Ghana first established diplomatic relations with Guinea in 1958. However, this suffered a break after the 1966 Coup that toppled the first President of Ghana, Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah. Thereafter, Guinea became the home of the President. While in Guinea, he was elevated as Co-President by the then President of Guinea, Sekou Toure.
It is worth noting that before he was ousted from Government, Dr. Nkrumah maintained very close relations with President Sekou Toure and this resulted in the formation of the Ghana-Guinea-Mali Union, a prelude to the subsequent Organization of African Unity (OAU), now the African Union.
Today, the integration process in Africa justifies the sacrifices Ghana and Guinea made right at the inception of their nationhood.
Historically therefore, Ghana enjoys a unique position with Guinea. The family bonds that link the two sisterly countries are clearly cherished irrespective of which Government is in power.
