Remember “Eze Goes To School” back in the day? Well, here is a modern version: Mister Mobility Goes To Ghana. Yes; I was in Accra, Ghana as a guest of the organisers of the West Africa Telecom Summit 2014. The conference held at Mövenpick Ambassador Hotel in Accra, and I was part of the very interesting VAS (value added Service) Panel alongside, Kofi Dadzie of Rancard and Simon Aderinlola of WASPA-Nigeria.

It was an interesting trip, and I have stories of how Glo disappointed me on arrival, and how MTN came to my rescue, as well as the Nokia X. I will share those stories in another blogpost after I have had enough sleep. I keep sleeping like a pregnant woman…

Meanwhile, I remember the less hectic pace of life in Accra. I remember the better organisation of things compared to Lagos. I remember using the headquarters of a bank as a thoroughfare without any security men in sight. I remember seeing shopping malls open and running at 11.45pm. I also remember how I was unable to use the WiFi at the hotel where I was lodged. I am told it is a Windows 8 compatibility issue (believable, as I hate Windows 8 from experience). I remember running into Emeka Okoye at the hotel and how he knows everywhere and everyone in Accra. His insights came in handy.

Yes; the above photo is of yours truly after arrival at Accra airport on Friday. This was my second time in Accra. The first time was a family holiday some years ago. Anyway, expect the details of the exciting mobile adventures of Mister Mo in Ghana – starring Nokia X, Glo and MTN. There are some side casts too. But for now, I’m going back to bed…
