If Twitter with a market valuation of a meager $56 Billion means Ghana with ordinary office is the giant in west Africa, then what is Nigeria with Google, a $1.3 Trillion valuation company and the largest TECH conglomerate in the world with their main HUB in Africa right here in Lagos Nigeria?

One thing I noticed is the fact that the only thing driving you people's ignorant nonsense is hatred, bitterness, tribalism, bigotry and anti-Nigerian views, not common sense, not facts or anything sane and rational.'

Intimidation and threat


In conversations with my Ghanaian colleagues, some expressed fear of reporting on certain issues and groups. Others said they have had to overlook certain stories or seek permission from state agencies.


Fear of intimidation or physical harm informs which stories they tell. More broadly, it has affected their capacity to do their work and provide the public with reliable information.



Recalling an incident with a story about the Ghana Armed Forces, they continued: “Sources in the army called to warn me of possible violent attacks against me if I broke the story.

Stifled sources

Journalists are not the only group who censor themselves due to the threat of violence, harassment or intimidation

Experts, business owners, and public sector workers such as teachers, nurses, and university lecturers often decline to speak to journalists for fear of victimization and possible job loss. Business owners and other private sector people have lost contracts as a result of speaking to the press, while public sector workers face transfers and other sanctions.

Covert interference

In addition to the challenges listed above, there are other forms of government interference that undermine media freedom. The constitution bars governments from interfering with the work of the media, but that has not stopped successive Ghanaian governments from using covert tools.

The NPP government appears to have taken oppressive tactics up a notch with the closure of opposition radio stations for alleged “non-payment of taxes”. The government has been accused of acquiring surveillance equipment that some fear may be used to hack electronic gadgets belonging to journalists.

Poor Ghana, Nigerian news media fair better than these scared and intimidated press people in Ghana.

Re: Twitter: Why We Chose Ghana Over Nigeria, Others by plaindealer: 3:57pm On Apr 14, 2021

For example, Ghanaians still don’t know what motivated the government to cancel a power agreement which in turn lost the country a $190 million US government grant.

The inability of journalists to verify leaked documents and the unwillingness of some media companies to use verifiable information meant this story, like many scandals, was reduced to political entertainment.

https://reutersinstitute.politics.ox.ac.uk/how-free-ghanas-media


Mogbe, $190 Million loss, that's N723 Billion.

Because of lack of press freedom, poor Ghana people are still in the dark and clueless about how they lost N723 Billion.

If na Nigeria, heaven go break..

Intercity highways after dark due to crime.
Areas near the northern border in the Upper East and Upper West regions due to crime.
Parts of the Bono East, Bono, Savannah, Northern, North East, and Upper East regions due to civil unrest.

Re: Twitter: Why We Chose Ghana Over Nigeria, Others by plaindealer: 4:06pm On Apr 14, 2021
Urban Areas – Exercise Increased Caution

Violent crime, such as street mugging, is more frequent in urban areas as compared to their surrounding suburbs. These crimes are also more prevalent at night and in isolated locations.


The U.S. government has limited ability to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens. Local police may lack the resources to respond effectively to more serious crimes.

Intercity Highways After Dark – Exercise Increased Caution

Armed assaults on private vehicles and public transports occur more frequently after dark, often by criminal elements using blockades to slow down and restrict movement of vehicles.

This is Flutterwave, this FINTECH in Nigeria alone raised more TECH money in one month than South Africa received in the whole of 2020.

This is Nigeria, be proud of your own country and stop putting cou ntries that are below you above you, raise your shoulder because you are better.

Re: Twitter: Why We Chose Ghana Over Nigeria, Others by plaindealer: 5:23pm On Apr 14, 2021
They hired more Nigerians, they are feeding more Nigerians than Twitter office space in Ghana with 11 people that translate to nothing.

Low self-esteem and inferiority complex people are always thinking countries that are beneath them are better.

Africa has four technology startups worth $1 billion (unicorns).

Nigerian payment processing company, InterSwitch.

Ecommerce giant, Jumia.

Egyptian electronic payment company, Fawry.

Nigerian payment company, Flutterwave.


There are 4 huge TECH startups in Africa with Unicon status, 3 out of them are Nigeria, that's nearly 100%.

We remain the big TECH GIANT in Africa.

What I don't get is, with all the ignorant and doom and gloom nonsense these inferiority complex people keep shouting, why is Nigeria dominating the TECH space in Africa.

Why are we generating more TECH investments than other countries?

Why are the 3 out of 4 Unicom TECH startups in Africa right here in Nigeria?

How come we collected more TECH investment money in one month this year than we collected in the whole of 2020 and even more than SA collected last year??


Why?

The real tech competition in Africa is mainly among SA, Egypt, Kenya and Nigeria. So if twitter was looking for what you are saying they would have chosen among these countries but they didn't.

Twitter has even explained why they picked ghana, its bcoz its more democratic. its that simple. Twitter is not like facebook or insta..etc... Through twitter officers, ministers, presidents, entire governments have been brought down ... So twitter wanted to pick a country where they are sure the govt wont want to silence them once ppl start turning on their ownn govt through hashtags

You are wrong, especially if as you just asserted that twitter-based their decision on being more democratic which is BS, I already posted articles by the US government and media practitioners in Ghana stating the opposite.

Twitter can dance around and offer whatever narratives suit twitter, but the facts on the ground remain the same and in some cases worse than Nigeria.

Twitter knowing for a fact that more powerful TECH giants and conglomerates like Google, Facebook, and Microsoft are already established in Nigeria with a huge headstart and presence so they settled for Gnana to aoid facing and competing with Google, Facebook, and Microsoft.


Of what relevance is Twitter renting office space in Ghana to Nigeria? Of what relevance? We remain the BIG TECH GIANT in the whole of Africa.

Go and read Twitter's double talk press release.

Twitter is renting an office in Ghana and hiring 11 small people to work from home and their main objective is Nigeria and the Nigerian marketplace.

Whatever Twitter is doing in Ghana means economic/GDP boost in Nigeria and further solidification of our leade and dominance.

Ghana is not even anywhere near us or even 20 spaces near us when it comes to TECH.

Our TECH space in Nigeria is already saturated with the major players, our TECH companies collected 17% of TECH funding in the whole of Africa.

3 out of the 4 Unicon startups in Africa are here in Nigeria, not in SA, not in Kenya and definitely not in Ghana, but here in Nigeria so what is Twitter renting an office in Ghana going to do to us?

Let's get real abeg..
