Ghanaians are angry after UK-based Media network, Sky News referred to them as one of the world’s poorest people.
This comes after 600,000 doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine arrived safely in Ghana this morning.
Sky News reported on it. However, how they labelled Ghanaians in their caption on Twitter has caused uproar on the microblogging site.
Their caption reads: “A flight carrying 600,000 doses of the AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine has arrived in Ghana as part of a global effort to immunise the world’s poorest people.”
Ghanaians on Twitter has fired at the media company, telling them that they deserve to be referred to with a much respectable word and not calling them ‘poorest people’.
