“I don’t blame Nana for Buhari’s incompetence”- Medikal holds brief for President Akufo-Addo

Ghanaian rap musician, Medikal has held brief for President of Ghana, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in a recent tweet concerning the “SARS” brouhaha.

For some few weeks, West African neighbours of Ghana, Nigeria has seen some sort of turmoil with regards to some alleged police brutalities that have been going in Nigeria.

Scores of youths in Nigeria have taken to the streets for about a month to protest against some brutalities being allegedly perpetrated by a special unit of the Nigerian Police.

As parts of the protests, some youths have been mobilised via social media and have resorted to staging demonstrations with the aim of calling on the federal state to abolish the federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), which has long been accused of unlawful arrests, torture and extrajudicial killings.


It is against this background that, Samuel Adu Frimpong popularly called Medikal has defended President Nana Addo for being silent on the brutalities especially looking at his role as the Chairman of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and the seeming silence on his path regarding the SARS saga.

In a tweet, he stated that President Akufo-Addo cannot be blamed for Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari‘s incompetence since he has the key to put a closure to the SARS saga. However, he also commented on the seeming silence of President Nana Addo since the SARS saga commenced.

The tweet read: “The Ghanaian president ein silence on social media no de mean say he is doing nothing behind closed doors. Maybe he is, who knows ? How many times wonna President address the nation during COVID/ lockdown period in Ghana ? Severally ! don’t blame Nana for Buhari’s incompetence !”

In 1984, SARS was a special unit set up by the Nigerian government to fight the plethora of crimes and kidnappings that had risen up. It became one of the most effective ways to fight crimes and illegal activities in the Nigerian society.

However, In June 2020, Amnesty International released a report that documented at least 82 cases of torture, ill-treatment and extrajudicial execution by SARS between January 2017 and May 2020. This has therefore culminated into mass outrage leading to protests in these past few weeks.
