Nigerians are reacting on Twitter after the social networking service announced its African headquarters will be located in Ghana. 


Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey made the announcement in a tweet on Monday afternoon, April 12. 

 

“Twitter is now present on the continent. Thank you Ghana and Nana Akufo-Addo”

 

 

President Nana  Akufo- Addo in his response, welcomed the news and revealed that he held a virtual meeting with Jack on April 7, 


The choice of Ghana as HQ for Twitter’s Africa operations is EXCELLENT news. Gov’t and Ghanaians welcome very much this announcement and the confidence reposed in our country. 1#TwitterInGhana
 #TwitterGhana


As I indicated to @Jack in our virtual meeting of 7th April 2021, this is the start of a beautiful partnership between Twitter and Ghana, which is critical for the dev’t of Ghana’s hugely important tech sector. #TwitterInGhana#TwitterGhana


These are exciting times to be in, and to do business in Ghana. 


In a statement, Twitter gave its reasons why it chose Ghana to host Africa’s Head Quarters.


“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. Furthermore, Ghana’s recent appointment to host The Secretariat of the African Continental Free Trade Area aligns with our overarching goal to establish a presence in the region that will support our efforts to improve and tailor our service across Africa.”

 

 

However, Nigerians have taken to Twitter to express their views over the news. 


While some were pleased with the new development, others mocked the Nigerian government after Twitter hailed Ghana for being a "supporter of free speech, online freedom, and the Open Internet," while explaining why Ghana was picked as its African headquarters. 

 

Here are some reactions below. 

 

 

 


Your Deputy Jesus cannot forgive - Herbalist, Ezenwanyi Iyeri Oba slams Prophet Odumeje and Actress Rita Edochie (video)

 

Your Deputy Jesus cannot forgive - Herbalist, Ezenwanyi Iyeri Oba slams Prophet  Odumeje and Actress Rita Edochie (video)

Herbalist Ezenwanyi Iyeri Oba has slammed Prophet Chukwuemeka Odumeje and Actress Rita Edochie for refusing to forgive comedienne, Mercy Cynthia Ginikachukwu better known by her stage name, Ada Jesus. 

 

Recall that while Prophet Chukwuemeka Odumeje and Actress Rita Edochie refused to forgive  Ada Jesus even after she was brought to the Anambra-based Pastor’s church to beg for forgiveness over some of her utterances against them (Odumeje and Rita) in the past, a native doctor, Chi Marine forgave Ada Jesus over degoratory remarks she made about him. 

 

Rita later took to Instagram to release another video after she said she received numerous calls from people asking her to forgive the 23-year-old comedienne. She said she's glad that she has been vindicated, adding that she wants to let those concerned know that she has forgiven the social media comedienne.

 

Reacting to the whole situation, Ezenwanyi Iyeri Oba stated that those who play "Deputy Jesus" have refused to forgive, while Chi Marine who everyone thinks is a devil has shown that he has a ''pure heart.''

 

Ezenwanyi Iyeri Oba accused Odumeje of being heartless with his refusal to forgive the comedienne who lied helplessly on his church’s altar to beg for forgiveness after being left incapacitated by an ailment.

 

The herbalist also prayed that all the gods in Igbo land renews the health of Ada Jesus so she can look Prophet Odumeje and Rita Edochie in the eye to show them they can’t give or take any life.

Virginia police officer sacked for pepper-spraying black Lieutenant

 

Virginia police officer sacked for pepper-spraying black Lieutenant

Officer Joe Gutierrez who was one of the Virginia police officers that held a Black Army officer at gunpoint, handcuffed him and doused him with pepper spray during an illegal traffic stop has been fired. 

 

LIB reported earlier that two officers from the town of Windsor drew their guns, pointing them at US Army second lieutenant Caron Nazario and used a slang term to suggest he was facing execution.

 

Town authorities said in a statement they were joining calls from election officials, including Governor Ralph Northam to request an investigation by Virginia State Police into the December 2020 encounter.

 

Following an internal investigation, the town said that Gutierrez did not follow department policy. They did not provide any further information on the other officer involved in the incident, Daniel Crocker, but said the department is requiring additional training.

 

The town said; 

 

"The Town of Windsor prides itself in its small-town charm and the community-wide respect of its Police Department. 

"Due to this, we are saddened for events like this to cast our community in a negative light.  Rather than deflect criticism, we have addressed these matters with our personnel administratively, we are reaching out to community stakeholders to engage in dialogue, and commit ourselves to additional discussions in the future.

"At the conclusion of this investigation, it was determined that Windsor Police Department policy was not followed. This resulted in disciplinary action, and department-wide requirements for additional training were implemented beginning in January and continue up to the present. Since that time, Officer Gutierrez was also terminated from his employment."

 

Nazario who released without being charged, has accused the officers of using excessive force, illegally searching his car and violating his constitutional rights. 

 

His attorney, Jonathan Arthur said; 

 

"To unbuckle his seatbelt, to do anything, any misstep — he was afraid that they were going to kill him.

"What prompted him to file is the need to stop this conduct. The need to hold these two officers accountable and make sure they cannot do it again."

 

Virginia Governor Ralph Northam called the incident "disturbing" and said on Sunday April 11 that he is directing the state police to conduct an independent investigation.
