Medikal has responded to opinions shared by Yvonne Nelson over Nana Addo’s long silence on the EndSARS protest.
The President of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo, said President Muhammadu Buhari has begun the processes that will lead to police reforms, as he calls for calm and dialogue to resolve the issues surrounding reported cases of chaos related to the #EndSARS protests.
Akufo-Addo disclosed this in a statement on Wednesday evening, which comes a day after peaceful protesters were allegedly shot at by the Nigerian military at the Lekki toll gate holdout.
He added that the use of violence by security agents is not a solution and expresses his condolences.
“Violence, be it on the part of the police or protesters, cannot be the solution. To the families who have lost their loved ones, I express my sincere condolences, and I wish the injured a speedy recovery,” he added.
Akufo-Addo joined other global leaders like former US Presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, who also called on President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration and the Nigerian Army to stop the killing of young protesters in the country.
However, before the Ghanaian President spoke about the EndSARS brutality in Nigeria, Yvonne Nelson among other social media users criticized him for keeping mute on the matter.
Medikal sees her comment from another angle.
“Our president must show leadership on this matter else he becomes complicit in the senseless killing of innocent and defenseless protesters @NAkufoAddo 🇳🇬💔”
Responding to a tweet of a fan that Yvonne Nelson shared to justify why she thinks the Ghanaian president must speak on the issue, Medikal said: “The Ghanaian president ein silence on social media no de mean say he is doing nothing behind closed doors.”
Quoting the actress’ tweet with his reply, he added that “How many times wonna President address the nation during COVID/ lockdown period in Ghana ? Severally ! don’t blame Nana for Buhari’s incompetence !”.
His since tweet since went viral, gathering close to 2000 retweets with hundreds of fans who either agreed or disagreed with him.
