Ghana gained its independence from the British on the 6th of March, 1957 with Kwame Nkrumah as its first Prime Minister.
Today, the 1st of July, marks the 50th anniversary of the day Ghana became a Republic gaining complete autonomy with Kwame Nkrumah taking over as its first President.
We take this opportunity to wish all Ghanaians a happy Republic Day and may the celebrations flow into tomorrow when the country has the opportunity to become the first African nation to reach the semi finals of the football World Cup! It will be a mighty weekend if and when Ghana do reach the semis!! Go Ghana!!
