Entrepreneurs are those who understand that there is a little difference between obstacles and opportunity.
In African countries, more than 70% of entrepreneurship opportunities are occupied by foreign firms, which are now having a big hit on the African economic crisis. It is also a significant challenge for local and young entrepreneurs.
The idea is not to stop foreign investors, but it’s for the African countries to unlock their citizen’s potentials. We send our citizens to European countries on study loans, yet we claim graduates must create employment opportunities to accommodate unemployed and meet the government halfway. However, the government set up some challenging requirements for starting a company which cannot be achieved after walking out of the University. This is what we call growing crops but yet there is no interest in harvesting the crop, what a waste of study loan and what a waste of seeds.
Our government is displeasing their citizens while pleasing foreign citizens. What can we do?
