A teacher has shared a rather hilarious video of the TM1 laptop he received from the mass distribution exercise that was undertaken by the government of Ghana.

The footage that was made public by Teacher Kwadwo, a social media influencer who is also a teacher by profession, showed how difficult it was for the laptop to boot.
