Sixty five years on Nkrumah Never Dies

The nation Ghana was called Gold Coast under the rule of great Britain. Through the efforts of noble men, we wrestled power from our colonial masters.


The biggest responsibility relied on Dr. Kwame Nkrumah. He helped immensely, in gaining independence for Ghana. He was brought from overseas to be the general secretary of the maiden political party in the Gold Coast.


On his arrival, he encountered many challenges during his work as the general secretary. He then formed his own political party in order to implement his aims and ambitions.


He succeeded in gaining independence for the country. He later named the new country as Ghana. But his government was overthrowned by military leaders who stood against him.


Today, we remember the good works of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah. He is the first president of Ghana and the embattled founder of the nation.


Dr. Kwame Nkrumah helped other African colonies to gain independence from their colonial masters. He is the only known African president till today.


Truly, the works of Kwame Nkrumah will never fade away. Dr. Kwame Nkrumah never dies and he still remains in our hearts till now.
