Unforgivably Ghanaian - Investors = Foreigners

What is the word for investor in Ga? Twi? Fante? Ewe? How about Dagomba? Hausa?

When government officials and the political elite talk about investors they are invariably referring to foreigners. Why? Does this explain why almost everything that requires any capital investment is owned by non-Ghanaians?

I have seen government officials travel to the US and made statements like "I'm not here to meet Ghanaians, I came to meet investors". There are several Ghanaians who can invest in the opportunities available in GH but nobody approaches them. Why?
