Genuine Land for Sale in the City of Accra

Wonderful Accra! The city where you have to purchase the same strip of land twice or thrice, even after you have employed a lawyer, a private eye and bribery to ensure that you obtain laager land and not a lame, leaky lawsuit.

I was driving with Office Female #2, when we espied a dingy display board with the words “Genuine Land for Sale”. It says a lot that that wasted plank did not simply say “Land for Sale”. Should I expect to see another carelessly confess “Fake Land for Sale”?


  1. hahaha. Nice observation. You also have those posters "this house is NOT for sale!" ?

  2. Yes, Adaeze, we have those too! "This house is not for sale!"

  3. Saw an intriguing one the other day... "This land belongs to Lawyer... keep off!" As if the indication of the supposed owner's profession would indeed be enough warning to intending trespassers.

  4. I know what you mean. It could have been worse. With our national history, it could have been worse. It could have been Flight Lieutenant or Major or something like that!
