Ghanaian expeditioners travelling by road from Ghana to the United Kingdom have criticised critics who have labelled their journey as futile.
In an exclusive interview with Rainbow Radio 92.4FM in the UK and Rainbow Radio 87.5FM in Ghana, the group stated that people who have made harsh comments about their voyage are motivated by poverty.
According to Kojo Saka Addo Mensah, one of the Ghanaian expeditioners, it is terrible that people are tweeting negative emotions and making disparaging remarks about what they are doing.
He added that they did not set out to make a name for themselves but rather to explore.
“I feel sorry for those who have insulted and denigrated us. We are focused and determined to achieve what we set out to achieve. Our aim is to inspire, our aim is to encourage, and our aim is to let people believe in their dreams, work for them, and pursue them. There is nothing we have said we would do and did not do.”
