Video: Youngman Send A Message To Nana Addo To Find Job For Him Since Galamsey Is Illegal.

The country's unemployment rate is steadily increasing day after day. Many young men and women are working hard to make ends meet, but the high cost of living is producing a lot of stress and troubles among the youth. Because of the high rate of unemployment, teen pregnancy is on the rise. A video of a well-built man giving a message to the first gentleman of the land, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwah Akuffo Addo, is quite disturbing although he did not use any harsh words.

As per the young man, he used to be a galamsey worker, but as a result of the fight waged against galamsey, he is now in a financial crisis.

This is how he described his ordeal in a message to Nana Addo Dankwah Akuffo Addo.

"Nana Akuffo Addo, because of the collapse of galamsey, I am now jobless and broke." I don't have any other work to do but galamsey, so please find something for me to do. I'm currently unable to provide for my family due to a lack of funds. I understand you are the president of the country, and I respect you for that. Please locate me police or military work so that I can support myself and my family."

However, some Facebook users disagree with the man's reasoning for having so many children when he doesn't have the financial resources to support them.

"It's astonishing the youth are tired of joblessness," commented one Facebook user named Shelter Kinney in a remark. What do you want them to do, our leaders? We all know that galamsey is destroying our water bodies. You're meant to provide them with jobs and open government-run factories for them. What are your plans for them to support their families now? Even working in Ghana is difficult, so imagine how difficult it is to be at home and not working. How will their families be able to stay alive?

Galamsey, on the other hand, is wreaking havoc on our lands and water bodies and must be stopped at all costs. However, before outlawing the practice, there should be a plethora of factories where these young men and women would be obliged to labor in order to make ends meet. Stopping them without a plan in place will merely create a new problem someplace, especially now that the stakes are so high.
