Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has also commented on the siting of Twitter’s headquarter for Africa Operations in Ghana.
According to him, it is a big win, since more jobs will be coming into the country for the youth in the tech space.
In a tweet sighted by YEN.com.gh, he said “#TwitterGhana is a big win for Ghana. This means more jobs and opportunities for our youth in the Tech space.”
News broke that the microblogging site, Twitter on Monday April 12 had selected Ghana out of all the countries on the African continent to establish its African operations.
The Communications Minister Ursula Owusu Ekuful said the choice of Ghana as headquarters for its Africa operations is great news for Ghana's local and vibrant tech community.
She added “Ghana dey be!! #TwitterGhana. Yaaay!! Good things happen under Prez Nana ADDO!! Thank you,”: she said.
Meanwhile, 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.”
