Ghanaians have descended heavily on a man who decided to record himself using tap water without discretion simply because President Akufo-Addo has made it free for 3 months.
In a video sighted by YEN.com.gh on the official Instagram handle of Facts and Truths, the gentleman opened three different taps and had two buckets overflowing, while a wash sink was just flowing away.
Luckily for him, the man who perpetrated the act did not show his face or reveal his voice by speaking but that did not stop him from being heavily attacked by Ghanaians on social media.
