The rate at which Ghanaians leave the country to pursue better opportunities overseas is becoming a source of concern.

These travelers relate their departure from the nation with unemployment, low income, and a broken government system.

Serwaa Amihere, a media personality and brand influencer, has added her voice to the already-existing worries made by various government officials and other celebrities over Ghanaian youngsters leaving the nation.

On March 31, the brand influencer sent a tweet that provoked comments from certain X users.

In her tweet, she highlighted that Ghanaians, notably those aged 20-30 and earning at least GH¢5,000 in salary, should not hurriedly contemplate leaving the nation.

“I believe that if you are in your 20s or 30s and earn at least GHC5,000 or more, you should not rush to leave Ghana. She tweeted, “It’s not all that rosy out there.”

Many X users who reacted to the article remarked that it is difficult to discover a young individual in the specified age bracket earning such a large sum of money considering the country’s present economic difficulties.

Others argued that, given the economic problems, such a sum is insufficient to maintain oneself and dependents. Furthermore, for others, the desire to leave Ghana is motivated not just by riches, but also by things such as better healthcare and other facilities that improve a country’s quality of life.
