The Ghanaian government has held a funeral memorial in honour of George Floyd, the unarmed African-American man who died after a white police officer knelt on his neck during an arrest in Minneapolis last week.

The funeral service which was organized by the country's Ministry of Tourism Arts and Culture, The Ghana Tourism Authority, Office of Diaspora Affairs (Office of the President), and the Diaspora African Forum took place at the Dubois Centre on Friday morning.

The event was attended by several government officials including former president, Jerry John Rawlings, who took to the stage to deliver a touching tribute to George Floyd.

That’s applaudable but I would have commended the Ghana government if they first extend love to their fellow Africans neighbors before crossing thousands of miles away from the motherland. I’m so much proud of Ghana for showing a black star love and support  to fellow Africans  American .That is a big up for Ghana in that regard .I think Africans wherever they may be or their place of birth ,regardless of nationality should come together now or never to resist racism directed mostly at the black race .We need this type of support throughout the entire black nations of the world.
