During Ghana's 61st independence day anniversary celebrations the Nigerian Head of State, President Mahammadu Buhari, offered to help Ghana on its fight to rid the country of corruption.
Though the Nigerian Head of State may have made his offer in good faith, many Ghanaians and Nigerians on social media have expressed extreme doubt over President Buhari's ability to follow-through with his offer.
YEN.com.gh put together a few reasons why people feel that President Buhari's promise - though, again, made in good faith - may be nothing but hot air.
In August of last year, President Mahammadu Buhari finally returned from the United Kingdom after spending over three months in the United Kingdom for medical reasons. This was the second time in 2017 alone that he had taken an extended vacation due to medical reasons.
Corruption Perception Index
As compared to Ghana , which recently ranked 81st out of 180, Nigeria ranked 148 out of 180. As far as many are concerned, President Buhari ought to concentrate on curbing corruption in Nigeria first, before he can offer Ghanaians any help.
Though the rate of violent crime seems to have spiked in Ghana since 2017, compared to that of cities like Lagos, crime rates in Ghanaian cities continue to look pretty low.
Prosecution of corruption case
Unlike President Akufo-Addo's Special Prosecutor office, very little has been done to establish an office with the specific mission to prosecute corruption cases in Nigerion. This, even though the Nigerian President has been in office for over two years.
