Immediately after Twitter Ceo Jack Dorsey tweeted Ghana as the selected country for Twitter Africa headquarters, Loquacious Nigerians besieged his tweet to question why Nigeria wasn’t selected but little Ghana.
Twitter has specified why Ghana was selected, “as a champion for democracy, Ghana is a supporter of free speech, online freedom, and the open internet, of Which Twitter is also an advocate”. Yet many Nigerians weren’t happy.
Just last year, Nigeria Business man and former presidential aspirant Adamu Garba filled $1B lawsuit against Jack Dorsey for endorsing the #ENDSARS protest. Garba requested that “an order be issued to stop operations of Twitter in any part of the territory of the federal state of Nigeria”
Ghana is undeniable the most digitized economy in west africa.
Both countries share similar culture and are seen as the two sister Nations despite not sharing land or sea border.
A win for Ghana is equally a win for Nigeria. Let’s celebrate this together!.
