history.
Also pupils of early school going age can also read and understand the drawings and in fact could serve as one of the ways of revealing to them right from childhood, what exemplary and visionary leadership is all about.
This captivating illustrated book reconciles us, both young and old, with our history, as our nations in Africa continue to rediscover the true essence of democracy; reminding us of the people’s power and their desire to survive in a free, just, and accountable society.
As expressed by the author at the end of the book….”But the effect these changes will have on
Ghana,….only time will tell.”

Attacking midfielder Mohammed Kudus is reportedly set to join the Black Stars in Cameroon after receiving green light from Dutch giants Ajax.

Ajax are happy to allow Kudus to travel to Cameroon for the ongoing 2021 Africa Cup of Nations having assessed the 21-year-old following his return from injury.

Initially, Ajax were reluctant for Kudus to join the Black Stars as they claimed he wasn’t fit to play in the difficult tournament fresh off an injury.

Kudus has not played since November when he suffered the rib injury in the crucial 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier against South Africa.

Kudus travelled for Ajax’s mid-season training in Portugal, where he seemed to have demonstrated he was ready to return to competitive action.

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) had been in contact with Ajax after Milovan Rajevac decided not to give up on Kudus and added him to the 28-man final squad.

According to the reports, GFA have arranged a flight to bring Kudus to Yaounde, where the Black Stars are currently based.

Kudus’ imminent arrival is a huge boost for the Black Stars who made a rough start as they were beaten 1-0 by Morocco on Monday at Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium.

Kudus is now likely to feature in the crucial game against Gabon on Friday and then start on against debutants Comoros.
