From Osaberima Nana Appau Vasco:
It's very sad that instead of some Ghanaians to support this wonderful movement by our brother, they are rather painted with party colors lambasting this good course. Hmmmm my people, when are we going to be patriotic at least for ones and stop being partisans
Richard Mensah commented:
Since 1912 and we are still seeing this and some people don't want us to talk. We have a long way to go.

So America is a country and Ghana is also a country ? Deep forest!! Afuom
Wiwerito Baafa replied:
Nothing has changed after 109 years ago. Is really a shame!
More than a century and still having such a situation existing. The God's must be crazy
From Moses Ohemeng:
But how different is the 1912 setting from today? To me, the only difference is the cloth, instead of today's tattered "milo and bread". They shamelessly tell us we are 300 years behind America.
YEN.com.gh also reported that, Ghana teacher, vlogger and social media education advocate Michael Owusu Afriyie famed as Teacher Kwadwo has been seen in a new video dressed in traditional attire.
The teacher was in the news recently following his one-man campaign to push for changes in the Ghana Education Service (GES).
