The government of Ghana has put together a commemorative ceremony for George Floyd who was murdered coldly by a police officer on the streets of Minneapolis in the United States.
His death has become a global concern in the midst of the Coronavirus as protests are being mounted home and abroad to demand justice not only for his family but also for the Black race.
On the back of that, the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture in collaboration with the Ghana Tourism Authority and the Office of Diaspora Affairs and other stakeholders have held a ceremony at the W.E.B Du Bois Centre in Accra to join many across the globe to mourn the sudden passing of Geroge Floyd.
A video shared by Saddick Adams on Twitter shows a rather emotional scene of people clad in red and black with their face masks on as they sing dirges in honour of the black race and George Floyd.
Many have spoken against the essence of the ceremony since Ghana has numerous challenges that are begging for equal resources and attention.
