Ghanaian government has violated Nigeria’s diplomatic premises. A day to the end of the year, Nigerian High Commission in Ghana received a terse letter from solicitors acting on behalf   of Amaco Microfinance Company, Limited, Ghana giving instructions for the High Commission to vacate its diplomatic property at No, 10 Barnes Road, Accra.

The letter warned that failure of the High Commission to comply within the stipulated time would lead to depositing of the mission’s belonging at the nearest Accra police station.

A statement made available by Nigerian High Commissioner to Ghana, Ambassador Olufemi Michael Abikoye indicates that the property has been broken into by the company and is being ransacked with the likelihood of being effectively occupied.

The letter from the solicitors is coming following continuous violation of the diplomatic property and a formal notification by Ghana Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration that the diplomatic property had been reallocated to Amaco Microfinance on August 26, 2019 by Ghana’s Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources following the expiration of the lease.

The host Foreign Ministry further stated that, there was an assignment of a lease hold interest from the assignor, Thomas D. Hardy to Ministry of Finance Incorporated-Federation of Nigeria on 23rdOctober, 1959. It explained that at the time of the assignment, the leasehold had 16 years to lapse and that the term of the lease based on which the assignment was executed expired 46 years ago, without any evidence of renewal. As such the property reverted to the state in compliance with article 258 of Ghana’s 1992 constitution.

The High Commissioner disclosed that the reallocation was done without any recourse to the High Commission.

Meanwhile Ambassador Abikoye had earlier yesterday informed Ghana’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration of the vacation notice through a Note Verbal and also requested that such information should be routed through the right diplomatic channel.

It would be recalled that Ambassador Abikoye had severally requested for a mutual resolution of the matter, affirming that Nigerian government is examining the situation and that appropriate was being awaited.

We Hope Biden Will Learn Lesson From Trump’s trade War – China

Published

China hopes that the new U.S. administration of Joe Biden will “learn a lesson’’ from the crisis that bilateral relations suffered while Donald Trump was in office, an official said.

China also urged the U.S. to seek to improve ties with Beijing, the Foreign Ministry’s spokesman, Zhao Lijian, said on Tuesday.

“We hope that the new U.S. administration will try to learn a lesson from the drawbacks of the Trump administration’s policy; will consider China and the Sino-U.S. relations objectively and rationally as well as adhere to the policy of a positive and constructive dialogue.

“And will, together with China, promote the return of the Sino-U.S. relations to sustainable and healthy development,’’ Zhao said at a news briefing.

Zhao pointed out that, over the recent years, the Trump administration made numerous mistakes in relations with China, as it considered Beijing to be a rival and took steps that undermined China’s interests.

He added that the two countries should strengthen their cooperation since they shared common interests and carried the responsibility for the maintenance of international peace.

“We have repeatedly said that China and the U.S. … share common interests and bear responsibility for the protection of the international peace, stability and promotion of the global development.’’

In March 2018, Trump launched a major trade war with China and accused it of currency manipulation and theft of U.S. intellectual property.

In 2019, Trump ordered the U.S. Department of Commerce to ban U.S. companies from doing business with China’s tech giant, Huawei.

This step was followed by further sanctions put on other Chinese media companies.

The Trump administration also publicly questioned the legitimacy of the Chinese Communist Party and stepped up relations with Taiwan, violating the consensus reached by Washington and Beijing regarding the island. (Sputnik/NAN)

Twitter now interfering in U.S. elections – Trump

Published

United States of America, Donald Trump
Spread the love

President Donald Trump has accused Twitter of interfering in the 2020 U.S. election scheduled for Nov. 3 after the microblogging service provider tagged his tweet as misleading.

Trump also lashed out at the company for “completely stifling free speech”, saying he would never let that happen as president.

“@Twitter is now interfering in the 2020 Presidential Election.

“They are saying my statement on Mail-In Ballots, which will lead to massive corruption and fraud, is incorrect, based on fact-checking by Fake News CNN and the Amazon Washington Post.

“Twitter is completely stifling FREE SPEECH, and I, as President, will not allow it to happen!” he tweeted in response.

Earlier on Tuesday, Twitter labelled a post by Trump as misleading, and directed the president’s followers to a fact-check page on the post.

In the tweet, Trump had claimed that voting by mail or mail-in ballots would lead to “substantial fraud”.

It read in part: “ There is NO WAY (ZERO!) that Mail-In Ballots will be anything less than substantially fraudulent.

“Mail boxes will be robbed, ballots will be forged & even illegally printed out and fraudulently signed.”

Under the tweet came a circled exclamation mark followed by the message: “Get the facts about mail-in ballots” in a hyperlink.

The link takes readers to a Twitter fact-check page that debunks the claim.

“Trump falsely claims that mail-in ballots would lead to ‘a Rigged Election’.

“However, fact-checkers say there is no evidence that mail-in ballots are linked to voter fraud,” the company said.

The move came after Twitter turned down a widower’s request to delete “horrifying lies” told by the president in a tweet about the death of his wife.

Rather, the social media giant, which had promised to warn its users about false or misleading messages posted on the platform, resorted to the use of the label on Trump.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Trump’s claim on the mail-in ballots followed his attacks, over the weekend, on the use of the voting method by several states, including California.

The states say they will use that option in November to prevent a second wave of the coronavirus disease that has taken a heavy toll on the country.
