Abstract: Rainfall is an essential resource for socio-economic activities especially in developing countries. I Rainfall variability in Sub-Saharan Africa has been reported by Owusu et al. (2012), Nicholson et al. (2003), Amekudzi et al. (2015). I To improve our understanding of the spatio-temporal variations of rainfall rigourous validation has been carried out all over the world by comparing in-situ measurements with satellite estimates. (Friesen 2002; Amekudzi et al., 2011; Adeyewa and Nakamura 2003; Haque et al., 2013). I In the tropics, the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) has been specifically dedicated to monitoring rainfall intensity and distribution
