When I got a chance to visit #Accra, #Ghana, I was excited because I had a training to attend to(it was dope) & a chance to tour the city. My Joy was short lived in other aspects.
Short thread.
@exploregh @tv3_ghana @Okyeamekwame @MOTACGhana

(Part 1)
One thing that I disliked the most about my stay in Accra, Ghana was the overall customer service attitude.It was for lack of a better word,0/10.

Compared to Kenya or the other places I have been, the overall attitude was messed up to the core...
(Part 2)
I got annoyed on the first day,the second day then I just gave up and put up with the crappy treatment...till I left...

Let's start with the airport.So when one disabled it's always safer to ask for wheelchair assistance to save one from the frustration..

Big news from the latest @UN report on #ISIS/#alQaida was ISIS' rebuild strategy and that much of it is being directed by Abu Bakr al-#Baghdadi out of Iraq

But there are a number of other interesting observations in the report...
On #alQaida, the @UN intelligence suggests the group although the health of AQ leader Ayman al-Zawahiri & AQ's succession plan "are in doubt"
The @UN report also concludes #alQaida-aligned groups "are stronger than their #ISIL [#ISIS] counterparts in #Idlib, #Syria|n Arab Republic, #Yemen, #Somalia and much of West #Africa"

Ghana is set to grant citizenship to 200 African Americans as part of celebrations of the 'Year of Return 2019’.

The occasion would mark the 400th anniversary of the arrival of the first African slaves in America
#africanamerican #black #ADOS #caribbean #slavetrade #repatriation
The government of Ghana launched the “Year of Return, Ghana 2019” as part of efforts to encourage African Americans and the black diaspora to return to the homeland where their ancestors were kidnapped and sold into slavery many centuries ago.

In 2000, Ghana passed the “Right of Abode” law making it the first African country to officially open its doors to people of African descent from all over the world.

The law allows any person of African descent to apply and be granted the right to stay in Ghana indefinitely.

In a week where the North East got yet another military commander, we got a better look at overburdened infrastructure.

Elsewhere, as MTN gears up to enter the banks’ turf, concern over Nigeria's food import practices conjures a picture of a recently painted but creaking house.
The @MTNGroup's announcement is a positive for #Nigeria's economy as it substantiates previous comments by MTN that it has no plans to exit Nigeria despite its spat with @cenbank over alleged illegal fund repatriation.
The announcement ties into @MTNGroup’s strategy to become the biggest provider of mobile financial services in #Africa.

The telecoms-led drive to provide mobile money services will introduce a new interesting chapter in #Nigeria’s financial services sector.

D'accord, vous l'avez bien cherché : je vais vous faire une histoire toute illustrée et chatoyante du #wax, ce tissu que (selon ce que #RokhayaDiallo a dit au #Feministival) les « blanches » n'auraient pas le droit de porter sans culpabiliser

3, 2, 1 : petit voyage dans le temps et nous voilà en 1637, quand la Compagnie néerlandaise des Indes occidentales s'empara du port d'Elmina sur la Côte d'Or (aujourd'hui #Ghana), détenu depuis 1471 par les Portugais.
À Elmina il n'y avait pas de wax, mais de l'or, de la maniguette et des esclaves, beaucoup d'esclaves.

Aso Rock picked on the bankers of the opposition in a busy week that also saw it acting coy on personal civil liberties and rolling the carpet for two of the EU’s most powerful leaders. All these occurred while cocoa simply could not find its way to the country’s main ports.
@officialEFCC’s interest in @ZenithBank’s transactions involving @riversstategov signals a willingness on the part of @MBuhari's administration to focus on the latter given its pre-eminence in the political architecture of the opposition @OfficialPDPNig.
@riversstategov has emerged as the hub and financial nerve centre of @OfficialPDPNig – a position that has seen its governor, @Gov_Wike, as one of the most important figures within the party's ranks, if not its most influential kingmaker.

#Russia-n mercenaries are now showing up everywhere in #Africa: one country in particular is the #CAR where Russians are also providing weapons. Also present in the #Niger Delta of #Nigeria actually helping the rebels that target the western oil companies.
Fascinating story on how #Russia entered the #CAR. It was blocking a delivery of weapons from #France to #Bangui so #Macron told CAR President to go and convince Russia to unblock the sale. Instead Russia saw an opportunity to sell its own weapons to CAR.
3 #Russian journalists killed in #CAR while filming #Wagner, the private military firm run by Evgeny #Prigozhin used especially in #Syria, part of #Putin's inner circle. Documentary was part of @tzurrealism, supported by Mikhail #Khodorkovsky.
