Travelling abroad is literally the dream and wish of almost every African youth and they try frantically to get opportunities to leave their countries in search of green pastures.
They believe the grass is greener on the other side and with little effort, they will surely succeed when they eventually travel overseas.
Is that really the case? Does travelling make one realize his financial, educational and personal ambitions?
Well, a Ghanaian man who has been living in Norway for a while has counselled the youth not to rush to leave the country. According to him, there’s nothing special about travelling abroad.
He maintained that travelling abroad is a scam considering what he was told back home before he embarked on the journey. Situations in advanced countries are demanding and money is never earned on a silver platter, he had intimated.
Guys, stay in Ghana. Abrokyire be scam!!!

Many have corroborated his claim. According to them, living in Europe, UK or USA is not child’s play. One would need to dedicate his or her entire life to working to survive…a situation that could get dire when one loses his or her job.
Although the systems are relatively better than in most African countries, this man together with other experienced travellers believes it is rather better if Ghanaian youth stay home, build the country and shelf the idea of travelling abroad to make it.
Below are some of the comments

@MrKwakuOfficial commented: Hmmm. It actually depends on the abrokyire especially UK. Life no dey there oo. It work then taxes s)). UK get plenty restrictions. But I hear different narratives from those in US, Canada and Germany. However, life abroad is 98% work. Just work and pay taxes till you die.
2 years ago dem arrest some Ghanaian lady I know in London. Her offence, she had 20,000 pounds in cash in her room. Them say make she take receipt come show say the 20,000 all be ein own. She dey buy watches cheap in UK, sells it in Ghana & converts to pounds.
Where she go get the receipts from. The restrictions for abroad be too much especially UK. It is in Ghana that you can dream big and say if I get money I go build house buy big car and tins That place, the cars small, the roads small and the houses small. You go dream small.

@serickson_jnr commented: Pls forghet. I’ll love to be at a place where I have all the opportunities and be scammed. Than be in this same Ghana without opportunities and still be scammed. Because we’re still been scammed here by our leaders in office.
