This week, I have the opportunity of being in Ghana and can see definitely that someone was very confused (or desperate to remain consistent in his/her fallacious claims) when they placed Ghana in a different time zone from Nigeria.
We took off from Abuja around 6pm GMT+1 and landed in Accra around 7.30 GMT+1. The degree of daylight/darkness felt just like 7.30pm in Nigeria (though the airport clocks said 6.30) and I commented about it but Sekyen said it might be a “longer night” day. Still convinced that someone made a mistake several years ago, I refused to adjust my clock.
The next morning, my regular (GMT+1) alarm went off at 6.30am and I looked out the window and I thought “There’s no way the day can be so bright at 5.30am!”
Still unconvinced that there is a difference in time zones, I’m leaving my clocks unchanged. One advantage here is I’m 1 hour late for everything and nobody notices
