Renowned artiste Manager, Lawrence Nana Asiamah-Hanson widely known as Bulldog has classified George Floyd’s Memorial service which was organized by the Ministry of Tourism, Art as “silly, childish and foolish”.
The service was held by the Ghana Tourism Authority, Office of Diaspora Affairs in partnership with the Diaspora African Forum at the W. E. B. Du Bois Memorial Centre for Pan-African Culture in honour of the African American who was killed by a Police Officer who knelt on his neck.
Majority of Ghanaians including musician has condemned the government for the service when according to them, many Ghanaians had fallen through similar instances and nothing had been done for them.
In an interview with Nana Kwesi Asare on Class FM, BullDog stated that it was foolish of the Government to hold such service with the taxpayers money.
According to him, many Ghanaian’s have lost their lives and the government have failed to honour them. He stated the four Tarkoradi missing girls and Ghanaian journalist, Ahmed Hussein-Suale as victims.
“I think it’s foolish, I think if we have a diaspora community here in Ghana which I know we have and they are doing this for George Floyd I understand, but if you are going to waste taxpayers money… the Ministry of Tourism, Art and Culture does not know what to do with our monies but will spend it on this, then it does not make sense”.
“I believe that we have too many dead [people] in this country, there are four girls missing in Takoradi till date we haven’t found them and nobody has held any memorial service for them…there was a journalist that was killed and nobody has held a memorial service for him and countless individuals, Ghanaian lives were lost in serving this country of ours, nobody gives a damn…so, I don’t get it unless it’s for exportation purposes. I mean why will a Ministry of Art and Culture put their logo there and say it’s beyond the return I think it’s so silly, childish and foolish,” Bulldog stated.
