- The founder of the ICGC, Dr. Mensa Otabil, has bemoaned the lack of the spirit of adventure among Africans
- According to him, Ghanaians and Nigerians would have left for the United States if they received visas for a week
- He added that Africans should rather focus on places such as the Mole Park or the Kintampo Falls
The Founder of the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC), Dr. Mensa Otabil, stated that Ghana and Nigeria would be left empty if the United States decided to give out free visas for a week.
The man of God passed this comment on Sunday, March 4, 2018, during his church’s 34th anniversary service.
According to him, the number of Africans who risk their lives to cross the Mediterranean Sea, and then travel to Europe, is gradually reaching alarming proportions.
“Look at the number of our people who try to cross the Sahara Desert to go to Europe? And believe you me, if that way were open, Africa would be empty. It would be empty,” he said.
Dr. Otabil then went on to say that it is a lack of sense of adventure, coupled with hopelessness, drives Africans to other countries in search of greener pastures.
Further expressing his dismay at the rate at which Africans leave the continent, he noted that the reason behind such constant travels was not that of adventure, but rather a sense of hopelessness.
To him, people with the spirit of adventure would prefer to go to places such as Mole National Park or the Kintampo Falls.
