355 applications from individuals in Ghana alone have been received since July 2023, indicating a notable increase in record-breaking aspirations.

They claim that the spike was especially noticeable in December 2023, when 251 applications were received, and that this momentum persisted into January 2024, when 80 more applications have been received so far.
