Anytime the birth/birthday of Ghana is mentioned, 6th March, 1957 and the name Kwame Nkrumah (Ghana’s first President) comes in mind – but in a report by Starrfmonline.com, there seems to be something contrary. The report reads:

The Ghana@60 anniversary committee has set aside August 4, to celebrate the birth of Ghana.

According to the committee, the 4th of August is a very significant day in the history of Ghana and as such, the day ought to be celebrated as Ghana marks its 60th anniversary.
