Ghanaians have reacted to a video making wave on the internet which saw a young boy criticizing President Nana Akufo-Addo for saying that teaching can't make someone millionaire in Ghana.
Ghanaians have chosen to advise President Nana Akufo-Addo to be mindful of what he says because the young boy in the video stated that they're destroying Ghana's land through Galamsey and he would later travel outside the country. The young boy gave some reasons which Ghanaians thought it's sensible to them because of what the president have said to teachers.
According to Ghanaians, the young boy's statement is funny, disrespecting but also sensible and stated that Ghanaians are wise up now and leaders in the country should be more careful about what they say because they can't lie to them anymore.
Someone said: This looks funny but makes so much sense. I'm glad the younger ones coming now are thinking deep and deeper. You could see this guy is doing this galamsey because of poverty at home.
"Our leader must be mindful of what he says. The people are wise up than ever. Gone are the days when they deceive the people" someone strongly advised president Nana Akufo-Addo when A-Plus shared the video on his social media wall.
Someone emotionally told A-Plus that: A plus, go to Accra digital center, the new passport office and see how the youth are rushing for passports. If the opportunity arises everybody will leave Ghana and it will be left with the greedy politicians, then they will tax themselves and spend it on their wives and v8s.
Someone stated that: What the president said about teaching is an insult and a threat to the teaching profession. Who will want to become a teacher in the future and which parents would encourage their children to venture into teaching? Don't look down on teachers if you cannot make their lives better. You should bow your head in shame Mr President.
"Hmmm very sad, I know a Ghanaian lady teaching in a government school in Dubai, she drives v8, I asked her about salary and was it was 15,000 dubai currency. Convert to ghana cedis and see. Lose talk Mr president. The sad thing is that they travel and they know all this things. She's helping Ghanaian graduates teachers to also get job here, and very soon Ghana will luck teachers" someone leaving outside the country reveals.
