Responding to his tweet, the current president of Ghana Nana Akufo Addo via his official twitter handle @NAkufoAddo tweeted the following:

 

“The choice of Ghana as HQ for Twitter’s Africa operations is EXCELLENT news. Gov’t and Ghanaians welcome very much this announcement and the confidence reposed in our country.

As I indicated to @Jack in our virtual meeting of 7th April 2021, this is the start of a beautiful partnership between Twitter and Ghana, which is critical for the dev’t of Ghana’s hugely important tech sector.

These are exciting times to be in, and to do business in Ghana.”

Explaining the reason they decided on Ghana, twitters co founder Kayvon Beykpour said the following:

 

“As a champion for democracy, Ghana is a supporter of free speech, online freedom, and the Open Internet, of which Twitter is also an advocate. Furthermore, Ghana’s recent appointment to host The Secretariat of the African Continental Free Trade Area aligns with our overarching goal to establish a presence in the region that will support our efforts to improve and tailor our service across Africa.”

 

 

A lot of Nigerian twitter users were of the opinion that Nigeria would have been the best destination to locate Twitter headquarter had it not been the high rate of insecurity in Nigeria and the way the present Nigerian government disrespects its citizens, since its the giant of Africa and we have a lot of leading tech heads around the world. Here are a few of their opinions as taken from twitter:

 

“@OgbeniDipo – Ghana Flag of Ghana has made a lot of progress in the last decade and there is so much Nigeria Flag of Nigeria can learn from them.
First of, peace and stability helps. We need to significantly deal with insecurity in Nigeria.
Then, the constant policy summersault and irrational regulations must end.”

“@henryshield – Twitter setting up its African HQ in Ghana is a clear message to the idiiots in power in Nigeria.”

“@tayooye – I am happy that Twitter is building a dev team in Africa.The team is focused on Africa’s LARGEST market (Nigeria) but will be based in its SANEST market (Ghana). Sanity > ingenuity. Nobody wants to deal with erratic regulators, poor infrastructure, and security concerns.”
