NDC REMEMBERS OSAGYEFO DR. KWAME NKRUMAH ON THE OCCASION OF HIS OVERTHROW 58 YEARS AGO
 
The National Democratic Congress today joins Ghanaians in commemorating 58 years after the unfortunate overthrow of Ghana’s first President, Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah.
 
On 24th February, 1966, President Nkrumah was ousted from office through Ghana’s first-ever coup d’etat. That day will be remembered as Ghana’s day of shame, as the coup truncated Nkrumah’s transformational vision which he had set in motion for the accelerated development and industrialisation of our country.
 
Instructively, the coup was executed by security personnel with the active orchestration of the forbears of those at the helm of affairs of our country today, in close collaboration with their foreign pay masters.
 
This nation-wrecking act was followed by a deliberate agenda by the Danquah-Busia- Dombo tradition to obliterate the memory of Nkrumah by attacking his works and legacy.  Despite their determined efforts to rewrite history, the memory of Kwame Nkrumah lives on, and his legacy remains unparalleled.


 
We must say never again to such acts of treachery, that have set our nation back and rolled back the clock of progress by several years. Ghanaians must reject those whose mission is not to pursue the path of democracy for the upliftment of our citizens, but their selfish quest for historical revisionism and the recognition of their ancestors.
 
Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah truly never dies.
 
 Signed.
Hon. Johnson Asiedu Nketiah
(National Chairman)
