Ghana is a place for comfort and peace even though its expensive place to live in. Stable economy,good roads. Ghana of now is like Nigeria in the 90s. I have been living here since 2018 and ever since i left Lagos Nigeria,my life has been so peaceful. Although Ghana is not as beautiful as Nigeria,nor neither are they richer than Nigeria but there is a system that is working here. Ghana is a freedom country, no police harassment. God blessed the day I left the shores of Nigeria.

Do Nigerians need resident permit to stay in Ghana or they cab just travel down and stay freely?

Ghana to Nigeria is Visa free. If you stay in Ghana more than 90 days, your are stay becomes illegal. Black foreigners enter Ghana without a passport, however it's illegal

Here in Ghana, white people come to market to buy stuffs for themselves. They also enter public buses.

Not an achievement or remotely close to anything remarkable as it is the case in most African countries.

I'm more interested in how good and organised public transportation is in Ghana. Care to illustrate with pics?

The Op said for 10 days and counting electricity has been stable and uninterrupted.

This is something Nigerians not even those living in affluent neighborhoods like Lekki and Maitama can only dream of.

So yes in this aspect its doing way better than Nigeria.

And the op move round the whole ghana to arrive at that.

I'm in a state of epiphany, i never thought that Nigeria start in lekki and end in maitama, do you want me to remind you that Ghana has thirty million people and that is more than six times Nigeria population.

And in your dream, you don't believe that thirty million no Nigeria don't have good supply of electricity.

You can keep licking ghana ass as you lick, but i don't think there are better than Nigeria.

1. I never said it was, you did by putting words into my mouth.

2. Tell us the area in Nigeria that enjoys such stable power supply. I will fact-checked it asap.

3. The biggest joke of the day - a random Nairanlander calling me names just for stating the obvious.

Says alot about the type of person you are.

When you compare what's happening in a village in your state to judge a city in Ghana that's not good enough.

It's a normal thing in Abuja also.

What else do you need in a country than Good roads, stable electricity, no pressure to be rich unlike Nigeria where young peeps keep committing suicide because the pressure are so much high , I have spent my lifetime in Nigeria and only spent 11 days now in Ghana and i am convinced it’s better than Nigeria so far and while you who prolly haven’t even gone to 10 states in Nigeria tankless of traveling out of your comfort zone keep yarning that it’s better than Ghana because someone posted a picture ... No wonder Doctors are now on strike while Buhari flew abroad for his medical treatment... A very stable light and i can’t even see Nepa Bill ( asked someone and they said they use a meter or something) or Nepa going up and down at least i arrived month ending(April 23) if it was in Nigeria na that same day I go see Nepa with 100k + Bill while person no get light reach 10 days out of 30 days in a month! Omo no Generator sound, no stupid horns everywhere on the road .

Well keep being Patriotic, I was once being like that until they killed my fellow citizens at Lekki Toll Gate.

It’s well

I am just being surprised at how far our country have been left behind by other African countries . And to be sincere i didn’t know Ghana currency supersedes our Naira. A 100 Cedes is almost equivalent to 10 thousand naira .. meaning 1 cedes is 100 naira .

Naira just useless like anything
I came here with Naira and I really regretted doing so
The currency is redonminated don't be dumb

With all due respect you are still using a rural village in Nigeria to compare Accra the capital of Ghana.
Nigeria may not be perfect but not bad as you are painting it.
The only country in West Africa you can say is more advanced is Ivory Coast.

That dude is being stupid not patriotic. There is fine line between patriotism and stupidity.

By the way, could you believe Armed forces of many African countries Kenya and Senegal included are equipped with a sophisticated riffle called M4A1 carbine while our infantry soldiers on the front lines are equipped with celotaped AK-47s? .

According to a recent report Nigerian military spent around 2.5 trillion in arms procurement, with nothing to show for.

Where has all this money went to? Who were the culprits? Why were they not brought to book? These are questions that need answers.

For you to live here legally,you need the legal document which is your resident permit.

Yes there are Nigerians I know that do not have legal documents but they have been here over a decade.

That is upto you,do you want to live here legally? If yes,you need to prove it via your documents,if u chose to come and stay here without papers,as long as you are not into any crime, the immigration or police will not disturb you, Ghana is an expensive place to live in. Like I said before,Ghana is a freedom nation.

This is not true,If you live outside Nigeria legally, you have 80% of obtaining any visa in the world with ease.
