Today, April 12, 2021 one of the blue chips in microblogging and social networking services in the world, Twitter, has chosen Ghana to be the regional hub for Africa.
Twitter will set its first headquarters in Africa at Ghana in order to ensure effective operation and delivering of services within the continent.
The proclamation of the deal has created massive fuss in the public domain, especially on Twitter and other social media platforms.
The Member of Parliament for North Tongu constituency, Honourable Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has waded into the conversation.
According to him, the decision Twitter has taken is a good news for Ghana and citizens should be joyful about it.
However, he asserted in a Facebook post that government should negotiate this juicy deal for the interest of indigenous tech companies. This can be achieved when government promote local content participation in the negotiation.
“Twitter’s selection of Ghana to host and lead it’s Africa operations is absolutely fantastic news that must excite all nationalists.
It is my hope that negotiations will be keen on strong local content in order that Ghana’s young talented tech army derive maximum benefit”, he said.
He wrote this on Facebook today.
