The Ghanaian News Agency (GNA) was created on March 5, 1957, that is to say on the eve of Ghana’s independence, and charged with “the dissemination of truthful and impartial information”. It was the first news agency to be established in sub-Saharan Africa. GNA was part of a comprehensive communications policy that sought to harness the informational arm of the state to build a viable, united and cohesive nation state. The GNA therefore worked in the unique role of mobilizing citizens for nation-building, economic and social development, national unity and integration.
