In a Facebook post, he had a very important advice for every Ghanaian youth. He wrote "Every time I meet young people, I hear “Ghana is tough for a young graduate like me, so how do I make it to the top?” Simple: there is no substitute for hard work. To truly reach the top and stay there, the only recipe I know is hard work and perseverance. It’s not an option — it’s a necessity, and there’s no doubt in my mind that hard work pays off."
He added, "I have heard people say they would rather work smart than work hard, and my response is you must work smart and hard. Even if your smartness takes you to the top, you’ll need to work hard to sustain this. You just must put in the hours. Yes, you're going to face adversity and you will need some luck and good fortune on the way, but when you have a plan and you make a commitment to work hard at it, you will excel" #TheNewMcDan
