Rural-urban migration: Head porters share their plight – Citi Business News


Summary short_text

The failure of successive governments to bring rapid development to rural Ghana has contributed to the influx of young people from rural Ghana to urban Ghana in search of greener pastures.

As Ghana moves to develop through industrialization, the living conditions of head porters, popular known as Kayayei, are a glaring reminder of how far the nation has to go to extend its developmental drive beyond urban areas for young people, particularly in Northern Ghana, to live decent lives.

Despite government's efforts to promote economic activities in rural Ghana with policies like One District One Factory, One Village, One Dam, and Planting for Food and Jobs, hundreds of young people continue to migrate from rural areas to urban areas in search of a better life.
