Speaking exclusively to YEN.com.gh, Mr Christopher Antwi, a homeowner and the Managing Director of a Chiropractic centre in Ghana said:
I started building my house in Ghana when I was having my master's education in the UK. My twin brother in Ghana was responsible for the project and I was disappointed to see the house they had built upon my arrival. I expected to see a mansion.

Attention to detail craftsmen and being open to corrections help you to be a better person in your work. Good job for putting it out there my sister.
Nefertem Ur added:
Greetings DIY House and Farm, great content as well as points you make. I surely hope Ghana comes out well on its IMF restructuring, and the gold decision was excellent but beware. Continue to enjoy and build in Ghana.
Joyce Stewart remarked:
I am so happy I found your channel. My husband and I are very detailed and do not want to waste time or money. We have decided to move to Senegal to be there for the construction.
You have a good eye so you know when it looks okay and fits in. I'm the same way. It has to be right!
