Masa health care alone is a plus don't discourage any body from travelling.
Fellow Ghanaians don't let anyone trick you with a foolish talk even health care alone is plus go and see pregnant women on bare floor in some of our hospitals do you see that in U.K ???? Do you see children learning under trees Pls dnt come and spoil our mind.

You see our black sense. Why don’t you allow others to experience their own adventures. If it’s that bad why do you leave your family to go there.
The whole country will be empty soon. We will leave the President and his Ministers behind to govern themselves and their children .....

A post sighted by YEN.com.gh shared that, Mustapha Bushira's reason behind his advice is that, the cold weather is very deadly and can end one's life.
Ghanaians refused to let the old man's statement slide. They headed to the comments section and left over 1,600 opinions there.

Sometimes I sit and wonder why they say abroad is not good but still they continue staying there why don’t they come and stay in Ghana rather than saying living there is a hell but still stays there.
If it doesn’t go well with you , it doesn’t mean another person will suffer same as u. U went there misusing your energy on unnecessary stuff and life beats then you come talking.
