Age Range: 6 – 15 years
The occasion of the 75th anniversary of the passing of Nana Ofori Atta I presents us with a great opportunity to look back in our history and give honour to whom honour is due.
Thomas Carlyle was right in stating that the history of the world is the biography of great men. The life of Nana Ofori Atta I proves this point. We are all losers when parts of that history is lost.
