President Akufo-Addo chairs President Buhari’s books launch in Nigeria

President of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa-Akufo-Addo on Friday, May 19, 2023, at the request of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, His Excellency Muhammadu Buhari, chaired the launch of two biographies.

The biographies were “State of Repair – How Muhammadu Buhari tried to Change Nigeria for good” by Anthony Goldman, and “The Legacy of Muhammadu Buhari” by Senator Abu Ibrahim, in Abuja, Nigeria.

President Akufo-Addo said as leaders, “We all have our high and low moments, but I have no doubt that posterity will be kind to Muhammadu Buhari. West Africa, Africa, and, indeed, the world will miss his leadership – the leadership of the military ruler turned consummate democrat, who was extremely solicitous of Nigeria and Africa’s interest, and who sought principle in all decisions which he took.”

He congratulated the Englishman, Anthony Goldman, and the Nigerian, Senator Abu Ibrahim, for their industry and scholarship.

 And to the many other authors, poets and playwrights on the continent, he urged them to tell the African story truthfully and with flair, and to give praise where it has been earned, and criticism where it is deserved.
