Issues surrounding the 2021 report on Human Right Practices in Ghana released by the US State Department, the flagbearership race of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the strike by the members of the Civil and Local Government Staff Association of Ghana have for the past few days dominated Ghana's traditional media landscape.

But are these the only issues some celebrities and ordinary Ghanaians are talking about?

GhanaWeb takes a look at the top trending issues Ghanaians are talking about on Twitter and the reasons they are talking about these issues.

Bank of Ghana

Ghana’s central bank, the Bank of Ghana (BoG) is the number trending issue on Twitter. Ghanaians are talking about the bank the most because of a warning issued on a new cryptocurrency called "SIDICOIN".

The bank said the "SIDICOIN" which is an investment scheme is not been licensed to operate in Ghana.

“The public is hereby cautioned that neither this investment scheme nor the Promoters of the company have obtained the approval of Bank of Ghana, to operate in the banking and payment services sector," BoG added.

The second leading issue Ghanaians are talking about is Menzgold, probably because the caution by the Bank of Ghana on "SIDICOIN" reminded them of Nana Appiah Mensah’s investment scheme.

Menzgold Ghana Limited is a Ghanaian gold dealership and investment firm that promised customers an average of 7-10 percent monthly returns on investments.

The company was however ordered to shut down by the Securities and Exchange Commission for operating under a false pretext which lead to the funds of a lot of Ghanaians being locked up. Menzgold has since begun to refund the investment of its customers.

The name Torres is the third most trending issue on Twitter trends in Ghana, referring to the Spanish football club Villarreal’s defender Pau Torres for his performance in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final match against the English side, Liverpool FC.

Some Ghanaians are saying that a penalty should have been awarded against Torres for a tackle on Liverpool's player, Mohammed Salah.

Some are also commending his performance in the match and have urged Manchester United to sign and partner him with Raphael Varane in their defensive backline.
