Economic strife, insecurity, corruption, political intolerance, unreliable internet, and poor education systems are behind the desire of much African youth to relocate to Europe or the US.
To be exact, more than half of African youth aged between 18 and 24 are likely to consider emigrating in the next three years if their governments do nothing to improve the quality of their lives. This is according to the 2022 Africa Youth.
Simply put, African youth especially Ghanaians have lost confidence in their own countries and the continent as a whole to meet their aspirations and a rising number are considering moving abroad, according to a survey of young people from 15 countries.
The pandemic, climate crisis, political instability and violence have all contributed to making young people “jittery” about their futures as long as they continue to live in the land of their birth – motherland.
Consequently, Obofour who is the CEO of Last Chance Travel and Tour in the studios of Pure Fm has advised those who desire to travel outside the country to be more secretive else they’ll get stuck in the country forever.
According to Obofour, a person seeking to travel shouldn’t have any discussion with the biological mother as it limits the chances of the person perhaps in the spiritual realms.
