“As a permanent staff of Unibank. My Net salary was gh6,700 a month, I had good allowances. I had 6 dependents. I was able to take care of them by Gods grace. I had 2 cars and was building my house. Life was ok for me. Until NPP came to power and forcibly collapsed the bank and now here I am, jobless, frustrated, depressed.

“I sold my cars. My building project stalled. More painful is my dependents looking up to me, and I can no longer help. What wrong did do? My thumb misbehaved in December 2016. I campaigned for Npp in 2016. My friends use that to mock me till date. Well, I, together with my dependents will be doing ‘correction’ in December this year,” he wrote on Facebook.
