    HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YA!!.. ‎Ghana ([​IMG]i/ˈɡɑːnə/), officially the Republic of Ghana, is a country in West Africa. It is bordered by Ivory Coast to the west, Burkina Faso to the north, Togo to the east and the Gulf of Guinea to the south. The word Ghana means "Warrior King" and is derived from the ancient Ghana Empire.
    hana was inhabited in pre-colonial times by a number of ancient predominantly Akan kingdoms, including the inland Ashanti Empire, the Akwamu, the Akyem, the Bonoman, the Denkyira and the Fante among others. Non-Akan states created by the Ga also existed as did states by the Dagomba. Prior to contact with Europeans trade between the Akan and various African states flourished due to Akan gold wealth. Trade with European states began after contact with the Portuguese in the 15th century, and the British established the Gold Coast Crown colony in 1874 over parts but not all of the country.
    The Gold Coast achieved independence from the United Kingdom's colonial rule in 1957,becoming the first African nation to do so. A global poll found that Ghana was the most religious country in the world.
    Ghana is a member of the South Atlantic Peace and Cooperation Zone, the United Nations, the Commonwealth of Nations, the African Union, the Economic Community of West African States, and an associate member of La Francophonie. Ghana is one of the largest cocoa producers in the world,[11] and is also home to Lake Volta, the largest artificial lake in the world by surface area.

    Ghana didn't "gain independence", the Euro-Neanderthals let you have it. Never feel happy because your adversary GIVES you something. It's just like if somebody beats you over the head, and steals your "rasta shirt and hat" wears the hell out of it then said I'm going to GIVE YOU your shirt/hat back.
