A Ghanaian man who has been staying in the United States for the past 40 years has purchased a $500,000 mansion and he wants you to know about it.
Isaac Kwaku Adjei in an interview that has hit the web said it is a waste of time building a house in Ghana whilst living outside hence why he decided to build his mansion there.
He said nothing will ever make him relocate to Ghana, not to think of even building a house here.
Kwaku Adjei mentioned the insecurity in the country as a big reason why he doesn’t want to make a return to build here.
According to him, he sees how other people abroad build houses down here but then have to suffer with armed robbers and other issues.
“I saw how Ghanaians have to build tall walls around their houses, invest in electric security wires. I looked at it and told myself, No, I won’t come back to Ghana.
“All this huge protection because of the increase in armed robbers,”
He added that since travelling his mindset has never been to come back home and build something but he would rather invest there.
He added that he has rather bought a 6-bedroom house in Indiana for close to half a million dollars.
“I didn’t come to America with the mentality of saving money to go and build in Ghana. Most people who do that us close to five and ten years to complete one building. Old age will catch up with you,”
“I saw a lot of unfinished buildings in Accra during my last visit. I won’t build in Ghana while I am still staying in America. This is because I have the mentality of not returning to Ghana…
“Right now I have cut ties with Ghana. In my old age, I have adopted certain principles…I have bought a 6-bedroom house here in Indiana. I bought it for $449,000,” he revealed.
In another twist, Isaac Kwaku Adjei claimed that the infamous fabric known as ‘Fathia fata Nkrumah’ was designed by his father.
He says their family hails from Bonwire, the accepted home of kente weaving in Ghana.
