The educated are all living in Accra


You can say that again and again and again and again and AGAIN! The educated not only live in Accra and stay away permanently, but also they build in Accra and sever all ties with their towns and villages in the north. Even MPs of prominent constituencies such as Wa Central return on a need-to-visit basis only (mostly to attend an important funeral or a must-attend party conference), even as, or especially because, the electorate returns them mechanically and mindlessly to parliament at every opportunity - as if returning them was an obligatory religious duty. It is the most incredible thing; it's the most implausible situation. Conservative estimates put the number of doctors who are of Upper Western origin at about 500. I leave it to an informed commenter to tell us the patient to doctor ratio in these parts.
