On the 26th of May, 2016 news hit social media that the Ghana Police service has plans of blocking social media websites on Election day; November 7th,2016.

According to John Kudalor -Inspector General of the Police service, civilians and political parties could use these platforms for misinformation thus posing danger to the nation’s security.

He used Uganda as an example, saying the citizens woke up to realize that social media access had been cut on election day. President Yoweri Museveni defended their actions saying “security measure to avert lies…intended to incite violence and illegal declaration of election results.”

Ghanaian being Ghanaians took to social media to make known their displeasure. Let’s take a moment to see a few yet major reactions .

The only way I can think of they blocking these websites is by telling the Internet service providers to do so. But that is for a  later update! For now let us see what the people had to say.

Did you know the Ghana police; though not confirmed as an official twitter page? As you can see in the Cover Image. I say official because their Bio says so and the information their timeline is accurate.
