Ghana Stock Exchange Market Return History & Index Trend

For some time now I have been receiving calls and emails from friends and people, particularly MBA finance students for an access to the Ghana Stock Exchange market returns history for their various academic researches. Other analysts also request for this information but this has been missing from the website of GSE. You can get access to the full historically data of listed companies on the GSE but not that of the Composite Index or the Financial Stock Index.
The stock market has been operating since 1990 and a big thanks to Annual Reports Ghana, for capturing the year to year returns and trend of the indexes so well.  You can even get access to the time series of GSE indices upon request.
