Ghanaians have launched a stiff social media war against Chief Dele Momodu, a personal friend to former President Mahama over his allegation that lights are going off in Ghana.
His allegation is motivated by his idea that the governing party is turning lights off in order to carry out with purported vote-rigging tactics.
In a tweet, the Nigerian businessman and journalist said he has received reports from Ghana that the lights are going off in a subtle attempt to suggest that the counting of the ballot is being tempered with.
This assertion did not go down well with Ghanaians who have reacted sharply to Dele Momodu’s tweet.
@Martindebresu replied: The president @NAkufoAddo is the only culprit here. He has asked the authorities to turn off lights so that his party hoodlums can try to rig the elections, but they will fail.
@WorkWithSimpey: You’re a grown man.. respect yourself.
@Queenpriscil replied: Please don’t come and fuel any biased analysis in our country to create tension, I’m in Ghana and I have lights. Yes your friends party is loosing, and it’s obvious you want to help him peddle falsehood. The Battle is still the Lords #ghanaelections2020 #NanaIsTheRightChoice

Don’t try to initiate any stupid form of violence ok? You can’t sit in the comfort of your country and try to fuel any unnecessary tension in mine. Lights are going off where? According to which reports? You seem educated, act as such. https://t.co/8FrVgSgEPI

If @DeleMomodu considers reports of "lights are going off in many parts of Ghana" as newsworthy, I wonder what he would say about his home country, Nigeria, where lights seldom come on in most parts of the country. I am using candle lights to type this tweet.#EndSarsNow https://t.co/Kzjf8Jcj9H
