Today is the 65th anniversary of Ghana's independence from British colonial rule when Ghana's first president Dr Kwame Nkrumah uttered these famous words, 'At long last the battle has ended and that Ghana your beloved country is free forever'
This special edition of Ghana in Focus asks the question is Ghana really independent, using the following definition of independence - free from outside control; not subject to another's authority, not depending on another for livelihood or subsistence,
We then use the five key strands of Ghana's economy namely, The banking sector, the oil and gas sector, the retail sector, the mining sector and telecommunications sector to arrive at the stark conclusion that Ghana is NOT independent!!
How can Ghana be independent when it does not own, manage and control its economy and resources to the degree that Ghana only gets 3% royalty rate from Gold output. This is diabolical as Ghana IS the world's biggest producer of Gold.
We also touch on the coronavirus vaccine to show how much Ghana is NOT independent in that how it was coerced into accepting vaccines from in the main Western countries rather than being self reliant and producing its own in house vaccine.
