President Akufo Addo has reacted pleasurably after Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey announced that Ghana is the headquarters for Twitter operations in Africa.
Jack Dorsey had taken to his Twitter account to make the claim formal where he detailed why they settled on Ghana as the headquarters for its operations in Accra.
The tweet reads;
Today, in line with our growth strategy, we’re excited to announce that we are now actively building a team in Ghana. To truly serve the public conversation, we must be more immersed in the rich and vibrant communities that drive the conversations taking place every day across the African continent.
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.
Reacting to this, President Akufo Addo expressed great excitement and lauded them for this action taken and established that this is the beginning of a beautiful partnership between Ghana and Twitter.
Akufo Addo tweeted;
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.
