We as a country have never had anyone like him since he left power. The presence of his achievements cut across the whole country and beyond the borders of the country. The well-being of the people of Ghana was his guiding principle as the head of state of the country. Driven by a passion to put a smile on the faces of the citizens of Ghana, he stopped at nothing to improve the standard of living of Ghanaians.
To build the human resource of the country, he introduced free education. He created many jobs by establishing several factories dotted across the country. It was no secret that during his tenure as president, there were more jobs than thosewho needed them. The basic infrastructure like roads, hospitals, townships to mention but a few, were all not left out in his quest to build a better Ghana.
Sympathizers of the National Democratic Congress will praise John Dramani Mahama for the massive infrastructure development he embarked upon. Building roads, schools, and the rest. In this light, they see him as the best.
New Patriotic Party members will also taut Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo Addo and John Agykum Kuffour for their laudable social interventions in school, health to say the list.
But Dr. Kwame Nkrumah was the epitome of all of these qualities. Selfless, human-centered, bold, visionary. He was never a local champion as the spectrum of his impact transcends the borders of Ghana. Kwame Nkrumah was made a co-president in Guinea after he was overthrown in Ghana. As there was not enough, he celebrated in the West African country by being inscribed on their currency. Not just in Guinea but all across the continent and beyond. Nkrumah has made a mark on the development of Ghana.
Can we have any president ever like him? Osagefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, your legacy shall always be on our hearts and told the generation yet unborn.
