hello,
i am Ahmed issifu from Ghana and i live in the
capital city of Ghana called Accra.i am 20 of age and
a student.Tis some history about my country.
The Republic of Ghana is named after the medieval
Ghana Empire of West Africa. The actual name of the
Empire was Wagadugu. Ghana was the title of the kings
who ruled the kingdom. It was controlled by Sundiata
in 1240 AD, and absorbed into the larger Mali Empire.
(Mali Empire reached its peak of success under Mansa
Musa around 1307.)

Geographically, the old Ghana is 500 miles north of
the present Ghana, and occupied the area between
Rivers Senegal and Niger.

Some inhabitants of present Ghana had ancestors linked
with the medieval Ghana. This can be traced down to
the Mande and Voltaic peoeple of Northern
Ghana--Mamprussi, Dagomba and the Gonja
Before March 1957 Ghana was called the Gold Coast.
The Portuguese who came to Ghana in the 15th Century
found so much gold between the rivers Ankobra and the
Volta that they named the place Mina - meaning Mine.
The Gold Coast was later adopted to by the English
colonisers. Similarily, the French, equally impressed
by the trinkets worn by the coastal people, named The
Ivory Coast, Cote d'Ivoire.
i will tell u more when u reply and i really like u

bye for now,
Ahmed
