A viral video has captured youths in Ghana rejecting bags of rice given to them by some politicians.
The angry Youths of Damongo town in Ghana were seen rejecting the bags of rice sent to them by NPP politician, Samuel Abu Jinapors, who represents their constituency in the country’s parliament.
The Youths also took turns to carry the bags of rice back into the Hilux that brought them, while instructing the Politician to immediately leave the vicinity with his goods.
They were also chanting “We need jobs and not bags of rice.”
The development has generated plenty of reactions from far and wide, with many showering encomium on Ghanaians for rejecting what they described as the politicians’ way of vote buying.
They also seized the opportunity to call Nigerians to emulate their West African neighbours in the run-up to the 2023 general elections when political activities are expected to be in full gear.
Reacting also, Senator Dino Melaye, who represented Kogi West Senatorial District at the 8th National Assembly, urged Nigerian youths to grow up and stop selling their votes to politicians.
The Senator, who made the call in a post via his Instagram account, wondered if the same incident can ever occur in Nigeria.
He further noted that Nigerian youths needed to grow up and equally learn from Ghanaian youths.

Can this happen in Nigeria? To be honest, Nigerian youths needs to grow up.
