CAN’T WE STOP OUR YOUTH FROM EMBARKING ON DANGEROUS JOURNEYS?.
Due to incessant clamor of Ghanaians and citizens of the third world to travel out for greener pastures, many young men and women use various means to leave our shores for Europe, United States of America South Africa and some Asian nations. The reasons for this adventure are many. Some of the young ones especially the women and girls are lured by some travel agents to travel to Saudi Arabia and Dubai to work as house helps. The Young men among them are taken out to work on farms and factories. On reaching their destinations they find to their surprise that they were lured into slavery. Even though they are made to pay for their journeys, their passports are often seized and they are subjected to difficult house hold chores from morning till late sometimes being denied decent accommodation food and freedom to move about freely. Most of those people who were lured to go on these journeys have managed to sneak back into the country. Speaking on this issue to us, most of these people said they were enlisted through their churches for that matter they had no reason to disbelieve the information they were fed about the foreign nations involved. Having been maltreated they have now chosen to advise all men and women to desist from travelling without going through proper arrangement.
If the trouble our youth go through in the hands of Arabs in Saudi Arabia and Dubai are Considered unacceptable, then what others are going through in South Africa and other nations can be described as nauseating. Due to the craze for wealth by young ladies these days, most of them are being lured to travel to South Africa. One of the ‘modus operandi’ of the perpetrators of this crime is to travel down to Ghana and some West Africa nations to get married to young ladies, flashing before them, large sums of money, sometimes buying them cars. As time goes on they would then suggest that they go on a honeymoon to South Africa. While in this country, they would then send them to hospitals for treatment where one of their kidneys would be removed and sold at high price. This is dangerous and must be checked.
Other adventurer travelers are still being lured to travel by road through the Sahara Desert to Europe through the Mediterranean Sea. This journey has become dangerous given the refusal of European countries to grant passage or asylum to travelers who pass-through Arab nations like Libya and Somalia to Europe.
To safeguard our citizens there is the need for us to take the following measures;
The government must take steps to examine the procedure used by the travelers to Europe, Arab countries and South Africa.
The government must find out the problems our youth go through and to find out who are those government officials and private persons responsible for this problems.
The government can [having gathered information on this issue} embark on education programs in schools’, churches and mosques and neighborhoods to educate the youth to follow the right methods in travelling. They must be made to shun those who call on them to go on a poorly arranged journey.
Arrange Proper travels
The government should them arrange with some foreign countries seeking workers, to come down to recruit workers to be sent out properly to work abroad. This way all those to travel out would be monitored while they make genuine money under proper labor laws.
