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?

Welcome (Akwabaa) to GOIL Filling Station!

This is what it says on its nicely-designed website here:

Ghana Oil Company Limited (GOIL) was established on 14th June 1960 under the Companies Ordinance (CAP 193) as AGIP Ghana Limited with AGIP S.P.A of Italy having 855,000 shares and SNAM SPA also of Italy with 95,000 shares. On the 16th December 1968 the 95,000-shares were transferred to Hydrocarbons International Holdings of Zurich. The Company is now fully owned by the government of Ghana which acquired it in 1974. Ministry of Energy represents the government in all its dealings with the Company

I have always wondered why filling stations have websites, but I guess in these days of one, they wonder "why not"? Either way, I have to admit that it's rather fortuitous that I should find this on my desktop somewhere, because three years back home, working professionally, and here I was totally oblivious to this website!!

This picture was taken on the Spintex Road

The "Nanteyie" you see means "drive safely, goodbye!"
