National Communications Director of the NDC, Sammy Gyamfi is currently being dragged on Twitter for disrespecting the death of George Floyd that has erupted various campaigns both online and offline to fight for Black Lives.
George Floyd, an African-American man, died in Powderhorn, a neighbourhood south of downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota On May 25, 2020.
Mr Floyd was in handcuff and lying face down on a city street during his arrest for allegedly issuing a dud check of $20 at a deli.
Derek Chauvin, a white Minneapolis police officer, pinned him down with his knee on the neck of Floyd.
He kept his knee there for more than 8 minutes.
Other officers at the scene included Tou Thao, J. Alexander Kueng, and Thomas K. Lane who were participating in Floyd’s arrest.
A video of the incident captured by an onlooker and posted online has sparked protests in major cities across the United States and even beyond its borders to Europe
Sammy Gyamfi in an attempt to discredit the electoral commission and the NPP and prove to Ghanaians the connivance between the NPP and the EC in an attempt to stifle voters in Ghana with the introduction of a new voter register shared a cartoon depicting how floyd was sadly killed.
His cartoon has since been condemned by well meaning Ghanaians on Twitter.

This is so wrong on so many levels. Not only is this disrespectful to the man who lost his life in this way, it also does not signify anything. This is disgusting!
