Ghanaian experts abroad needed back home urgently - Ametor

Communications Consultant to the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA), Eric Ametor Quarmyne has urged Ghanaian nationals in the diaspora to utilize their expertise to improve the country’s economy.

Speaking on U TV, Mr. Ametor Quarmyne expressed worry over the high number of Ghanaians living outside the country. According to him, it is prudent for citizens to use the knowledge they have acquired in their various fields of endeavour to enhance the progress of the country.

He spoke in relation to the calls made by Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II during the celebration of his 15th anniversary that Ghanaians should support and invest in the nation so as to revitalize the economy.

Mr. Ametor Quarmyne held strongly that the culture where Ghanaians travel overseas to use the knowledge they have gained to develop foreign countries should stop.

He stressed that “after acquiring knowledge and training, and they are supposed to use it to enhance the progress…you will locate several knowledgeable Ghanaians who are helping other countries. Though it is a fact that they transfer things to their families in Ghana, but the knowledge that they have acquired and using in foreign lands does not help us.”
