The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has called on the Federal Government of Nigeria and protestors of the EndSARS Movement to use dialogue in addressing the impasse.
The silence of President Akufo-Addo has generated a lot of talk in the country with many questioning if the president was on top of his position as ECOWAS Chair.
President Akufo-Addo made the call via a post on his social media handles.
In a series of social media posts, he said he has already spoken to Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari on the processes of reform.
Akufo-Addo further expressed his condolence to the victims of clashes, insisting violence is not the answer.
Some 78 protesters have reportedly been massacred by the Nigerian army in Lekki, Lagos.
On Tuesday night, the Nigerian military opened fire on unarmed civilian protestors at Lekki Toll Gate, one of the pivot areas for the ongoing #EndSARS protests.
Earlier, many celebrities in Ghana including Lydia Forson, Yvonne Nelson, Nana Aba Anamoah Sista Afia and a host of others called on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to react to the issue.
Among many other things, they claimed that Akufo-Addo was the chairman of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), therefore he had to speak.
