Hundreds of Ghanaians in Berlin last Tuesday protested against President John Mahama who is in the country to hold bilateral talks with German Chancellor, Angela Merkel.
Some of the protestors were seen with placards with various inscriptions such as, “Stop cocaine trade in Ghana”, “No German Loan for NDC”, “Dumsor Dumsor, We Need Light, Dumsor Dumsor We Don’t Have Light”, “Mahama Is a thief”, “NDC Cocaine Party…” among other things.
However, in a statement, the Flagstaff House said only a handful of opposition members picketed around the Intercontinental Hotel in Berlin where the President was on Tuesday.
“In a sharp contrast to the handful (exact count, 18 people) of opposition NPP supporters who were outside the Intercontinental Hotel in Berlin holding placards insulting the President of the Republic of Ghana, hundreds of patriotic, concerned and hardworking Ghanaians living in Germany on Tuesday evening met with President John Dramani Mahama as part of his State Visit to the Federal Republic of Germany.”
“The over three hundred Ghanaians who attended the Ghanaian Community Meeting to interact with the President included Ghanaian professional, traditional leaders, students, business executives, children of Ghanaians living in Germany some of who are now Germans of Ghanaian Origin and a number of friends of Ghana,” the statement noted.
