westernGH.com aims to outdoor the Western Region of Ghana

As part of the celebrations marking the centenary celebration of the birth of Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah the first president of the Republic of Ghana and the discovery of oil in Ghana, westernGH.com announces its presence to help show the world what the western part of Ghana has to offer aside the oil find and what Nkrumah’s legacy is all about.

WesternGH.com is a project aimed at highlighting issues relating to the Western Region. It strives to be the most preferred source of news and information about the region. It also seeks to promote the work of journalists in the region as they remain the main contributors of news and articles that are featured on the site. WesternGH.com therefore exposes the talents and contributions of journalists in the region to competition and opportunities.

When asked about the importance of this venture, the creator Ralph Menz mentioned that in line with the centenary celebration of the great son of that region Nkrumah, it is imperative that we give the true image of this part of Ghana to Ghanaians and to the world in general. Nkrumah’s legacy is rendered in half-truths and exaggerations. I hope Ghanaians realize the global impact of Nkrumah’s legacy, because he inspired a lot of people worldwide."

Messrs Ralph Menz and Julian Adomako - Gyimah lead a team of young and enterprising Ghanaians who seek to showcase Western Ghana to the rest of the world using westernGH.com as the medium.

This will be the first online journal from the western region and this is why it is so dear to our hearts, the creator mentioned.
