Mr. Stephen Wilson Bojewura, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Skylink Agro Solution Limited, has revealed there is high demand for Ghanaian products, especially its high-quality cassava flour and cassava grits, locally and internationally. However, assessing capital for re-engineering and expansion is a significant challenge.
Mr. Bojewura said 300 tons of high-quality cassava flour, 600 tons estimated for cassava grits, and 100 tons of gari annually left the firm’s production line for local or international consumption and destinations.
“Our unfermented gari is a premium and attracts exports. Access to capital for financial re-engineering and expansion is a major challenge. The ability to meet demand and maintain qualified or skilled labor considering the firm’s location hindered expectations.”Mr. Stephen Wilson Bojewura
Mr. Bojewura expressed hope that duty-bearers should reconsider drafting and implementing policies that provided a platform for permanent youth entrepreneurship, employment, growth, and development.
“Asia is succeeding through entrepreneurship, technology, and industrialization; I believe Ghana can replicate their example to set the stage for youth entrepreneurship for development.”Mr. Stephen Wilson Bojewura

Africa’s many empires remain a thing of the past
He said Africa had many powerful empires in the past, which the entire world relied on in terms of trade. However, these strong empires have remained only in history books now. Thus, he urged leadership to reset the stage for real economic emancipation.
Mr. Bojewura said Ghana and Africa have the most natural resources and quizzed, “Why are we poor? Why are the youths jobless?”
Mr. Bojewura’s assertions confirm the statement of Rwandan President Paul Kagame that “It is unacceptable that Ukraine, a country of 44 million people, will feed Africa, a continent of 1.4 billion people.” The President tweeted the assertion above, and it has received a lot of praise from people all over the African continent.
Mr. Bojewura urged the Ghanaian youth to take responsibility for making their lives and that of Africa better by liberating themselves from poverty through entrepreneurship.
“There will be no solution from our leaders. Therefore, we as youth must arise, take our destinies into our own hands, and liberate ourselves from poverty through entrepreneurship.”Mr. Stephen Wilson Bojewura
