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?

Strange Signboards near Accra-Tema Motorway...Shame on Corporate Ghana!

I love the Accra-Tema motorway--and not just because it's Ghana's historical legacy to its people, having been established since 1964 by the BBC's greatest African of the twentieth century Dr.Kwame Nkrumah.

It's the route I like to take to cross to the the much-blogged-about Accra Mall--every day after work.

I decided to catch these signs for one reason--the bottom line.

These signs advertising BARCLAYS BANK; MTN; and PIERRE CARDIN are so out of place and out of touch it's not funny. The route is calling for a foot bridge so desperately, as an increasing number of Ghanaians--and foreigners--use that very convenient shortcut to cross from Accra Mall to East Legon.

Instead of authorities of the Accra Metropolitan Assembly realising [is that what local metropolitan authorities do?] that there are serious risks and dangers associated with the Accra-Tema motorway, it seems like they want accidents before they do something about it. Even then, I wonder.

I point the finger primarily at the AMA; and secondly to the above-mentioned companies that are seeking nothing more than the bottom line! You don't mind Ghanaians taking risks to cross the road to MTN or whatever, yet you are less inclined to advocate safety first!

Shame on you three!

(Nana Yaw, I appreciate your discerning eye for my paradoxes--I guess this takes the biscuit!)
