The ‘clash’ in the USA ahead of Nana Addo’s visit to the White House: What everyone needs to know

On Thursday, 23 September 2021, The President of Ghana, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo; was in the United States of America to hold bilateral talks with the Vice President Kamala Harris of the United States of America. The talks were aimed at strengthening the bonds of friendship and ties of co-operation between our two nations.

Ahead of President Nana Addo’s arrival, a large number of Anti-government Ghanaians protesters, (living in the United States of America) gathered outside the White House…holding many placards with different inscriptions; including… fix the country, fix Ghana and many more. The group, who look very angry… were also busy chanting songs against President Nana Addo and his government.

They sang Akan songs like; “akokra bone ee, akokra bone ee, wosi wobeshi Ghana a… shi Ghana na yen shwe” meaning the bad old man…the bad old man, if you plan to burn Ghana….then burn it let’s see.

Coming against these protesters, were another group of Ghanaians (supporters of the Nana Addo’s Government),who also came as a counter, to shower praise to the Nana Addo’s Government; citing interventions like food and job program, the free education in the country, and many more. 

The Nana Addo’s fans also met him with placards, and with praises; they showed their gratitude to him, for the introduction of the free Senior High education, the School feeding programme, the planting for food and jobs, the creation of the Oti Region, the introduction of the student’s loan trust fund, and many more.

Whiles the angry protesters were busy ‘throwing words’ on the President and his convoy, the supporters of the President were also giving a counter attack on the protesters; but for the timely intervention of the New York security, the exchange would have led into a serious clash in front of the American’s White House.

The two groups had each come out to support their position and ended up getting into arguments and trading heavy insults on each other in both Ga and Twi language. 

The reason for the clash.

Digesting into the cause of the clash, some fix the country campaigners have claimed that, because president Nana Addo and his convoy, were met with disgrace in Germany; by some Ghanaians protesters, the Nana Addo’s government…this time decided to bring people from Ghana to the United States, paid them to come and shower fake praises on Nana Addo for his good governance. According to the claims, Hopeson Adorye and Ernest Owuasu Bempah are the men behind it.

These are claims…what do you think; do you believe the Nana Addo’s government really sponsored people from Ghana to the U.S, to meet the President with fake praises?
