Ghana’s former President John Dramani Mahama has condemned the decision by the new United States of America (USA) President, Donald J. Trump to prevent nationals of seven countries from entering the US.

He signed an executive order Friday barring citizens from Syria, Iraq, Iran, Yemen, Libya, Somalia and Sudan from entering the country for 90 days and suspended the admission of all refugees for 120 days. The order indefinitely bans entry of those fleeing from war-torn Syria.

While many countries have lambasted the ban, Muslim-majority nations not on the blacklist have remained largely silent — with the exception of Pakistan. Australia, which has implemented hard-line policies against refugees, was one of the few nations to voice support for the ban.

In a tweet, Ex President Mahama who finds everything wrong with the position taken by the Trump-led administration and has urged the ongoing AU Summit to speak to the issue.
