May God bless #Dr #Kwame #nkrumah for opening door way to Ghana #independence. As a leader of this government, #Nkrumah faced many challenges: first, to learn to govern; second, to unify the four territories of the Gold Coast; third, to win his nation’s complete independence from the United Kingdom. #Nkrumah was successful at all three goals. Within six years of his release from prison, he was the leader of an independent nation.At 12 a.m. on 6 March 1957, Nkrumah declared Ghana independent. The country became #independent as a Commonwealth realm. He was hailed as the #Osagyefo - which means “redeemer” in the Twi language.
