The CEO of Twitter, Jack, said he has no plans to relocate to Ghana anytime soon as claimed by Ursula Owusu, Ghana’s Minister for Communications.
Jack was responding to a post on Twitter that he was relocating to Ghana in June to stay while Twitter opens its Africa headquarters in Accra.
However, he made it clear that he is not relocating to Ghana anytime soon because that is not in his plans.
He added that that plan may come off at some point in life.
Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, the Minister of Communications and Digitisation had claimed in an interview on Asaase Radio that Jack was coming over to live for at least 6 months.
According to her, Jack would be based in Accra while vising other African countries, while expressing the hope that Jack's friends would come with him to find why he chose Accra.
However, from Jack’s comments, that is not going to happen anytime soon.
Fans have reacted to Jack's comment.
Mr. Situation, for instance, wrote in the Akan language that Ursula rushes too much:
Hopium wondered why Ursula Owusu would talk about this when Jack has not confirmed anything to her:
Black wondered if Jack was angry with Ghana:
The announcement by Twitter that it has set up its African Headquarters in Ghana was well-received by Ghanaians on social media.
In a statement, Twitter revealed it is "in line with [its] growth strategy... to truly serve the public conversation, we must be more immersed in the rich and vibrant communities that drive the conversations taking place every day across the African continent."
Whilst Ghanaians were excited generally about the news, some Nigerians were not happy, expressing their frustration at their government for losing out on the chance to be the country to host the American company.
