Trials & Tribulations of a Freshly-Arrived Denizen...of Ghana Reflecting the Eccentric World of E.K.Bensah Jr

Let's start with the number plate: whenever you see a Ghana number plate with "CR", it means that the car was registered in the Central Region. Offlate, one sees very few of CR-registered cars in Accra. I wonder why...
Either way, the poster is clear for all to see. Like the much-watched US elections, Ghana's election year is also in 2008, with voting starting on 7 December. Over the weekend, Ghana's Electoral Commission re-launched its website to remind Ghanaian citizens to remain vigilant about voting peacefully and lawfully. The site can be found here: http://www.ec.gov.gh/.
If all that is Greek to you, many apologies for not reminding you that Cape Coast is the capital of the Central Region, and used to be the capital of Ghana before its independence in 1957.
It might interest you to know that, thanks to Ghana's first President Dr.Kwame Nkrumah who built secondary schools at breakneck pace in the 1950s and 1960s, Cape Coast plays host to some of the best schools that spawn some of the brightest graduates in the country. These schools are reputable ones in Ghana and include:
* Wesley Girls' High School
* St. Augustine College
* Adisadel College (ADISCO)
* Aggrey Memorial AME Secondary School (AGGREY)
* Ghana National College (GHANACOLL)
* Holy Child Secondary
* Cape Coast Technical Institute (CAPETECH).
