CEO of Sterling Bank blames Nigerians for Twitter’s decision to make Ghana its headquarters in Africa



The CEO of Sterling Bank, Abubakar Suleiman, has blamed Nigerians who bad-mouth the country for Twitter’s decision to make Ghana its headquarters in Africa.

Twitter announced yesterday that the company is now in Africa, with its headquarters in Ghana.

“Twitter is now present on the continent. Thank you Ghana and @NakufoAddo,” Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey tweeted today, April 12.

Nigerians reacted to the fact that Ghana, and not Nigeria, was chosen to be the headquarters.

Then Suleiman weighed in, writing: “First you tell the world Nigeria is a zoo.. Then you hear @TwitterSF has chosen @GhanaPresidency as their WA headquarters & you are wondering why.

“If you can’t sell yourself, nobody will buy you. Nigeria remains the heartbeat of Africa, our current struggles notwithstanding.”


A number of his followers took to the comments to disagree with him and he doubled down, writing: “I think everyone sells. And we should showcase the good things in our country even as we critic the shortcomings..”
