Kwamo (Ash), Sept. 27, GNA – Ghanaians have
been urged to use social media for economic gains instead of using it for
Nana Asamoah-Boafo Queku, the Chief Executive
Officer of the Digital Gold Market Trade (DGMT) Company Limited, said the
global technological advancement was steadily drawing mankind into a digital
world and it was, therefore, imperative for Ghanaians, especially the youth, to
brace themselves up for this phenomenal change.
“Instead of using social media for inordinate
activities, let’s now use it to get the right information to tract genuine and
lucrative businesses on the platform,” he said.
Nana Queku said this in an interview with the
Ghana News Agency at a two-day seminar on Online Financial Transaction,
organised by DGMT for the youth at Kwamo, near Kumasi.
Nana Queku said his outfit, which was into
“crypto currency and forex trading online,” was committed to training one
million Ghanaian youths on how to participate in the largest financial market
and make the best out of internet usage.
“The internet is now producing millionaires
through job creation without waiting on central government for employment. All
that people needed now is to get the right information, hence the DGMT
initiative,” he said.
Nana Queku urged Ghanaians to shun the
perception that businesses online were likely to be fraudulent and that the
internet could be used for more decent and profitable transactions to gain
financial freedom, even as the world moves into a cashless era.
He advised the youth to develop
entrepreneurial skills to be productive and self-reliant, saying; “God expects
us to be creative, we should, therefore, adapt to change through
entrepreneurship and impact positively on our communities, nation and the world
