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 Passport...here!


This is an appropriate picture for an appropriate mood--my passport is ready! After, erm, three months of waiting. It went for renewal, and I am no longer identity-less. There is talk that Ghana will be going biometric insofar as these documents are concerned. How quickly and how soon is moot!

A report from Ghana Online maintains:


Government will introduce a new Ghanaian passport next year in line with a directive of the International Civil Aviation Organisation, Vice President Aliu Mahama announced in London on Sunday.
He said the processing of passports had suffered security problem over the years, hence the need for a new one.

Vice President Mahama dropped this hint at a reception organised by the Ghana High Commission for him as part of his two-day official visit to the United Kingdom.

To back Alhaji Mahama’s announcement, the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Regional Co-operation and NEPAD, Dr. Charles Brempong-Yeboah disclosed that the 2007/2008 budget had made provisions for the new passport.

He observed that his ministry had put in place the necessary mechanisms to check the fraudulent acquisition of Ghanaian passports by nationals and non-nationals.

The measures include the adoption of a biometric passport, which has peculiar features such as fingerprints and other personal features to make the country's passport distinct.(...)



Just so you're wondering how old the news is, you can see it here: as 19 Feb, 2008.
