    On March 6, 1957, Ghana became the first country in Africa south of the Sahara to gain independence from colonial rule. 2007, marks 50 years of independence.

    The theme for the anniversary is:
    Championing African Excellence.


    Ghana’s first President, Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, envisioned this country as the guiding light of African independence and solidarity -- the BLACK STAR, the lodestar of Africa. Ghana’s attainment of independence and the subsequent ideological support it extended to other colonized countries on the continent, culminated in the emancipation of many of these countries from colonial rule.

    There are three main objectives for the jubilee celebrations. They are:

    To celebrate and commemorate Ghana’s landmark achievement as the first country in Black Africa to attain independence from colonial rule;

    To reflect on the evolution, development, achievements and drawbacks of our country over the past fifty (50) years; and

    To look forward to the future, to our vision of excellence in all fields of endeavour in the next fifty (50) years toward our centenary birthday as a nation.​

    President's Message

    President's Message

    President John A. Kufour:
    "However much we differ on issues, there are moments, which should bring us together. One such moment is the Golden Jubilee of our nation’s independence.

    We should rejoice in the fact that in spite of many periods of uncertainty and difficulties in the last 50 years, we have managed to pull together as a nation to this day. ..."
