Ghana Is Champion Of Democracy, Twitter Replies FG, Nigerians

Tech giant, micro-blogging site and leading social networking site, Twitter, has replied to criticism by Nigerians, including politicians in the ruling All Progressive Congress, APC, led Federal government, that it chose Ghana against Nigeria, because Ghana is champion of democracy.

 

Twitter said Ghana, a country in West Africa like Nigeria, but small in population when compared to Nigeria’s over 200 million population, is not only African Champion of democracy, but also “is a supporter of free speech, online freedom, and the Open Internet, of which Twitter is also an advocate.”

 

Twitter disclosed this in a post by Kayvon Beykpour and Uche Adegbite, Product Lead, Twitter and Co-Founder, Periscope and Director, Product Management, Global Markets, respectively.

 

“Twitter’s mission is to serve the public conversation, and it’s essential, for the world and for Twitter, to increase the number of people who feel comfortable participating in it. To do this, we need to make it easier for everyone to join in and provide more relevant experiences for people across the world.

 

“Today, in line with our growth strategy, we’re excited to announce that we are now actively building a team in Ghana. To truly serve the public conversation, we must be more immersed in the rich and vibrant communities that drive the conversations taking place every day across the African continent.

“As a champion for democracy, Ghana is a supporter of free speech, online freedom, and the Open Internet, of which Twitter is also an advocate. Furthermore, Ghana’s recent appointment to host The Secretariat of the African Continental Free Trade Area aligns with our overarching goal to establish a presence in the region that will support our efforts to improve and tailor our service across Africa.

 

“Whenever we enter new markets, we work hard to ensure that we are not just investing in the talent that we hire, but also investing in local communities and the social fabric that supports them. We have already laid foundations through partnerships with Amref Health Africa in Kenya, Afrochella in Ghana, Mentally Aware Nigeria Initiative (MANI) in Nigeria, and The HackLab Foundation in Ghana. As part of our long-term commitment to the region, we’ll continue to explore compelling ways we can use the positive power of Twitter to strengthen our communities through employee engagement, platform activation, and corporate giving,” twitter said.

 

According to statista.com, in 2020 alone, the number of social media users in Nigeria reached roughly 28 million.

 

Of this figure, 61.4 per cent have active Twitter handles.

 

However, in Ghana, it said as of January 2021, Ghana registered approximately eight million active social media users, up from six million in 2019.

 

And of this figure, only 28.78 per cent are registered on Twitter.

Tech Giant and one of the leading social networking site in the world, Twitter, has settled in Ghana as its official African headquarter, amidst outrages.

 

Twitter co-founder, Jack Dorsey, announcing the decision on Monday, tweeted, “Twitter is now present on the continent. Thank you Ghana and President Nana Akufo-Addo,”

 

Responding, Ghana’s President thanked Twitter for its decision, adding that he had met with Dorsey and he was confident the move would be the beginning of new things.

 

Akufo-Addo tweeted, “The choice of Ghana as HQ for Twitter’s Africa operations is excellent news. The government and Ghanaians welcome very much this announcement and the confidence reposed in our country.

 

“As I indicated in our virtual meeting of April 7, 2021, this is the start of a beautiful partnership between Twitter and Ghana, which is critical for the development of Ghana’s hugely important tech sector. These are exciting times to be in, and to do business in Ghana.”

 

Nigerians were however, unhappy with the decision of Twitter to leave Nigeria which has its highest users in Africa to site its headquarter in Ghana to the neglect of Nigeria.

 

Though, most of the tweets of Nigerians were in anger to the Federal government led by President Muhammadu Buhari, who they accused that his undemocratic policies and human rights records were responsible for Twitter to snub Nigeria for Ghana.

Oke Umurhohwo tweeted, “Another Big L for Nigeria who despite having the biggest active social media users, we got over looked for Ghana. This is obviously because of the anti-business policies of APC and Buhari. Shameful!”

 

@opeyemifolarin1 tweeted, “Leadership is everything. Democracy is thriving in Ghana and it’s evident in the peace and stability witnessed in the country and it has contributed significantly to the productivity level and boosting investors’ confidence in Ghana economy.”

 

@ananabannamdi tweeted, “Largely based on textbook definition Nigeria is the largest economy in Africa and probably the largest social media engaging ecosystem in Africa as well. Sadly, the nature of political hijacking, state capture, bad governance and more decadence has made us chop another “L” again!”

 

“But Jack, Nigeria has one of the biggest Twitter presence in Africa. Don’t worry, FG will make ease of doing business much better,” @Morris_Monye tweeted.
