I tried to send this to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs but their server seems to have a way of rejecting anything that criticizes them. Please forward.

Please do something about that faded affair which the Lagos mission flies and calls a flag. It is not befitting our nation. I was in the USA last May to attend my nephew's graduation at the University of Pennsylvania and the flag the university provided, because a son of Ghana was passing out, made my heart beat with pride.

Whether or not I'm married to a Nigerian, I still remain a Ghanaian and will always be. Do we need a university in rural Pennsylvania to teach us what is right? Provide us with a swashbuckling banner that will make us all feel proud!
