The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration has debunked claims that Ghana has demanded the suspension of Chad from the African Union (AU).
According to the Ministry, a social media publication attributed the alleged report to Radio France International (RFI) where it indicated that Ghana had demanded for Chad to be suspended from the AU due to a military coup d’tat where the Chadian President Idris was killed a few weeks ago in an alleged gun battle with rebels.
But in a statement, the Ministry stated unequivocally that the “Government of Ghana has not made any such pronouncement on the political situation in Chad”.
“To that end, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration further wishes to seize this opportunity to urge all actors in the media space to be circumspect in putting out publications which do not inure to good relations between sisterly African Countries”, it added.
