The National Communication officer of the National Democratic Congress(NDC), Sammy Gyamfi has come under serious scrutiny for trying to attack the electoral commission through an act work.

In a cartoon he intended to use to criticise the electoral commission with respect to the voters register, the NDC communicator decided to use an at work that depicted how America's George Floyd died.

His depiction of Floyds death in the art work to ridicule the Electoral Commission did not go well with Ghanaians as most people felt it was out of place for a whole party's communication officer to play with such an insensitive issue that has sparked global controversy.

Inasmuch as people wanted to draw his attention to how wrong he was to have shared such a cartoon, he jumped to his own defense saying the cartoon was not intended to mock the painful exit of Floyd or seek political mischief.

According to him, the EC led by Jean Mensah was seeking to disenfranchise eligible voters through a xenophobic voters register

Even with his explanation, Ghanaians will have none of it since they still believe it was not right to do that.

Eli said the NDC communicator is simply not wise.

Ghanaian rapper and musician, Joey B who also did not side with him, just advised him to delete it.

King of Accra believes his first sentence just mocks the death of Floyd and advised him to take it down and apologise.
