Trending: Haven’t 5-yrs of unemployed Francis hear about NABCO? Ghanaians roast Akufo-Addo on e-levy advert… video
Twitter users are dragging the President of Ghana Akufo-Addo over a video he posted on Twitter which is preaching the goodwill of controversial Electronic Levy ( E-Levy) hence Ghanaians must embrace it.
In the video, a young man who mentioned his name as Francis claimed he completed Takoradi Technical University five years ago and has since remained unemployed.
However, he is adamant that the government’s new policy which will be supported by the E-Levy will help him and other unemployed youth to establish their work and employ others.
But the video has received backlash from discerning Ghanaians who have questioned the claim by the young man, Francis that he has been unemployed for five years.
Some asked why didn’t he apply for the government program that seek to give relieve to graduate unemployed, NABCO.
Some also questioned his living conditions as an unemployed man.
Young Francis who didn’t show his face in the video was living in a decent apartment fully furnished.
Here are some of the tweets:
