Ghanaians react to the plans by Stephen Apemah-Baah
Netizens who thronged the comments section reacted to the choices of the trio in relation to their dream universities.
It’s sad how their dream universities is none of the ones in the country. We will nurture them and they will travel with the knowledge because the system will even fail them along the road if they stays. Hmmm
Let's be honest, universities in most countries aren't at the levels of Havard and MIT. the issue is that other countries' students are able to return to their home Nations to develop them. Their governments provide resources when they return.
I like how most brilliant students now want to study computer science
