An ex-American military man has said that a lot of opportunities abound in Ghana and has urged Ghanaians and investors alike to strive to do business in the country.
Speaking in an interview with YouTube vlogger Lily Ogini, Calvin Daniels who relocated to Ghana last year says he is happy with the decision he made and feels he should have made that journey earlier.
“I felt the time had come for me to leave America, initially I thought of Nigeria but I later changed my mind. I sold my house, my vehicles and gave away my furniture and then travelled to Ghana. I arrived in June last year and I tell my family back home that I should have made that trip 10 years ago.”
Calvin Daniels says he has invested in snail farming and has 15 employees.

The ambitious man says he hopes to have 1 million snails in 2 years’ time.
He stated that Ghana should focus on agriculture because that sector is a huge area where citizens and investors can make more money.
I have plans to go into tomato farming. Ghana imported $400 million worth of tomatoes from Burkina Faso last year. If you look at that scenario, you realized that all that tomatoes should and must be produced in Ghana. So if I can produce even 10 percent of what is imported, that is $40 million.
Netizens who reacted to the video commended him for his vision and drive.

This Bro has really good plans. I hope he takes it slowly because Ghanaian workers can ….shatter your dreams. Please let him know, he has to act like a businessman, not a charity organization
