Blame education system for immigration of Ghanaians - Political Scientist

View previous topic View next topic Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]



A Political Scientist, Kofi Owusu Yeboah says Ghana’s educational system is the main reason for the spate of immigration among Ghanaians.

According to him, the inspection of certificates and working experience has triggered a lot of people to travel outside the country for greener pastures.

Speaking on Royal FM Morning Show, Mr Owusu stated that “in foreign countries jobs which require certificates are reserved for the citizens".

He added that immigrants are not asked of their certificates before they are offered jobs.

“All what is required is the skils or ability to do a specific job.

According to Mr Kofi Owusu Yeboah, in Ghana, one may be endowed with the skills but may be considered as unqualified since we claim he or she has never stepped foot in the classroom before or has no certificate.

According to him, since the skills of the individual is in higher demand in foreign countries, Ghanaians choose to travel outside in order to make the best out of their skills.

He further noted that for Ghana to develop, we need to include a lot of people in the developmental process especially the highly skilled. He lamented that in Ghana the skilled personalities are sidelined from the developmental process.

‘Go to the various magazines in the country, we have a lot of skillful personalities but are neglected due to the syndrome of certificate requirement and language (English).

He therefore suggests the inclusion of the highly skilled in the development process and also highlights the need to use our local language for the benefit of all.
