Ghana declared independence from United Kingdom on 6th March 1957. This was the result of the efforts of “The Big Six” leaders of Ghana, who in 1947 formed United Gold Coast Convention which called for the self-governance. In 1949, Convention People’s Party was formed by Kwame Nkrumah, who was also a member of the Big Six, and led the party in the struggle for freedom. In 1957, demanding for self-governance, the coastal Gold Coast region declared independence from United Kingdom. Ghana became independent on 6th March 1957 and the first African nation to do so.
