Singer Sista Afia has said she sees nothing wrong with the push by some Ghanaians celebrities which convinced President Akufo-Addo to speak on the #EndSARS protest in Nigeria.
Some celebrities mounted pressure on Akufo-Addo to speak on the #EndSARS protest and the police brutality in Nigeria in his capacity as ECOWAS Chair when the situation was getting worse.
The call by these celebrities was intensified when Prez Akufo-Addo in the past had solidarized with George Floyd’s family and issued a statement on international disasters with the speed of the wind.
Therefore, the deafening silence on the #EndSARS protest in Nigeria was deserving of his message, which he did. Well, after speaking on the issue, some Nigerians have rather turned on Ghana’s president to castigate and criticize him for what they describe as dishonesty and disservice.
Following that the likes of Nana Aba Anamoah, Yvonne Nelson who were key in the push for President Akufo-Addo to speak on #EndSARS have come under severe fire. Netizens believe these celebrities set the president up for gross embarrassment thus must be hanged (used advisedly).
Following that, Sista Afia, who also added her voice to the earlier demand for the president to speak, has come out to say they did nothing wrong by asking the President to speak on the issue. She added that their collective effort helped in getting President Akufo-Addo to speak on the issue thus Ghanaians should not crucify them.
