News broke out on June 5 that the Ministry of Tourism, Art and culture is organizing a ceremony in the memory of George Floyd. They move didn’t go down well with social media users who condemned it.

Reacting to the news, A Plus wrote in an Instagram post: “Government of Ghana is holding a ceremony in honor of George Floyd but the government has not been able to tell us why police shot and killed 7 unarmed Zongo boys in Kumasi and what has become of the investigation because Zongo lives don’t matter”.

“3 girls went missing in Takoradi but we didn’t hold a ceremony to honor them because Takoradi lives don’t matter. An unarmed man was shot and killed at Ashaiman during the lockdown but Ashaiman live don’t matter”.

“70 Ghanaians died in one accident at Kintampo. We didn’t hold an even to honor them. We didn’t even do DNA to identity those who were burnt beyond recognition so that their families could give them a befitting burial”.

“We just dug a mass grave and pushed all of them into it. That was the end. Today we are holding a ceremony in Ghana to honor George Floyd. But this same government sent police to brutalize protesters in Adenta who were protesting for a foot bridge. Ghanaians are not blacks. Their lives don’t matter,” he added.
