Happy 55th Birthday Ghana

I would like to wish Ghana and my fellow country men and women a very happy birthday/Independence day!!!

  God bless our homeland Ghana
And make our nation great and strong
Bold to defend forever
The cause of Freedom and of Right
Fill our hearts with true humility
Make us cherish fearless honesty
And help us to resist oppressors’ rule
With all our will and might evermore.
