“We rely too much on foreign things. As to who is responsible for it, I don’t know. Some things we can produce here; we can rely on our own [people]. We keep [importing] too many things from outside. It’s not helping us. The little bit of foreign exchange we produce, a lot of it goes out to bring unnecessary things we can produce ourselves. So we should try to have confidence in ourselves and try to do things for ourselves here. Have confidence and I think we should be alright.” Frederick Akwaboah, pictured 3rd from the right, at a student function at Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.
