Ghana Post will launch specially designed stamps on the 5th of next month in commemoration of the country's Golden Jubilee celebration.
An official of the company, Yaw Addo-Larbi said the stamps highlight Ghana"s greatness and achievements and are not only meant for posting letters but could also serve as precious souvenirs of the anniversary.
According to Mr. Addo-Larbi, the new stamps would attract normal charges.

These include the cost of transporting local mails, and lifting parcels by international airlines.
He announced plans to computerize operations at its counters to improve efficiency as well as minimize the waiting time of customers.
Mr. Addo-Larbi said more branches would be opened while the number of letterboxes would also be increase to meet rising demands.
