Please I'll kindly advise you to remain where you are and try to explore other opportunities you can create for yourself over there. If you were to be single, relocating to Accra won't be much of a problem but with two kids, hmm. My little advice is remain where you are. Thank you

Move from your comfort zone and explore my dear, a friend was posted to greater Accra and tried all ways and means to change it because of rent issues he heard. He was forced to come cos he could not change it, now during vacation he doesn't even want to go. There might be great opportunities out there for you. Trust me, you will testify there one day. Good luck
Great Elase Aan replied:
Madam, please remain wherever you are. Life in Accra is very hectic. You're even lucky to rent 180gh hall and chamber self-contained which you wouldn't get in Accra village. Don't try to relocate, because your kids fees can even cost more than your salary
I was scared to let people know I graduated with a 2nd class & not 1st class - KNUST graduate says & gets many reacting
From Sabina Aneya:
People are earning as less as Ghc1000 in Accra and they are surviving. My dear ! Please take the job offer in Accra wai na this life is all about progress. Those saying your expenses will take all the money no, what do they expect? As far as you are eating and buying stuffs, definitely some of the money will go. Just make sure I’m get accommodation closer or a bit closer to your work
Vivian Nsiah commented:
Accra is a land of business opportunities. Go there, if you're assured of job security. You could be generating a lot of other side monies to support rent, once you start a business. Kids are definitely assured of good education too but fees could be higher too
