Social Media Reactions
Obuorgh was of the view that floods happen in every country as he said:
It’s like this everywhere in the world when it rains despite their huge drains and sewer systems. I’m not defending how crazy it is but if you want pictures and videos go to you tube and see for yourself the floods in some advanced countries.
Daniel_ceek didn't seem too happy with the post:
Sorry but there are a whole lot of houses that never experienced this Meaning you rented the wrong place You should’ve check the surroundings if the house is situated at waterways or not This is not about “waking up in Ghana like this” but waking up in waterway houses like this!!
gofosu_ sympathised with him, saying:
Sorry you have to experience our country like this...
