Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
YEN.com.gh is in possession of a video in which a policeman is seen standing at the Madina Zongo junction footbridge with a cane.
The road user who recorded the video, @love_4_sale, revealed that he saw adults being forced to use the footbridge.
The police officer achieved this with the help of the cane he held in his hand.
In the video, he is seen directing pedestrians to refrain from walking across the road and use the bridge instead.
A woman who succeeds in reaching the other side of the road is asked to return to the side from which she came and use the footbridge instead.
Social media users have reacted in different ways to the video since it went viral:
@Afua_do noted that people complained when there was no footbridge but are refusing to use it now.
@ghcounty, however, argued that the footbridge is a disaster.
@kweku_OGD believes the cane is necessary.
@dom155rich1 noted that the engineers need to ask themselves serious questions.
@moses_mq added that people even challenge others for doing the right thing.
In other news, YEN.com.gh has learned that a Gold Coast lawyer, William Esuman-Gwira Sekyi, also known as Kobina Sekyi, never wore European clothes.
Sekyi, who was a nationalist, philosopher, lawyer and writer, was born on November 1, 1892, in Cape Coast.
He was the son of John Gladstone Sackey, who was once a headmaster of Mfantsipim and Wilhelmina Pietersen.
Per a report by ghanamuseum.com, Sekyi was educated at Mfantsipim just like his father and then headed to the University of London to study Philosophy.
Upon his return, he ventured into politics and law and was soon elected as the president of the Aborigines’ Rights Protection Society.
One of his books, The Blinkards, ridiculed the acceptance by a colonized society of the attitudes of the colonizers.
