Ghanaian Real Estate guru Nana Kwame Bediako popularly known as Freedom Jacob Caesar has called on Ghanaians in the diaspora to come back home and use their skills and ideas to build their country.
Speaking at the third edition of “The Ghanaian Dream: A moment with Freedom” forum organized by Bridge Partners, he said, Africans can build their countries themselves without any external support when they come together as one continent.
According to him, it is so sad to see Ghanaians abroad usually visit home purposely for Christmas and Easter holidays but not to invest in the development the country.
“It saddens me to see Ghanaians abroad visiting their motherland only on holidays. I think the time has come for Ghanaian in the diaspora to come back and help our communities with their skills and ideas rather than utilizing it in foreign lands. We blacks can make Africa work like what we see abroad,” he said.
Nana Kwame Bediako also took the opportunity to emphasize the need to invest in industrialization as the only tool to end the high rate of unemployment in the country and add value to the citizens.
He said industrialization is everything and can help create jobs and also empower citizens to make money to create wealth and ensure economic balance.
“In my network of creating wealth I have been to different places all over the world and one thing I have learned is that Africa is lacking is industrialization. Industrial power is everything and can help create jobs to enable citizens buy houses and cater for themselves always”, Nana Kwame Bediako said.
Freedom Jacob Ceasar added that in 2021, his aim is to serve the public by creating more employment, more platforms, build telecommunications platforms, technology hubs, petroleum cities, energy cities and many others.
This third edition of “The Ghanaian Dream” forum was the first to be held in Ghana, as the event historically took place in Amsterdam attracting diaspora from all over Europe.
