      OJ, you never stop proving that you’re an idiot.

      • Get rid of de currupt leaders and utilize de wealth of Africa heal their problems.

        • Attitude Of Gratitude says:

          As much as it pains me to admit it, your right! You get a like for that one.

        • Come Correct says:

          That’s pretty funny since you still like them as the opposition.

    • Stinky D says:

      Bermuda Unite

    • A Chap called Vanz says:

      Wouldn’t be independent then!

    • Amazing it gets dislikes, a country where civilizations and Kingdoms where in existance for thousands of years before the Colonial countries that they become Independent from which benefitted from precious minerals, animals for zoos and people for FREE labour to enhance their own countries.
      And you dislike for a statement of unification. Is Europe unified??????????????

      • puzzled says:

        You contradict yourself with your own comments Juice.

        Save the inflammation for when the election is called.

      • Come Correct says:

        Africans got…no sorry let me use your words…stole their own free labour too. Your argument is invalid.

        • bdaboy says:

          “Africans got…no sorry let me use your words…stole their own free labour too. Your argument is invalid.”

          They pick and chose history the same way they follow their bibles.

          Always playing the victim, never any honesty.

  2. Acegurl says:

    I thought this was Bermuda! What about Bermuda unite?

    • Well when you look at Bermuda’s History and who has been disenfranchised for generations and are always fighting to be included socially and economically because of Historical exclusion, and always extending de olive branch, how do you think we should unite?
      Tic Toc

    • PBanks says:

      I think because the article is about Ghana, it’s relevant to talk about Africa.

  3. Dorothy says:

    God bless our Homeland Ghana and make our nation great and strong. Amen

    • Africa IS and ALWAYS be Great, its just a matter of re-writng the wrongs of past exploitation and greed.
      We were de envy of the world in pre-slavery days.
      Mighty Worriors, Great Kings and Queens, wealth that is unmeasurable and land that is infinate.
      Dont believe de hype
      Africa is GREAT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ghana criminalises homosexuality. When Ghana is ready to grow up and behave in a humane way to all people, maybe we can celebrate. Right now it’s just another sh!t hole full of bigots.

    • All of de African Countries do (except South Africa,Mmmm) Europeans need to realize that you cant force a lifestyle on a Culture that has been Historically opposed to it.

      • bdaboy says:

        “you cant force a lifestyle on a Culture that has been Historically opposed to it.”

        Wow, such a bigot you are.
        Homosexuality is a lifestyle, just like slavery is.

    • PBanks says:

      You could say that about any country – many have issues that need major addressing, but celebrating independence is a good and positive thing, no matter what nation.

  5. wahoo says:

    So I read up a bit and since going independent Ghana has had many struggles most caused by power struggles which is a shame because that was not the intent of Nkrumah. One article I read said that “soon the euphoria of independence wore off…” euphoria is good while it lasts I guess., Nkrumah ended up in exile.

    I wish Ghana stability and success in the future.

    • Most African countries are like that in Post-Colonialism.

      • puzzled says:

        Like Bermuda will be once the PLP get back in power.

      • Attitude Of Gratitude says:

        Yea…Blame Colonialism for “all” the ills of a country. Don’t expect them to actually take responsibility here and now in 2017.

  6. bdaboy says:

    Always celebrate countries that hang their gays…like isis does.

    • Do you celebrate America, who did more hanging then them?
      And if you steal in some countries you lose a hand, do I agree with it, no.

      • bdaboy says:

        “Do you celebrate America”

        No, what a stupid question.

        “who did more hanging then them?”

        Africa

        “And if you steal in some countries you lose a hand, do I agree with it, no.”

        Too bad you’re not intelligent enough to carry on a conversation.

    • sage says:

      Ain’t heard gays, or anyone here for that matter, calling out Dooturd of the Phillipines ordering the murder of “anyone involved with drugs” where over 7000 destitute “drug addicts” have been summarily executed without due process over the last 9 months.

      • bdaboy says:

        “Ain’t heard gays, or anyone here for that matter, calling out Dooturd of the Phillipines ”

        ‘ain’t’ heard any Bermudians calling him out either….did you have a point?

  7. Rasta says:

    And now Ghana is in poverty.

    • Most of Africa is after being raped and plundered by Europe and controlled by corrupt dictators, what else do you expect?

      • bdaboy says:

        “Most of Africa is after being raped and plundered by Europe”

        still revising history to suit yourself?
        How pathetic.
        Africans rape and plunder africans…your people are to blame.

        • PBanks says:

          bdaboy, aren’t you whitewashing things here? European interests profited a ton from mining and exploiting resources in African nations.

          Certainly, the colonial era for African (and Caribbean/Latin American) nations wasn’t some glorious time of prosperity for the majority of the population.

          And while yes, post-independence many countries suffered from poor leadership, that doesn’t excuse the fact that the colonizers played a big role in the disenfranchisement of the local populace.

          • bdaboy says:

            “bdaboy, aren’t you whitewashing things here? European interests profited a ton from mining and exploiting resources in African nations.”

            Africans profited from the sale of their fellow countrymen as slaves…why do you all whitewash that fact?

          • bdaboy says:

            “bdaboy, aren’t you whitewashing things here? European interests profited a ton from mining and exploiting resources in African nations.”

            Africans profited from the sale of their fellow countrymen as slaves…why do you all whitewash that fact?

    • PBanks says:

      Should Ghanaians not celebrate independence because they’re not a wealthy nation? Is there a economic line at which it’s okay to celebrate and take pride in your country? Is it okay if you’re say Bahrain? South Korea?
