Controversial counselor George Lutterodt has debunked the assertions made by some Ghanaians that the Wanderlust group’s 16-day voyage from Accra to London helped to popularize Ghana.
A few weeks ago, the Wanderlust group, made up of thirteen members, decided to travel from Accra to London en route.
Ghanaians had a variety of reactions to this news as they pondered if they would be able to make it to their destination given the potential dangers involved.
Fortunately, on Sunday, August 6, 2023, the group was able to arrive in London. Many Ghanaians praised them for pulling off such a feat and for putting Ghana on the map.
Counselor Lutterodt, however, contends that this group’s operation has actually degraded the country’s reputation.
“They went and have successfully landed, and we are thankful to God. Lies and wrong means can get people to the right places, but it is not the right thing,’’ he stated in an interview on Okay FM, monitored by 1Family Radio.
“They have gone, and they have put Ghana in a negative image by risking their lives. They could have been victims of an attack and been slain by this revolt, coup, or rebels. People travel from Ghana to Nigeria by road, and they are being attacked.’’
He continued, “This is a wrong move, and if there is anything we should tell them, we should let them know that they shouldn’t repeat this thing again until they go through the right process. Process is very paramount, and the fact that someone used the wrong process to get the right result doesn’t mean you should follow suit.’’
“No one should try this venture again. The ministry involved should sit up, and the ambassadors should also sit up,’’ he added.
