Cousin of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, Gabby Otchere Darko, has sent a strong message to his critics on social media. Known as the de-facto prime minister on social media, Gabby Otchere Darko is usually the first to announce the ruling government's decision mainly because he is in the circle of decision makers in the country.
For instance, with the issue of the IMF bailout, Gabby Otchere Darko was first to announce the amount realized from the e-levy so far plus the possibility of the government, going to the IMF. This tweet from him made a lot Ghanaians blast and insult him, especially when he was included to the people who criticized Mahama. Today, when asked why he still tweets despite the numbers of insults he receives daily, this was his response.
"I am just a social commentator on Twitter who only shares his idea when he hears or sees something. Someone asked me a question that why do I still tweet despite the number of insults I receive daily. You see I have over 400000 followers on Twitter. And when I tweet, I will have at least 70 to 90 people comment. And 90 percent of them insult me.
"The truth is that I do not look at those who insult me. I look at those who like what I tweet and those who retweet it and those who will just see it and not read it. I will be happy to know that at least my words have gotten to them", Gabby explained on Asaase Radio.
