A Proverb a Day…

Posted on: August 2, 2010

Da a ehia Opoti na ehia Daye. When Opoti went broke, Daye also went broke. 

This Akan proverb is based on a story about a man named Daye who was dependent on Opoti for sustenance. If you depend on someone else for your survival, your fate is linked to theirs. The day they go bankrupt, so do you. Same with depending on the government or any other entity. Self-reliance is the best policy.
