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?

Ghana's Flagstaff House Shrouded in Controversy


As far as my searching has gone, there exists no coherent entry on what the Flagstaff House is in Ghana. Even wikipedia has no entry on it--except the one in Hong Kong, which bears the same name.

Suffice-to-say, it was supposed to be the seat of government, as prescribed by the our first President Osagyefo Dr.Kwame Nkrumah. However, off-late, it has been the subject of controversy, because Stanbic Bank--the very bank that wants to take over the shares of Ghana's only Agricultural Development Bank is now providing a loan for the re-construction of Flagstaff House. All this against much criticism from the minority National Democratic Congress in Parliament.

Now, please follow this logic:
1. Stanbic Bank wants to buy off Ghana's Agricultural Development Bank (responsible for providing micro-financing for farmers in the country)

2. Against the backdrop and furore against the purchase by Stanbic, it decides...

3. to provide a loan for the re-construction of Ghana's seat of government

Do I smell

desperation

by Stanbic to profit from Ghana here?

Certainly, not in my name, thankyou!!
