The Greater Accra branch of the Yoruba Community in Ghana has congratulated Ghanaians on the occasion of the country’s 63rd Independence Day celebrations marked on 6th March.
In a press release signed by the Greater Accra Regional President of the Yoruba Community in Ghana, Amb. Oloye Oyeyemisola Fatuyi FIIM extended congratulations to Ghanaians.
He also expressed the hope that Ghana and Nigeria will continue enhance their bilateral relations and mutual cooperation considering the numerous economic capacities.
Amb. Oloye Oyeyemisola Fatuyi FIIM said as Ghana celebrate his independence, Ghanaians should endeavor to consolidate the gains made and press on to achieve more gains for the total development of the country.
He encouraged Ghanaians to rededicate themselves to the words of the National Pledge which states “to hold in high esteem, our heritage won for us through the blood and toil of our fathers”.
Amb. Oloye Oyeyemisola Fatuyi FIIM also wished health and success for his Ghanaian counterpart, and happiness and prosperity for the people of the African republic.
Ghana was the first western African country to achieve independence. British rule ended on 6 March 1957, when the Ghana Independence Act 1957 transformed the British Crown Colony of the Gold Coast into the independent dominion of Ghana.
