Formed from the merger of the British colony of the Gold Coast and the Togoland trust territory, Ghana in 1957 A.D. became the first sub-Saharan country in colonial Africa to gain its independence. Ghana endured a long series of coups before Lt. Jerry Rawlings took power in 1981 A.D. and banned political parties. After approving a new constitution and restoring multiparty politics in 1992 A.D., Rawlings won presidential elections in 1992 A.D. and 1996 A.D., but was constitutionally prevented from running for a third term in 2000 A.D.. John Kufuor, who defeated former Vice President John Atta-Mills in a free and fair election, succeeded him. Asante, Ewe, Fante, Boron (Brong), Dagomba, Dangme, Dagarte (Dagaba), Akyem, Ga, and Akuapem are spoken; English is also spoken as an official language.
