On his Twitter handle @DeleMomodu on the December 7 Ghanaian elections, Otunba Dele Momodu tweeted: “Lights are going off in many parts of Ghana, from reports…”
But in swift replies, Ghanaians gave him back as follows:
@m3nsahenyy: “Fake news nonsense”.
@MaeObike: “Just say fake news and leave it at that. Why the ‘nonsense’?”
@PaaQwecy: “This is disgraceful Sir, we have lights as far as a majority of the country is concerned. We voted in peace and we are counting in peace..Kindly stick to your NEPAPowerCuts, ENDSARS and interviewing BBNaija contestants. Thank you.
Responding to the “shameful” development, a post on Facebook said: “See difference between Ghanaians and Nigerians: They recognized fake news and treat it as that: They gave it back to Dele Momodu and I said:
“Can we be right to say some Nigerians produced Fake News in excess for local use and export to Ghana?”
In his contribution, Grace Anderson said: “These are youths potential and they also have their country at heart not ‘Soro Soke’ youths that want to burn down their own country.”
Solaja Bamidele Sikiru said: “The undesirable elements know a fake news when they see one but most unfortunately, theiri brains are configured to live in denial.”
Idris Ahmad said: “They are patriotic enough. These guys are like many of us Nigerians who simply refuse to allow undesirable elements drive us to evil.”
Turaj Ahmad said: “Shame on those unscrupulous Nigerians. They thought they could just practice their rubbish everywhere.”
