Question
What does GHANA mean?

Answer
HUMOUROUS Answer: God Had Appointed Nkrumah Already


Real answer:
It takes its name from an ancient empire that came to an end in the 12th century. That empire, situated to the west of present-day Ghana, based its power on gold like its 19th-century Ashanti successor within modern Ghana's borders.

NB: ghana means "dense" in HINDI
Ghana in Arabic means Rich, Wealthy, Prosperous
