Ghana Africa’s last hope at the World Cup came home this week to a tumultuous welcome. Even though Asamoah Gyan caused heartbreak by failing to score the goal which would have taken the first African team to a world cup semi yet he was hailed at home as a hero.
Ghanaian President Prof. Atta Mills said by their action they had made the Ghanaian flag become recognised far and wide in the world.
But the Ghanaian government was responsive to its citizens needs. They provided open air viewing for countless numbers of Ghanaians who otherwise would have found it difficult to come up with the tens of cedis demanded by commercial viewing centres.
Large LCD screens in the centre of town drew massive crowds of the less privileged.
Here at home (SL) the Large LCD screens at Eastend Police and Lumley stand blank after government directed they be shut down.
LCD screens -the future in digital advertising which is present in most developed and developing cities including up and coming African cities seems an unacceptable feature here.
Indeed as the World Cup ends what we ban is what Ghanaians, Nigerians and others enjoy freely.
