Popular Ghanaian actresses Lydia Forson and Kafui Danku, have called out all Ghanaian celebs who have not spoken about the #EndSARS protests going on in Nigeria.
The duo took to their social media handles and indicated that they felt it was not right and very insensitive for people to post anything apart from what was currently happening in Nigeria on their platforms.
They indicated that they were at a loss as to why the many celebs in the country who had the star power were choosing to remain silent on the matter.
Kafui Danku for one indicated that she could not believe that some celebs were posting "normal videos, images and dancing videos" instead of using the platforms to throw more light on the "gruesome and barbaric act" going on.
Lydia Forson also indicated that "it did not feel right to post anything that isn't about what's happening in Nigeria today".
She added that Nigerians were like brothers and sisters to Ghanaians and saw the need not to post any other thing as the right way to go.
Kafui Danku urged her colleagues to just make a post to support their colleagues and friends in Nigeria.
Lydia Forson also captioned her post:
"In the end lives we’re lost and this moment is a major turning point in Nigeria’s history.
People are upset, confused and what was to be a peaceful protest has now escalated into something else because of the events of last night.
If you can’t do anything else, send thoughts, prayers and positive energy to the people of Nigeria, in hopes that they will be able to figure this out.
That’s all that should matter."
Meanwhile, President Akufo-Addo has finally spoken about the widespread tensions and atrocities in Nigeria in relation to #EndSARS protests in the West African state.
Akufo-Addo took to Twitter to issue a statement about the happenings in Nigeria and added that he had spoken to the Nigerian leader.
The leader of Ghana added that he did not ascribe to violence and he was of the conviction that it was not the solution to the current problem.
