I Am Alive Challenge Day #74 - November 20 2020
ENTRANCE TO THE ACCRA COLLEGE OF EDUCATION
I didn’t go to work today. Ghana has elections on the 7th of December and I had applied to be one of the electoral officers. I applied to be a presiding officer but the person in charge of it wouldn’t give it to me. I applied to be a presiding officer during the Voters registration exercise and I was unavailable. Due to that, he says he’s no longer going to give me that position during the elections. What I was given was ballot issuer, which means I issue ballot papers to prospective voters. The training was held at the Accra College of Education.
THE CLASSROOM WHERE THE TRAINING WAS HELD
I woke up early as always. Brushed my teeth, took my bath and had my breakfast. Official starting time for the training was 8am and I left the house at 7:30. I hurriedly got to the venue at 8:30am thinking I was late only to realize that nothing had started. At 9:30, we were divided into groups for the training, and the training began at 10am. By 12 noon, we were done with the training. They are supposed to give us transportation and lunch, but those were yet to arrive. At 2 o’clock in the afternoon, the transportation had arrived and it was distributed to us, we were now waiting for the food.
CAFETERIA ON THE CAMPUS
At 2:30pm, I decided to no longer wait for the food. It had taken too long and I wanted to go and visit someone. I left the training grounds around that time, leaving my food behind. I got into a bus and left for my friends place. I got there at 4:30pm. This is the friend who was broken-hearted on Tuesday, but she’s over it today. She’s doing much better. I bought rice at her place and we ate together. Unfortunate, I forgot to snap any photos of her or the food. I only took pictures on my way there. I left her place at 8:30 and got home a little after 10pm.
