Here is a poem I made towards our 1st July Celebration. 1st July marks the Republic Day in Ghana and coincidentally it is also Canada Day marking the peaceful unity between the three colonies. I want to use World Poetry as a platform to dedicate this poem to all Ghanaians and Canadians around the world during this peaceful celebration. Thank you, Henry Ocansey hocansey.wordpress.com

STATEMENT (1st July Celebration)
Republic Day being celebrated with great enthusiasm in Ghana is not in remembrance of the long and bloody history behind Ghana’s independence but to rejoice and reflect on the fight for Ghana’s political sovereignty.
“Ayekoo”!! to all Ghanaians around the world for all contributions towards the economic growth, sustenance and peace of our nation.
Congratulations also to all Canadians for efforts towards the peaceful unity between the three colonies making a mighty Canada.
