Man campaigns against societal pressures

The old man known as Ernest Birmeh announced that he would be undertaking a month's demonstration against unnecessary societal pressures.

The societal pressures he mentioned were:

"Why are you not in haste to get married? When will you be giving birth? And you have given birth to one, and even having only two children is considered not enough."

Advising people in the video, he said that anything that you are been pressured to do that would make you struggle later on, stay away from it.

"If you know that you will struggle when you get married, stay away. If having children will bring you problems, stay away."

In the protest, Mr Birmeh also advised men not to pay the school fees of young ladies and expect something in return such as marriage.

He also advised men not to help a lady find a job because it will eventually create problems.

"Women who are giving their fellow women pressure, please be humble. Women who pressure their men to buy luxury items for them also create problems," he said.

Arriving at the forecourt of Accra-based media house, Despite Media, Mr Birmeh was dressed in a long-sleeved white shirt with the inscription, "IGP Inspector General of Pressure".
