Description DM1999111201:GHANAED:POLITICS:PERSONALITY:JUL1957 - Long Live Ghana - The first five minutes in the life of Ghana at Accra's Old Polo Ground. On midnight's stroke Premier Nkrumah highlifted on to the platform in front of those thousands of Ghanaians. Then he beckoned to his Cabinet to follow him. The cabinet waved, then Nkrumah began his speech. "At long last the battle has ended. Ghana is free forever. From now on there is a new African in the world. We are going to create our own African personality. We will create a nation that will be respected by every other nation. I rely on you. God bless you."
