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?

West African Corporates Leading the Way in Ghana?

When I took this random picture on Ghana's Ring Road, it was more of a serendipitous one, hoping to capture a snapshot of life there.

Instead, I unwittingly and fortuitously caught the logos of no less than two West-African-based corporate brands.

GLO, clad in green, is a 100% Nigerian mobile telecommunications company, which recently launched its broadband service--Glo 1--a few weeks ago in Ghana.

"ECOBANK"--a brand that is no stranger to this blog--is based in Togo, just next door to Ghana. Thankfully, this minimalist description belies its reach: it is represented in no less than 30 countries, and started off as a bank for West Africa, with support from the West African Chamber of Commerce. These days, it has expanded astronomically, diversifying into brokerage services; investments, etc.

It recently opened a China desk to take care of increasing Chinese investments in the country. It has an office in Dubai, and France!

Simply put: it's only a matter of time before the West African private sector goes this space!
