“Retract and Take It Down” – Sarkodie Condemns Sammy Gyamfi’s Use Of Floyd’s Death For Party Politics


Sarkodie has reacted to Sammy Gyamfi’s insensitve post which compared the death of George Floyd to EC’s refusal to desist from compiling a new voters register.

Earlier, the communications officer of the National Democratic Congress,(N.D.C) posted a cartoon artwork that depicted the President, Nana Akufo-Addo, and Jean Mensah standing on a man who was tied down. The cartoon was interpreted as the two parties’ deliberate attempt to choke Ghanaian voters to death with voters’ register compilation — likened to the death of George Floyd.

George Floyd, a 46-year-old African American, died in Minneapolis on Monday while being restrained by the police.
