Ghana tears down Nigeria election poster
The campaign billboards of President Goodluck Jonathan, the People’s Democratic Party’s presidential candidate and Muhammadu Buhari, the All Progressive Congress’ presidential candidate which were located on different roads in Accra, Ghana, have been pulled down for security reasons reports Channels Television.
Ghana’s National Security Agency ordered that the billboards be removed, showing concerns for the welfare of the West African country’s citizens. Kwesi Annin, a security expert at the Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre, reportedly implied that by pulling down the billboards, the country is being preserved from a possible attack by terrorist group, Boko Haram.
Kwesi Annin also stated that the precautionary action taken by the country was to promote the peaceful relationship between Ghana and Nigeria, not making it seem to favour one party over the other. He also said the decision was taken based on considerations as to whether the law permits foreign political entities to campaign in Ghana.
