The residents personal that the distributer illustrated, with no slight bit of disgrace, that she is so uninformed to the important, unrivaled, and unparalleled commitments of the man "without a doubt announced as the African of the Millennium".


the significant, unrivaled, and unparalleled commitments of the man "without a doubt announced as the African of the Millennium".


"[We] are persuaded that the writer of the set of experiences book intended to be utilized for showing Class 6 understudies, has no valuable information to affect, yet on a deliberately determined mission to adulterate world history, misdirect the group of people yet to come and lead the country into a separated Ghana."


In a course reading known as THE GOLDEN HISTORY OF GHANA for Basic 6 understudies distributed by the New Golden Publication in Kumasi and composed by Mercy Gyaa Adiyiah, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah was, among numerous things, depicted as a tyrant.


Tending to a question and answer session at the burial place of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah at Nkroful in the Ellembelle District of the Western Region for the residents, a Senior Nzema Citizen, Nana Mireku Tumi, said the endeavor to dissipate the transcending accomplishments of Dr. Nkrumah, is "generally appalling and crazy.


"… the one who drove Parliament of Ghana to pass into law the AVOIDANCE OF DISCRIMINATION ACT in December 1957 can never be portrayed as a tyrant."


He scrutinized that "if CPP and Nkrumah winning the political decision for three back to back occasions in 1951, 1954 and 1956 makes him a despot for being in office for just seven years, at that point shouldn't something be said about both the NDC and NPP who have both gone through ten years and more in administration".


He recorded a reiteration of accomplishments and overall acknowledgments presented on Dr. Kwame Nkrumah and thought about how such an individual will be agreed such distinctions on the off chance that he didn't be anything however a sacrificial pioneer.


"At the AU central command in Addis Ababa in Ethiopia stands an excellent sculpture of Osagyefo. In Bamako in Mali, Osagyefo's sculpture is raised. In Dar es Salem in Tanzania, a college corridor is named after him. In Zambia, a University is named after him. He was made a co-President for Guinea after he was toppled in Ghana. In Chicago, an African community school is named after Osagyefo. At the Heroes Park in Havana in Cuba, a colossal landmark is highlighted for Nkrumah."


In the book, the writer blamed Dr. Kwame Nkrumah of squandering assets of Ghana to help African nations, especially Guinea.


In any case, Nana Tumi expressed that that snippet of data is maybe "probably the most amusing joke that could be recounted Africa.


"On the off chance that the expansion of monetary, key, and reciprocal help to African nations to acquire autonomy was a misuse of assets, at that point what do our different African pioneers meet each year to do, all for the sake of joining together?"


He portrayed as abnormal that the very book that runs Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, in another breath, talks about the various improvement drives of his gathering.


"… the CPP gave Free Education to all offspring of school-going age and let loose instruction to the tertiary level in Northern Region.… CPP through G.I.H.O.C gave 16 businesses."


He expressed that the inhabitants are requesting an unfit statement of regret from the distributer.


"We are approaching government to liaise with applicable partner organizations, to condemn and boycott the deal, proprietorship, and ownership of such distributions including Golden History of Ghana implied for Basic 6."
