The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration has said that Ghana has not demanded the suspension of Chad from the African Union (AU).

The Ministry’s statement follows a social media publication, which is attributed to the Radio France Internationale (RFI,) stating that Ghana is demanding the suspension of Chad from the African Union due to the recent military coup d’etat.

This was said in a statement by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration of Ghana on 30 April 2021.

“The ministry wishes to state unequivocally that the government of Ghana has not made 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 outing out publications which do not inure to good relations between sisterly African countries,” the statement noted.
