The man who was captured in the viral video, while complaining about the economy and how much they are suffering, hurled insults at the president and also threatened to vote against him in the upcoming general elections in 2024.
“[unprintable insults]…Nana Akufo-Addo, this is me Oko the Killer…..We dey hung, your Excellency, in 2024, you won’t get anything,” he said.
