It is obvious that the only thing Ghanaians understand is oppression and force.

Had it not been for the military presence at the location this morning, they would still be crossing the road directly beneath the bridge.

Ghanaians have reacted to then tweet, as most of them did not understand why force was needed to make them use the very thing they asked for.
