Deputy National Communications Director of NPP, Kamal-Deen Abdullai has wondered how some youth find themselves owning expensive iPhones yet complain of unemployment.
Speaking on Peace FM he expressed shock at how some young persons going through the immigration recruitment process flaunt the latest iPhones yet cannot start something on their own.
“Go and check the applicants for the immigration recruitment. Some are holding an iphone 12 and the latest phone in town but are in a queue looking for an immigration job. The Ghc 10,000 you’re using to buy the phone, that 10,000 can be a startup capital for something else but that person says I am unemployed,” he said.
“Don’t use the starterpack capital to buy an iphone worth Ghc 12,000 because you want to develop your business. When you are given a loan to start a business, the first thing you’re thinking of is to buy a fresh car out of that loan. How do you pay back? . . . So, it’s about attitude. It is our way of life that won’t help us. We want to appear flamboyant . . . I think it’s a sad one,” he told host Kwami Sefa Kayi on Peace FM’s ”Kokrokoo”.
