Ghana, formally known as the Gold Coast from 6th March 1957 to 1st July 1960 was ruled by the Monarch- Queen Elizabeth II. After her rule Ghana has experienced the rule of 15 different leaders. And today I seek to through light on the secondary Schools this leaders attended in or outside Ghana.

The first on the list is His Excellency Dr. Kwame Nkrumah who ruled Ghana from 1st July 1960 to 26th February, 1966 when he was over throne. He attended the then Prince of Wales College and School Achimota, which later became Achimota College and now Achimota School.

He later on returned the country to democratic rule and became the fourth president and first in the fourth republic. He went to Achimota College. He is the third president to attend Achimota School.

Still in the fourth, republic we had His Excellency former president John Agyekum Kufuor as the president from 7th January, 2001 to 2009. He also went to Prempeh College.

The Late and Former President, His Excellent John Atta Mills was the president of Ghana for three years when he died. He also went to Achimota School. He is the fourth president to have gone to Motown.

The next President was His Excellency John Mahama. He also went to Achimota School -making the fifth president to go to Motown.

And our current president, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo went to high school in London (Lancing College).

 I belief by now if you want to be natured as president or leader you know the secondary school to attend. Knowledge we say is power.
