- Ben Asamoah Darlington is a Ghanaian man living in the United Kingdom who believes there are better opportunities in Ghana than in other countries
- He advised the Ghanaian youth not to travel outside Ghana for greener pastures since they can explore the opportunities in the country
- He, however, explained that he is not discouraging people from travelling outside Ghana when they get the opportunity but rather encouraging them to make use of what is in Ghana
A Ghanaian man living in the United Kingdom has advised his young Ghanaians to stay in their home country instead of travelling abroad for greener pastures.
Ben Asamoah Darlington said there are more and better opportunities in Ghana as compared to other places in the world.
In an interview with DJ Nyaami on SVTV Africa, Ben Asamoah Darlington explained that even though there are better opportunities in Ghana, he would not discourage those willing to travel abroad from doing so.
“Even though there are opportunities in the UK, there are many more opportunities in Ghana. We do not see it as such, but farming, for instance is a huge business. Many Ghanaian health workers who travelled to the UK are stranded now. Meanwhile, they had good jobs in Ghana."
"We keep advising the youth to travel abroad. Don't get me wrong, the UK is a good country, but not everyone can come here. Encourage them to go back to Ghana and start businesses," he added.
His claim of Ghanaian nurses being stranded buttresses another person's comment on the same matter.
Gifty Antwi, a Ghanaian woman living in the UK, said several Ghanaian nurses and health workers who recently relocated to the UK are still without jobs.
Ben Asamoah Darlington said aside from greener pastures, people also travel because of a better health system compared to Ghana.

"I relied on our traditional medicine, and that saved me,” he said.
