President Trump blocked on Facebook and Instagram until transition is over

The block of President Trump’s accounts on Facebook and instagram follows his supporters storming the US Capitol to protest, when Congress sat to affirm the president-elect of the united states of America.

Facebook and Instagram took the decision following a video President Trump uploaded on his facebook page  asking the protesters to go home, yet continue to make false claims the election was rigged in favour of President-elect Joe Biden.

The announcement concerning his accounts blocked, was made by CEO of facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, on facebook.

He wrote;

The shocking events of the last 24 hours clearly demonstrate that President Donald Trump intends to use his remaining time in office to undermine the peaceful and lawful transition of power to his elected successor, Joe Biden.

His decision to use his platform to condone rather than condemn the actions of his supporters at the Capitol building has rightly disturbed people in the US and around the world. We removed these statements yesterday because we judged that their effect — and likely their intent — would be to provoke further violence.

Following the certification of the election results by Congress, the priority for the whole country must now be to ensure that the remaining 13 days and the days after inauguration pass peacefully and in accordance with established democratic norms.

Over the last several years, we have allowed President Trump to use our platform consistent with our own rules, at times removing content or labeling his posts when they violate our policies. We did this because we believe that the public has a right to the broadest possible access to political speech, even controversial speech. But the current context is now fundamentally different, involving use of our platform to incite violent insurrection against a democratically elected government.

We believe the risks of allowing the President to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great. Therefore, we are extending the block we have placed on his Facebook and Instagram accounts indefinitely and for at least the next two weeks until the peaceful transition of power is complete.

anas

Ghanaian international award-winning journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, has issued a warning to persons engaged in perpetuating human rights abuses and corrupt practices of what is to be expected in the coming year.

At the end of every year, people, depending on their line of work, commit to resolutions that are used to guide their actions in the coming year and for Mr Anas, his resolution will be turning up the heat on people who fleece and pilfer Ghana’s national coffers as well as those who commit crimes of human right abuses.

Sharing a picture of himself on his Facebook page, the ‘anonymous Anas’ with his back turned towards the camera captioned the image with the message:

“Dear all, as we ready ourselves for 2021, let us not forget that we have only one Ghana! For the thieves who pilfer our national kitty with impunity and abuse human rights, there will be more fire on you in 2021. Happy New year.”

Davido storms out of nightclub in Accra after alleged brawl with Burna Boy (WATCH)

Nigerian afro-pop star Davido reportedly clashed with fellow musician Burna Boy in a nightclub in Accra.

On Sunday night, the two music rivals reportedly engaged in a brawl at Twist nightclub in Accra.

Though the incident wasn’t captured on camera, Davido was filmed storming out of the nightclub after they were separated.

The cause of the brawl is yet unknown, however, Davido and Burna Boy have been engaging in some petty feuds since March of 2020.

It all began when they both decided to release their latest albums the same month and some song writing credit issues between Burna Boy and Davido’s signee Peruzzi.

Nigerian music executive Paul O called Burna Boy and Davido, and Wizkid – who was present – to order in an Instagram post after the incident.

He called them his sons and described them as ‘afrobeats heroes’, adding that they should use their ‘super powers’ to ‘unlock greatness, set an example and lead the way’.

He wrote: “Dear Sons, African Giant, Baddest OBO, and biggest Star Boy. I love you guys, You all have made monumental strides to advance African culture around the world. Your music has helped to change the face of Afrobeats and turned it into one of the most popular music genres today. You all have worked so so so hard to achieve this status and we are proud of what you have contributed to music, as talented musicians, and most importantly as African men.

This year has taught us all valuable lessons about life, love, friendship, work and passion. Let’s not forget the reason we all started.

Atwea Prayer Mountain to be developed into tourist centre

The Methodist Church is working in close partnership with the Sekyere Central District Assembly to develop the Atwea Prayer mountain into a monumental sacred religious tourist centre.

Right Reverend Robert Osborn Eshun, Bishop of the Effiduase Diocese of the Methodist church, who made this known said the mountain was now one of the most attracted areas for spiritual renewal and it was important to provide facilities to help visitors.

He was speaking at a public lecture to commemorate the relevance of the discovery and existence of the renowned prayer mountain.

It is located at Abasua in the Sekyere Central district and is considered as one of the most sacred religious and spiritual renewal sites, which attracts more than 40,000 pilgrims for spiritual cleansing and prayers every year.

It was discovered by one Reverend Osei Asibey, an evangelist of the Methodist Church in 1965, while he was travelling from Asante Mampong to Effiduase to preach the gospel of Christ to the people in the area.

The mountain, which was known as “Krobo Buo” by the local people, was believed to be the home of a powerful deity who was worshiped and served by a traditional priest for the people of the Abasua community.

After the death of the traditional priest, the deity was deserted and Rev. Asibey, passing through the area to Effiduase was said to have been led to the mountains by Angels of God, who charged him to develop the place into a restive centre for people to pray to seek the face of God to solve their spiritual and physical problems

It had since become the most preferred prayer centre for worshippers and believers from Ghana as well as other countries who visit, for a closer fellowship with God.

Rt. Rev. Eshun said the public lecture was to create awareness for the people to know and understand the historical, spiritual and economic contributions of the prayer mountain to the nation and the world at large.

He acknowledged and commended the immense contribution of Evangelist Richard Kwasi Afriyie, Manager of the Centre, for the remarkable infrastructural development in the centre under his stewardship.

Rt. Rev. Eshun said a strategic partnership for investment with the district assembly would not only help to improve the spiritual renewal, but the socio-economic development of the people in the area and called on the people of the Abasua community to keep their environment clean to make the place attractive to the people.
