Ghana @ 55 – Ready for business

I am currently working with a couple of colleagues on a project about the business environment of Ghana to pitch to potential investors, well, classmates.

It is one of the highlights of my semester so far and as the date for presentation approaches I feel extra proud that my colleagues are genuinely sold on the huge opportunities for business in Ghana.

So I put up the draft presentation in celebration of Ghana’s 55th independence.

For students or business persons who do a lot of presentation, you will find that is a great presentation tool.

Please comment if you are not able to access my presentation.

Happy Independence Day! Happy Holiday!! I am proud to be a Ghanaian!!!

Craigslist gh – Gold bar and dust for sale GHS999999

An observation!!

I’ve been prowling on Craigslist lately in search of affordable accommodation as I made plans to relocate and was drawing my budget.

Just recently I checked to see if any interesting rooms were available but I was automatically redirected to Craigslist gh and I must say I was pleasantly surprised to find my sweet ACCRA has its own corner on craigslist.

This surprise was soon replaced by a knowing smile when I saw that about a quarter of the postings were either “gold for sale”, “gold bar and dust for sale” or some other combination of the words ‘sale’ and ‘gold’ and/ or ‘diamond’.

Shaking my head, I said to myself –


Now, if you’ve been following some of the international press corporations, you might be aware of some allegations Craigslist faced for its usage as an escort service (and the ban of its such usage in the USA). There’s been a recent case of a stalker/killer who used Craigslist to pick his victims.

To keep it’s numerous users aware of the lurking dangers of meeting people to conclude sales, exchanges and just meet up, there are a number of Alerts –

on the homepage.

But after seeing all the gold and precious mineral sales offers, I believe for Craigslist Ghana there should be a special alert..something that reads:

  • To purchase gold or any precious minerals in Ghana, please contact PMMC!!

Can we say it is only a matter of time before the stories of scams will start filtering in?
