Additionally, President Akufo-Addo advised the 3 new envoys to develop cordial working relations with the professional Foreign Service officers they will find at their duty posts, and also with members of the Ghanaian communities in their respective countries.

President Muhhammadu Buhari has preached a message of peace and unity at Ghana's independence celebrations.

Buhari who was invited as a special guest of honour is the only foreign guest invited by President Nana Akufo-Addo to address the august gathering.

President Buhari also used the opportunity to appeal to warring parties in Togo to resolve their differences, while acknowledging the role played by Ghana is ensuring such.

PDP insisted that Buhari has not done well in the fight against corruption in Nigeria and therefore, in no position place to help another country.

"In the same vein, we hope President Buhari notes that unlike his Ghanaian counterpart, who initiated development projects and opened factories, in Nigeria under his watch, many factories have shut down, infrastructures are collapsing, inflation has soared, fuel price has moved from N86.50 to N250-N300 per liter in various parts of his country, while the nation's debt profile has continued to escalate", PDP added.

"And in any case, crime is transnational so if a head of state comes to Ghana and pledges his commitment to collaborate with his fellow head of state to fight a crime, how is that an issue", he queried.

His words: "My tributes to you and the people of Ghana will not be complete without acknowledging your efforts at tackling corruption, which has eaten into the fabrics of our societies".

"I congratulate both the government and the Parliament for the quick passage of the Office of the Special Prosecutor Act and its signing into law".

"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".

The PDP, therefore, urges President Buhari's handlers to stop embarrassing the nation, especially at the global stage.

However, Buhari's promise has raised series of reactions from some Ghanaian citizens.
