Ekow Jones is a middle-aged shoe trader who still hopes of traveling to the U.S.A because it was a promise made by his father over 20 years ago.
“I was hoping to travel, but whenever my father came to Ghana, I was on a work trip. He was a seaman at the time. He came here four times, but I never met him. At the time, there were no phones for communication. So I got angry and traveled,” he said.
According to him, traveling abroad was an expectation. As a result, his growth was stifled, making things slow.
“If I had a brother there, I wouldn’t be worried, but for my father, he told me that he would come for him before anyone else. He is now married to a white lady, so it has become difficult to come to Ghana,” he added.
