It’s interesting how Ghana is becoming the toast of international media coverage. Before writing this piece I was wondering why the foreign press are now trooping into the country to have some stories from here. Is it because Ghana has found what most refers to as “BLACK GOLD” oil in commercial quantity at Cape Three Point? Or could it also be that or beloved country is meeting the expectations of the western powers and the world powerful financial institutions like the World Bank and the IMF? Well we’ll find out later.
But hey folks! My friends from Slovenia National Televison RTV-SLO National TV led by one of their renowned broadcast journalist Helena Milinkovic were in country to film an EU co-sponsored documentary titled ‘Raising Awareness of the development Impact of our lifestyles between Ghana and the People of Slovenia”, which would be telecast in Slovenia and other European Union Member States beginning from May 2010. The shooting took place in different locations from the ten regions of Ghana. The team for the first week hit their first location which happens to be a shanty town within the capital city -Sodom and Gomorrah and ended up in the Nzema East District in the Western region where the team visited Nkroful the birth place of Ghana first president Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, they met the District Chief Executive Mr. O.B Eshun and the Member of Parlaiment for Ellembelle Constituency who also double as the Deputy Minister of Energy in charge of Petroleum Hon. Armah Kofi-Buah. He took the Slovenian team around his constituency and exposed some magnificent tourist sites including a newly developed Resort situated in between the sea and a lake to them.
