A Ghanaian man based in Canada has advised his fellow countrymen to refrain from selling their properties, especially houses, with the sole intention of traveling abroad with proceeds made from the sales.

His advice stems from the story of another Ghanaian man living in Canada, Nana Kay (not his real name) who sold his three-bedroom house in Ghana just to seek greener pastures abroad but has since regretted it.

"He (Nana Kay) had been following narratives online that portrayed life abroad as all rosy and so he was expecting to get a job a day after getting to Canada.”
"After a month he was expecting to get enough money from the job so he could send some home to his parents who were living in the house he sold, to rent another house but that didn't happen.”

According to Killa Bee, Nana Kay has been jobless for six months and has since been lingering with regrets over his decision to relocate abroad.
