Tweet Moves Ghanaians to Plan American Embassy Demonstration
Hundreds of Ghanaians will next week stage a peaceful protest march on behalf of government against the American Embassy in Ghana for launching an attack on a social media post by President John Dramani Mahama. The demonstrators are seeking to petition the American President, Barrack Obama, through the American Ambassador to Ghana, Gene A. Cretz, for an apology and action against the Embassy official responsible for the blunder. The march is jointly being organized by the Progressive Socialists Forum of Ghana and the New Politics Network (NPN) – an apolitical grouping. It is scheduled for Friday July 25, 2014 in Accra. “We are presenting a petition to the US President and his people via the Embassy to render an unqualified apology to the President and people of Ghana. We would request to know the position of the person they claim replied the President,” stated Ohenenana Obonti Krow, a social media communicator, who is at the forefront of organizing public support for the protest. The group will also request the Embassy to tell the world where the personnel who pushed the trigger works in the Embassy and demand that he be transferred from the Embassy since the attitude makes him or her a serious threat to the country’s national security. “I don’t support any political twist to this reckless action by the US Embassy, we must collectively stand-up against this imperialist’s manipulations and recklessness. We may have our differences and can continue our internal political banter, but never must we allow any foreign entity to dictate the pace of our political movement,” he told Spy News Agency in an interview. President John Mahama in his regular conversation with Ghanaians last week posted a tweet on his official tweeter handle assuring Ghanaians that the current economic difficulties will soon be over. - See more at: http://afkinsider.com/65453/ghanaians-plan-us-embassy-tweet-demonstration.
