Unemployed for 5 years!? Within that 5 years, Akufo Addo was the president. So meaning Akufo Addo hasn't created any jobs as he claimed OMG
Whoever made this video obviously lacked tact. It’s the small details. When dealing with sensitive issues, a lot of nuance is required. Now MacBook and Ps5 are trending and nobody is paying attention to the message.
No job but you dey use McBook & PlayStation 5. Yooo y’ate wae. Your room seff nice pass someone wey dey job for flagstaff house under this administration. We will support it ok, don’t worry.
