The NPP National Communication Director shared that he saw many of the Ghana Immigration applicants showcasing expensive iPhones at the recruitment grounds and he wondered how they regard themselves as unemployed.
"Go and check the applicants for the immigration recruitment. Some are holding an iPhone 12 and the latest phone in town but are in a queue looking for an immigration job. The Ghc 10,000 you're using to buy the phone, that 10,000 can be a startup capital for something else but that person says I am unemployed," he said according to Peacefmonline.com.
