What is Accra Pictures by Day and Night?

Accra is the capital of the small, West African country of Ghana, which achieved its independence in 1957 from its colonial master, the United Kingdom. It celebrated 50 years in 2007, and is projecting itself fast and furiously as "gateway to West Africa".

It's an exciting city, with its unique problems, but with it close to the Atlantic ocean, and many beaches, who can resist coming here?

Wanna Get some Money? Meet the Truly West African Bank, ECOBANK !


ECOBANK is the sixth largest bank in the country. Not only that, it has consistently won the award for the best bank at the Ghana Banking Awards. It won it for the fourth time this year, for IT infrastructure, among other things. I am no-PR man for the bank, but it is true to say that it pioneered ATM services in the country, with the "VISA" brand a few years ago.

It has thirteen branches in the West African sub-region, including Cameroon. It's major shareholder is the West African sub-regional organisation the "Economic Community of West African States", whose website who can find here. Established in 1985, it is, in effect, a truly, indigenous West African bank that is going places. For more, you can read http://www.ecobank.com/english/group/expansion.aspx?RubID=3&SRubID=1&SSRubID=7.

Suffice to say that I am a proud customer of the bank:-)

enjoy!

And it is not owned by one of the big multinational banks? I am impressed.

sam--any place could be better, but let me just say I am certainly enjoying it:-)

louise--nope, not at all. Comprehensively West African;-)By all means, the technology is Western and Asia-based, though.

Dutchie--tell me about it!:-) There is some value in the awards though in the sense that it compels banks to do their utmost each year. Thanks for visiting!
