The Executive Director of the Alliance for Social Equity and Public Accountability (ASEPA), Mensah Thompson has questioned the audacity with which award-winning musician Michael Owusu Addo, popularly known as Sarkodie is asking Sammy Gyamfi to pull down his tweet on George Floyd.
Sammy Gyamfi, Communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in a post on his Facebook page uploaded a cartoon artwork depicting President Nana Addo and Electoral Commission Chair Jean-Mensah pinning down an individual described as the ‘Voter’ just like what led to the death of George Floyd in the United States of America.
Reacting to that artwork, Sarkodie lashed out at the NDC firebrand indicating that the post is wrong and should be pulled down.
“Naa my brother we all go wrong sometimes…I will believe your intention wasn’t to joke with this serious n very sensitive issues, but you still wrong just do what’s right…. Retract n take it down”.
Meanwhile, Sammy Gyamfi in defense of his post has explained that the cartoon doesn’t mock the painful xenophobic murder of George Floyd or seek to exploit same for political capital in any way but rather it is to stress on the evil attempt by the EC to disenfranchise millions of eligible voters through a xenophobic voter register.
