In reaction to the good news, a former communications minister under the erstwhile Mahama administration, Dr. Edward Omane Boamah has suggested that Twitter’s presence in Ghana is because of Mahama.
According to him, the decision of the social media network to establish its Africa headquarters in Ghana is as a result of some investments made by the John Mahama government.
Omane Boamah said the Mahama administration made massive investments in both fixed & wireless broadband services and delivered 4G on a wider scale.
He wrote, “Glad Twitter selected Ghana to host its Africa operations. This is benefit from investments in both fixed & wireless broadband. Also glad we delivered 4G on a wider scale to Ghanaians & extended optic fiber across the country including rural areas. Data is the currency for the future. Data will generate more jobs.”
Reacting to the news about Twitter's presence in Ghana, President Akufo-Addo described the decision to make Ghana its operations hub in Africa as “excellent news.”
According to Gyamfi who is the NDC’s National Communications Director, the former president will be the flagbearer “by hook or crook.”
Gyamfi disclosed this while addressing students at the University of Cape Coast as filed by Ghanaweb.
President Akufo-Addo defeated the former president in the 2020 election to secure another four-year term. He collected 51.302% of the votes cast against the latter’s 47.359%
