Information about Ghana

Formed from the merger of the British colony of the Gold Coast and the Togoland trust territory, Ghana in 1957 became the first sub-Saharan country in colonial Africa to gain its independence.

Ghana endured a long series of coups before Lt. Jerry RAWLINGS took power in 1981 and banned political parties.

After approving a new constitution and restoring multiparty politics in 1992, RAWLINGS won presidential elections in 1992 and 1996, but was constitutionally prevented from running for a third term in 2000.

John KUFUOR succeeded him and was reelected in 2004.

John Atta MILLS took over as head of state in early 2009.
