Activist Kwame Asare Obeng, widely known as A Plus took to his Facebook page to blast government of Ghana for trying to hold a ceremony in honor of George Floyd who was murdered a week ago in America and has sparked a protest known as Black Lives Matter.

“Government of Ghana is holding a ceremony in honor of George Floyd but 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 girl 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 peaceful protesters in Adenta who were protesting for a foot bridge. Ghanaians are not blacks. Their lives don’t matter!!!
One day all of us will know who really cares about this country and it’s people. May God grant all of us long life!!!”
