Some angry Ghanaians domiciled in the US clashed with a crowd of locals that the Akufo-Addo government had reportedly shipped to the States to stage a praise-singing picket for the president who is attending the 76th Session of the UN General Assembly.
The clash reportedly happened around the UN Secretariat building in the Turtle Bay/East Midtown neighborhood of Manhattan in New.
A video of the clash captures the unhappy Ghanaians in the US in a hot exchange of words with those that the government had shipped, amidst threats of physical blows.
It took officers from the New York Police Department to forestall the physical beatings that the two sides were promising each other.
Meanwhile, from what is gleaned from the video, the locals that the government had shipped to the States for the praise-singing job are hardly literate with many of them unable to read, Whatsup News gathered.
Consequently, they had failed to realize that they could not go within a certain perimeter of the UN building where they had thronged with Ghana flags to wave for the President.
Their violation of the clear signs proscribing the off-limits area was pointed out several times by their angry counterpart as evidence that they were party goons that the Jubilee House had blown taxpayers’ funds on to provide optics for the President.
