I worked and lived in Accra for over 20 years. I ran my own private company from 2001 until 2018.
Two million of the likes of Kennedy Agyapong cannot change Ghana.
Everything is wrong with Ghana.
The Director won’t give you contract except you pay up front.
The banks won’t give you loan except you concede a certain percentage.
The man supervising the contract won’t pass the job except you play ball.
The clerk won’t pass your file for payment except you rob his palm.
The accounts department won’t raise your payment voucher or cheque unless you see them. I can go on and on.
The worst thing is that it has become a norm that nobody sees anything wrong with.
If you think otherwise, they begin to think you are sick and not normal.
If you try to stand in their way, you put your life at risk.
If you get killed there is no justice system in place to seek redress and bring the perpetrators to book.
The police is corrupt, the Judiciary is the same.
Even the religious circle is not spared.
Everything in Ghana revolves around corruption.
Nobody cares about anybody. No law and order.
I looked from my left to right, everybody is only desperate about one thing “money”.
They will kill anybody and anything that stand between them and money.
I am an electrical engineer with MNSE and COREN. The system don’t care about my qualifications.
Distribution and transmission jobs are given to alhajis, pastors, friends and relatives without any basic skills.
I started asking myself, how do I convince my kids that education and hard work is rewarding?
When fools, agberos and touts are running the country from the local govt to the Presidency. Is this what my four sons will also go through? In 2018 I decided I have had enough. I decided I was leaving. I migrated to Australia with my family.
Don’t put yourself in harm way for any reason.
The problem of Ghana is in the hands of Ghanaians
