Sekou Nkrumah says video shared is 'so annoying'

Dr. Sekou Nkrumah, one of the sons of Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, recently expressed his disgust at a video in which American-based preacher, Bishop Thomas Dexter (TD) Jakes was eulogizing President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

Whiles sharing the video of the American preacher in his chapel, reading a lengthy praise of President Akufo-Addo on his Facebook timeline, Dr. Nkrumah captioned his post, "What BS [bullshit] is this, so annoying.”

The post generated over one hundred and fifty comments and forty – six shares on the social media platform at the time of filing this report.

Some social media users who commented on the post commended Bishop TD Jakes for the good PR work done for the country.

Other users also picked on the son of Ghana’s first president stating that he would have been full of praise for the preacher if it was about his father.
