YEN.com.gh earlier reported that it has sighted a rather interesting video of some students being handed out their free meals as promised and encouraged to say the new mantra.
In the video, the children who were spotted in a queue as they awaited their turn, each had to say 4 more for Nana after receiving their meal.
Even though it is funny and not right at the same time, the video has received a lot of reactions as people do not agree with what was being done.
