Some Ghanaians are unhappy with the responses of some Nigerians to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s comment on the #EndSARS protests in Nigeria.
Ghanaians have supported Nigerians on social media since the protests against police brutality in Nigeria started.
A lot of them called on President Akufo-Addo, who is also the Chairman of ECOWAS, to speak on the protests after African leaders including the President of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari, were silent on the issue.
President Akufo-Addo finally issued a statement on the issue on Wednesday, October 21, 2020.
However, President Akufo-Addo’s statement on the #EndSARS protests were met with insults and disappointment from some Nigerians on social media.
The reaction to Ghana’s President by some Nigerians did not sit well with some Ghanaians who have indicated that they are no longer joining the online protest to support Nigerians in their fight against police brutality in their country.
But, other Ghanaians have condemned the above tweets and have advised Ghanaians to continue to support Nigerians and ignore the negative comments of some Nigerians made about President Akufo-Addo.
Read below some of the tweets.
I join all well-meaning persons in calling for calm, and the use of dialogue in resolving the #EndSARS impasse in Nigeria. I have spoken with President Buhari, who is committed to this end, and has begun the processes that will lead to reform. 1/2

One thing about Ghanaians is we hate being disrespected, and disrespect to our our president means disrespect to us.

With regards to the issue of Nigerians insulting our president, I think I've seen only a few unpleasant comments…Rather unfortunate tbh, but to tell other Ghanaians to stop tweeting #EndSARS just because of someone's narrow mindedness is really out of place!!

If the online protest you were doing it genuinely for the sake of humanity, a few Nigerians insulting Nana Addo no fit be reason to discourage you now unoe.

So, a minor part of a whole nation has insulted our President, very wrong. But ask yourself why you got involved in the first place. Was it just because you wanted to join a trend? Or because you really stood for justice and for humanity? Those who have died didn't insult my

Remember there are ghanaians in Nigeria so please don't let the insults from the Nigerians destruct you from pushing the agenda. Humanity before everything please.
