Nigerian Politician Who Sued Twitter Worried Ghana Picked For Africa HQ

Published

on

Jack Dorsey, Twitter CEO on Monday, April 12, announced that the microblogging and social networking firm had picked Ghana as its centre of operations in Africa.

The news apparently has not gone down well with some Nigerians who are split on why the social media giant will pick Ghana ahead of Nigeria.

For some of them, it is a case of the Muhammadu Buhari government’s bad policies and actions and that it served Nigeria right, but others are concerned that with Nigeria’s superior Twitter population, why would Twitter have pivoted to Ghana to rather establish its continental operations.

One such ‘concerned’ Nigerian is Adamu Garba II, a Nigerian politician on record to have sued Twitter over its supposed role in triggering the #EndSARS protests that roiled the country last year.

Adamu, a failed presidential aspirant, incidentally took to Twitter to express his displeasure but to also compare Ghana to Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial capital.

His post read: “I don’t know what is that buzz about Ghana? a low country less than the size of Lagos.

“Ghana have roughly 3 million Twitter users, Nigerians have 12 million. Was it Buhari the President when Obama shunned Nigeria for Ghana? These guys don’t rate you, accept it for your peace.

“They told you to stay and build your country, you insult, denigrated Nigeria and compare us with very small countries like Ghana.

“You see, every power is afraid of the sleeping giant Nigeria to wake up. Nigeria is the only country with prospects to be African version of China.”

As expected, he drew support and criticism for his post with a sizeable number of Ghanaians camping under his tweet with picture and video trolls.

Below are a number of reactions:

Published

Reports coming in from the famous Accra Timber markets suggest some part of the place is on fire and some personnel from the Ghana Fire Service went to the venue without water.

As at now, its not known what might have caused the fire at the market which mostly trades in ‘wood’ by an eye witness account reveals people from the market called the Ghana National Fire Service and reported to them about some place of the market burning in flames.

They say the Fire Service responded to the call swiftly and upon arriving at the place, told the people and the shop owners around that they don’t have water in their truck to quench off the fire which was spreading to other areas of the market.

This left the people and the shop owners to result in a different method to try and quench off the fire and prevent it from spreading to other shops around.

Since the news hit media circles Ghanaians are reacting to it stating Fire Service don’t have water to quench off fire but yet still, the Ghana Police Service yesterday filled their trucks with hot water ready to spray it on #FixTheCountry protestors.

Check out the video of some parts of the market burning and the some comments from the public;

Israel says that at least 15 of the dead were militants, adding that six Israeli civilians had been wounded after Hamas fired more than 200 rockets.


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has now warned that the fighting could ‘continue for some time,’ claiming that Hamas had ‘crossed a red line’ by launching rockets at Israel.’z


Christians revere Jerusalem as the place where they believe that Jesus preached, died and was resurrected while the Palestinians want the eastern section of Jerusalem as a capital of a future state.


Israel sees all of Jerusalem as its eternal and indivisible capital and till this day Israel’s annexation of East Jerusalem is unrecognized internationally.
