- He compared the challenges of living in Ghana with the benefits he enjoys in Germany, such as social support and job accessibility
- Isaac Korang suggests that those who find life abroad difficult should consider returning to Ghana, admitting that living overseas isn't for everyone
Isaac Korang, a Ghanaian residing in Italy, has cautioned his fellow Ghanaians abroad to refrain from complaining about their circumstances, asserting that such complaints often stem from depression or a lack of vision.
Explaining his stance, Isaac juxtaposed the struggles of living in Ghana with the benefits he experienced as a resident in Germany, urging others to appreciate the opportunities available abroad.
In an interview with DJ Nyaami on SVTV Africa, Isaac highlighted the support systems in Germany, including child benefits and accessible job opportunities, contrasting them with the challenges faced by Ghanaians back home, such as strenuous manual labour and limited job prospects.
According to him, many Ghanaians abroad who complain have never experienced the hardships of living in a typical Ghanaian village, where necessities are scarce and livelihoods are precarious.
Meanwhile, Isaac stressed the disparity in living standards between Ghana and Italy, describing Italy as a "heaven" compared to the hardships endured in Ghana.
Moreover, he suggested that those who find life abroad unbearable should consider returning to Ghana, emphasizing that living abroad is not suitable for everyone.
He encouraged Ghanaians to travel abroad if presented with the opportunity but cautioned against idealizing life in foreign countries without considering the challenges and adjustments required.
