Ghana is one of the fastest growing countries in Sub Saharan Africa. Although the country is progressing, many minor problems and challenges are still making the once Kwame Nkrumah governed country retrogress. From sanitation, water, power, education, agriculture and health, a myriad of problems are facing the 63-year old country.
A picture has been sighted online by Abieku news with the Ghana Flag turned upside down at the Presidency. In the picture, President Akuffo Addo is seen taking a picture from a visitor who probably may have visited the office of the President from another country on an assignment. This has generated a lot of controversy on social media with persons calling for the head of the staff at the Jubilee house for embarrassing the country.
Typically, the flag of Ghana begins with the red which means the blood and toil of our forefathers, followed by the yellow and the black star also signifying the wealth and gold of the nation and the hope of Africa. The last colour which is below is the green colour, it also means the rich vegetation of the country. In this picture, the green colour begins with the red colour at the end.
Many Ghanaians have reacted to the issue. One reaction that caught my attention is "This is not Nkrumah's Ghana". Kwame Nkrumah is the first President of the Republic of Ghana who led the nation to independence. His vision for a prosperous Ghana and largely Africa remains unbeaten. Many edifices, industries and policies of his still benefits the nation after 63 years.
