My tweet wasn’t going to get Ghanaians on the streets’ – British High Commissioner to  IGP.

The British High Commissioner has reacted to the Inspector-General of Police (IGP)’s response to her tweet about the arrest of #FixTheCountry convener, Oliver Barker-Vormawor.

Harriet Thompson says her tweet was harmless and does not have the capacity to tamper with the peace being enjoyed by the populace.

Speaking in an interview on Accra-based GHOne TV on Tuesday, May 31, she said she did not expect a response from the IGP at all.

Ghana is a peace-loving nation where people do have the right to express themselves, where they do have the right to come and protest things that matter to them.

A tweet like that is not going to be the thing that will get people onto the streets, in my view. If I had thought that there was the remotest chance of that, I wouldn’t be tweeting things like that. That is clearly not my intention,” she said.

Her response comes after the Ghana Police Service asked the British High Commissioner to Ghana, Harriet Thompson, to mind her own business so far as matters pertaining to the arrest of Oliver Barker-Vormawor are concerned.

Harriet Thompson, in a Tweet on Tuesday, May 17, said she looks forward to seeing how the arrest of the convener of the FixTheCountry Movement will turn out.
