberia’s presidential election run-off.

Reports making rounds on social media and some news portals accused the president of mistakenly congratulating Joseph Boakai one of the candidates in the election.

But Mr Hamid in a facebook post said “We wish to state categorically that the President has made no such call, and we urge Ghanaians to disregard this false news. Just like the rest of the world, we will await the results of the run-off as declared by Liberia’s Electoral Commission.”

The attention of the Office of the President has been drawn to a false news report that President Akufo-Addo has congratulated one of the contestants in Liberia’s Presidential run-off.

Unsurprisingly, this fake news is making the rounds on news portals belonging to political opponents of government, and being circulated on social media by political opponents.

We wish to state categorically that the President has made no such call, and we urge Ghanaians to disregard this false news. Just like the rest of the world, we will await the results of the run-off as declared by Liberia’s Electoral Commission.
