The desire to travel outside of Africa will always exist until African politicians create an enabling environment for businesses to thrive and for youth to realize their full potential.
Take a look at the hardships that have engulfed our continent, and you will see why many young people are willing to take great risks in search of greener pastures.
The risky journey is sometimes made as a stowaway or by trekking through the Arab lands’ dry desert. Only the fortunate few have the opportunity to travel by plane.
As a result, it is not surprising to hear an entertainer express a desire to leave the country if the opportunity arises. El Lizato has stated that he would travel outside of the country even if he was paid GHC20,000 per month.
Furthermore, he suggested that Ghana should be a place for a family reunion, where we could all get together every December, rather than a place to live.
He wrote “Even if I am earning 20,000 cedis a month ,i will still leave Ghana. This country should be for family reunion every December ,not a place to live.”
