Posting the flyer of the memorial service to be held for George Floyd in Ghana, Hon Sam George said “as a people we are not angry enough with the wanton idiocy on display. If we were, those who control public resources would take us more seriously and not insult our intelligence and sensitivities like this.”

He explained that, many people such as the 7 Zongo boys, Ahmed Suale, Kintampo accident victims, 3 Takoradi girls, murdered Mankralo of Prampram and many more, who have lost their lives in equally tragic circumstances but did not even evoke a strain of sympathy from President Akufo- Addo and his cohort but a memorial service is now being held in honour of an unknown person.

Addo and his cohort, continue to rest in
peace.
