On the 6th of march 1957, Dr Kwame Nkrumah, said on the famous Independence day declaration that “At Long last the battle has ended, and thus Ghana, your beloved country is free forever”. I believe today, Nkrumah will be turning is his grave, in deep pain, anguish, and disappointed to have realized that, the battle he declared to have ended over 50 years ago has only just begun.
Nkrumah Would be turning in his grave today to see that Ghana and Africa has become in the words of former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, as the ‘’scar on the Conscience of humanity’’. Nkrumah would be turning in his grave today, to have realized that Ghana our beloved country indeed, has won yet another Olympic medal in the wrong things such as corruption indexes as measured by Transparency International.
It is sad to see a continent such as Africa, blessed with an overabundance of natural resources and yet poor. I agree with PLO Lumumba, that the only reason we are described as a 3rd world is because there is no 4th or 5th world, if not we would belong in them.
