This article is about Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah, the legend that we never appreciate until it was too late.
My thought isn't straight. Every country is one way or the other endowed with natural resources, but it is obvious some powerful (imperialist powers) countries from Europe, North American, Asia, and Australasia continents pave their way to African to siphon our resources not to talk of our labour resources for over 400 years without mercy. Though Africans are always grateful for Abraham Lincoln's contribution to the abolition of the slave trade the exploitation of the recourses that went on over a long period also left a hole in the heart of Africa.
This was a tragedy to the continent and cannot be forgotten. It was due to this that Dr Kwame Nkrumah determined to join the fight for Africa liberation when he was in school abroad. His vision was to liberate the continent and not only his country Gold Coast because if the Gold Coast surrounded by french colonies gain independence but all neighbouring countries from North to Burkina, West to Togo and East to Ivory Coast are all still under colonial masters our independent will be meaningless.
Kwame Nkrumah in his quest to gain independence wrote so many books of which some includes "Dr Kwame Nkrumah towards colonial freedom" and distributed the books to his fellow freedom fighters long before the UGCC invited him to Ghana.
Kwame Nkrumah came to Ghana to contribute massively towards gaining the independence of the Gold Coast.
After the independence was granted He, therefore, said "in our culture when an old man dies newly born child is named after him", so Gold Coast shall be named after the old Ghana empire since Ghanaians emanated from that land currently added to the land of Mali after they were conquered. This is how come the name Ghana was given to Gold Coast.
Dr Kwame Nkrumah became president in prison and was set free to lead the country. He visited the USSR currently Russia and travelled 2000km across the country just to study how the USSR was developed so he could develop Ghana in that direction. That brought the idea of building so many factories, social infrastructure projects like hospitals, laboratories, schools and the likes, bridges, Dams, motorway, roads, and many others even though the English never left any money for Ghana after the massive exploitation of the resources. With this, he created so many jobs for Ghanaians without discrimination.
Dr Kwame Nkrumah established the Ghana Mining Company and initiated the Ghana Gold Refinery Company project to 90% completed but was abandoned after his overthrown and Ghana Gold Company was collapsed. A company that was meant to mine our gold to create jobs, and develop our country was collapsed and Ghana had nothing of such existing.
After Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana has collapsed its own and given all mining sites to foreigners with a strong Ghanaian security force with ammunitions to protect and shoot any Ghanaian who take some of the gold. Afterwards, the helicopter then comes to pick the gold and carry it away. After further processes with the government, carry it away to their home country to monetize it then give it back to the Ghana government as a loan with interest.
How should we describe such a situation hitting the country and the continent?
Even social responsibility has become a bone of contention always between the company and the community in which they are mining and sometimes leads to a fight between the police or Army and the community leaving people dead and many injured.
My question is what at all is going on in this country? as our police are killing us at the expense of foreign investors protection. Meanwhile, Ghana gold can be mined by Ghana to prevent most of this incident and
The foreign investors should know that Ghana isn't an extension of Europe nor Australasia, so they should be mindful in their dealings with our communities and how their existence has wiped away some youths in Ghana.
Ghana is Ghana, an Africa country that belongs to Ghanaians.
Thank you for reading. God bless you.
