Followers of President John Dramani Mahama on Twitter, a social networking site, had ‘harsh’ words for him when he tweeted to encourage the senior national team, Black Stars, in their match against Germany last Saturday.
Hours before Ghana drew 2-2 with Germany at the ongoing FIFA World Cup in Brazil, the President posted on his account: John Dramani Mahama – @JD Mahama “Spoke #BlackStars via telephone just before this #GHAvsGER match. ‘You can win. You can do it. You can defeat Germany,’ I told them.”
The President tweeted at exactly 19:20 (7:20pm) but followers appeared incensed by the post and used harsh language in their comments on the tweet.
Neymar Jr’s Jr. @evans_dench replied: “Shut up!” while Panda [email protected] used the ‘F’ word to greet the President’s tweet.
Nothing Subliminal @bees_bryan said “Hmm joker,” where Rafatu Braimah @rafatash replied, “Massa with all due respect shut the f**k up.”
[email protected]_ET asked, “Why did you do that?” while Skul_boy @geradgleen asked the President to “say this to ECG please H.E.”
Papa Kofi @KofiMontana said “you can provide water, you can provide electricity…you can do it,” while Akwasi Amoah @akonkoliwa replied: “Same to you. You can fix the economy. You can defeat dumsor dumsor.”
