On 6th of March 1957 Ghana became the first Sub-Saharan country to gain independence from colonial rule. 57 years on, Ghana has survived as an independent state and continues to be a beacon of hope for all. Ghana has managed to hold on to its promise of Democracy, with its recent manifestation being the legal and orderly way the election petition was conducted.
The love of Ghana is what binds Ghanaians together across the world. Our humility and steadfastness is what drives us to work towards the betterment of Ghana.
Although Ghana’s economy faces one of its toughest time since independence, brought on by the devaluation of the Cedi and an overall price hike, there is no doubt that the Ghanaian spirit and strive will overcome.
GUBA and the GUBA Foundation, on behalf of Ghanaians in the UK and the Diaspora, will like to wish Mother Ghana a Happy 57th Independence Day. Though we face one of the hardest years ahead, we forever remain strong and undeterred. We envision a superbly functional and prosperous Ghana in the coming years.
So on this day, may we celebrate all that is good about Ghana, as we reminisce about our journey so far, let us all be vigilant and resourceful for the years to come.
Happy 57th Ghana Independence!!!
A Public-Private Partnership (PPP) bill will be presented to the Ghanaian parliament by the end of March. The bill is expected to mobilise private sector support for significant infrastructure works including stalled road and ports projects, and the launch of a new national airline.
Magdalene Apenteng, director of the Public Investment Division of Ghana’s finance ministry, stated that the proposed legislation would offer a long-term solution to infrastructure challenges “without overburdening the government budget”. She added that the PPP supported by the World Bank, would address a number of projects which had been delayed because of inadequate funding and planning. These included improvements to and the extension of the motorway linking Accra with the harbour city of Tema, expanding the port of Takoradi, on Ghana’s South Western coast, and establishing a new national airline.
Ghana’s transport minister Dzifa Ativor also mentioned that the country needed a successor to Ghana International Airlines, which suspended operations in 2010. She said the government would collaborate with the private sector to establish a new carrier.
A report published in October 2013 by professional services firm PwC said Ghana’s transport infrastructure needed to be upgraded to meet the needs of a middle-income country. “Following the successful commercialisation of its oil reserves, Ghana is in a position to raise additional public funding for infrastructure from its increased fiscal receipts and thus to address the country’s infrastructure needs” – They added.
