Ghanaian Abroad Says He Hasn’t Achieved Anything After 22 Years: “I Sold My Properties To Travel”

  • Emmanuel Wilson, a UK-based Ghanaian, has shared how he sold his car and house in Ghana to travel abroad
  • However, he stayed jobless for two years because of language barrier after relocating first to the Netherlands
  • He later moved from the Netherlands to the UK, where he slept at a train station for four months

Emmanuel Wilson, a UK-based Ghanaian, has shared his challenging journey in the search for greener pastures abroad.

According to him, he first travelled to the Netherlands after selling his car and house in Ghana. Emmanuel's decision to sell his house and car was driven by the need to provide for his children after divorcing his wife. However, he could not get a job in the Netherlands due to the language barrier.

In an interview with SVTV Africa, Emmanuel said following a friend's advice, he relocated to the UK but found himself sleeping at a train station for four months after his initial host refused to pick him up. After four months, his host finally provided shelter but confined him to a room for three weeks.
