The communications director of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nana Akomea wants the national anthem of Ghana changed.
According to the main opposition partyï¿½s stalwart, Dr Ephraim Amuï¿½s patriotic song ï¿½ ï¿½Yen ara asaase niï¿½ ï¿½ which means ï¿½This land is our ownï¿½ must replace the age-old God Bless Our Homeland Ghana.
Akomea said the patriotic song which is seen in some quarters as the de facto national anthem of the oil-producing country, ï¿½has grown on its ownï¿½ and easily identifies with Ghana.
The former MP for Okaikwei South told Accra-based Joy FM the popular Twi song must be translated into ï¿½other languages just like the South African anthemï¿½ so that everyone can sing in their own dialect.
Ghanaï¿½s current anthem ï¿½God Bless Our Homeland Ghanaï¿½ was originally written and composed by Philip Gbeho and adopted in 1957.
