"Things are not going well for me in Dubai. Ghana is better than Dubai because in Ghana, I will not go through any stress. In Ghana, I have my own handiwork. I'm a bus driver, but here, I need to go to the driving school before I can get a job in my field of work," he said.
"And the money that one would use to attend driving school can even buy a car in Ghana,. So for me, Ghana is better than Dubai," he added.

Another thing the Ghanaian man living in Dubai lamented over was the lack of preferred dishes in Dubai. He indicated that he's homesick because he doesn't get the kind of food (local dishes) he wishes to eat in Dubai. He thus stated that if given the chance, he wouldn't hesitate to return to Ghana.
