Born, Thorsten Owusu Gyimah, Yaw Tog claims he does not intend to settle down permanently in Ghana and would rather alter his nationality in order to do so.
The 18-year-old, who graduated from Opoku Ware Senior High School in 2021, claims that he intends to continue his education by enrolling in a university in the US or the UK.
“I’m currently not schooling but I have plans to school. I will definitely not school in Ghana,” he said.
“Everything has time and I don’t want to rush the process and end up stressing. I’ve already started applying and I’ve done that in the UK and the USA. It’s obvious my admiration for UK and for me I’ll definitely school there. I don’t know but I really like these two,” he added.
Talking of returning to Ghana, Yaw Tog said, “I’ll definitely come back but I’ll be a citizen between the two.”
In an interview with Zionfelix, Yaw Tog, he made the admission and added that the country’s current economic situation is intolerable for him.
He claimed that until he finished senior high school and made the decision to support himself, he had no idea how difficult life was in Ghana.
“I’m a citizen for Ghana but let’s say I feel like doing it (being a citizen for UK or USA) because in 20 years time I’ll not be in Ghana. I feel like changing the environment.”
At first I didn’t cater for myself so when folks say Ghana is hard I think it’s an exaggeration but right now that I fend for myself I feel the heat in the country.”
