“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.”

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.
