Ghana is not perfect, but so is the rest of the world. We may be suffering severe dumsor, fuel prices may go up whenever we blink and you may just get duped at circle if you aren’t ‘sharp’ but that is all part of being Ghanaian. Ghana is a great country but people still strive to leave the country at every opportunity they get. Well yen.com.gh want to make that decision easier with these 8 excellent reasons why you should definitely leave.
1. Ghana is not peaceful at all
Due to the recent political and religious unrest in the west and Arab nations, one would think now is the best time to leave the very peaceful shores of Ghana in search of greener pastures.
2. Ghanaians are known to be extreme
If you are looking for the biggest cowards in the world who will not trade their lives and peace of mind for a belief, Ghanaians are the last people to consider. Ghanaians are very extreme.
3. It's really expensive to live Ghana
When you have to spend Gh50p on hausa kooko or GhC5 for waakye, then it shows you how expensive it can be to get in Ghana. Therefore choose the life abroad where a cup of coffee is averagely $3 which is about Ghc10.
4. There is no freedom of movement
Even as a citizen and member of ECOWAS and AU, you still need identification when you step out just so authorities know that you are not an illegal immigrant who is trying to fend off benefit packages meant for Ghanaians.
5. There is no compassion or sense of belonging
When something bad suddenly happens to you, no Ghanaian is going to run to your aid or assist you when you need it the most. You just can't stop someone to ask for directions in Ghana when in some other countries, people go as far as leaving what they are doing to help you find your way.
6. Ghana is underdeveloped
When people say African countries are still very primitive in their physical appearance and processes, it might be true. Have you ever seen anything other than mud huts in Ghana? If you want to experience the best parties, food and alcohol at the classiest locations, you are better off using all your savings to apply for a visa to travel abroad.
7. Everyone in Ghana is so moody
Some people say they have experienced so much friendliness in a certain country that sometimes it feels like the people are nosy; but not here in Ghana.
8. Ghana police will shoot you
Ghana police haphazardly shoot citizens because, why not? Aside the fact that they hate it when you dip your hands into your pocket (because it is definitely not bribe) they also like to shoot citizens who look like they are about to break the law... and they of course can get away with it.
