Well! Well!! Well!!! Its Ghana’s birthday again and this time Ghana is 53 years old. As beautiful as always, Maame Ghana will put on her colourful kente cloth and wear her sweet scented perfume of peace, love and progress.

As Ghanaians celebrate the 53rd birthday of mother Ghana, she would in turn shower her blessings upon US. But the major questions still remain. Are We There Yet????????????

This is also time for Maame Ghana to reflect on her past and access herself whether she have achieved her plan scheduled for the past 53 years. As she was called before the arrival of the white man, Gold Coast, that was her name.

A very rich gorgeous lady who has been blessed with all forms of wealth. But her doom days began when her own sons and daughters betrayed her and took to different life style which brought her progress to a standstill.

Numerous Coups d’tat rocked her shores and the effect was felt by her neighbors. It has taken mother Ghana so many years to put on her beautiful cloth of peace, harmony and progress again.

Though with about 20 years of mother Ghana’s life seeing fast developmental growth like; roads, proper education system, freedom of worship and speech as well as other vital systems like multi-party democracy.

With all these achievements within this short memorable time. The unity of the children of Maame Ghana has been questioned by her neighbours and her colonial masters who failed to milk her dry over 53 years ago.

May be this 53rd birthday celebration should be used as a fine opportunity for mother Ghana to gather her children and appeal to them to unite since unity does not only make her richer but also make her looks younger every day.

On this, all important day in our national calendar, don’t you think that it will be appropriate for us to join hands and sing memorable birthday song for our beloved Maame Sika Ghana ? Ghanaians let’s prove to Maame that yes we can do better than this.
