No Short Route To riches – Chief Advises Youth

The Muslim Paramount Chief of Aplaku, Bortinor, Oshiye and Kokrobite Alhaji Salifu Attram has urged Ghanaian youth to desist from using shortcut means of making money as riches and success do not come within a twinkle of an eye. Instead, he urged the youth to meticulously study the business environment before venturing into it as that can lead to a profitable and sustainable business.

The Muslim Paramount Muslim Chief of Aplaku made this known during the celebration of International Hausa Day at the State House in Accra said most Youth are becoming very desperate in the quest to get rich quick with no recourse to the consequences. He expressed displeasure over how most of the Ghanaian youth embark on perilous journey abroad in search of greener pastures; unfortunately, significant number of them perish in the process. He called on the youth to utilize of official means of travelling abroad adding that most of the people who made their way through to foreign countries through illegal routes regret their decision due to the frustration they they and harsh conditions they endured before getting to their destinations.

According to him traveling abroad is not the only means of “getting to the top” rather it takes hard work, determination, and time to achieve success in life. He further called on the youth to work hard and stop the desperate act of get- rich-quick syndrome adding that money will come at the right time when they wait patiently and work hard.

He also advised youth not to see money making as a ‘Do or Die affair’ but rather seek God’s grace and favour in their daily activities.
