Relevance of Nkrumah lives on because our leaders depend on his blueprint-Yeboah

Founder of the Economic Fighters League Ernesto Yeboah has posited that the relevance of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah towards Ghana’s development cannot be underestimated.

Speaking on Nyankonton Mu Nsem on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, he opined that the original vision of Ghana and the blueprint for our development was initiated by the late Dr. Kwame Nkrumah.

On the free education policy being implemented by President Akufo-Addo, the youth leader said the late Nkrumah took steps to provide free education for all but after his overthrow, this policy suffered a setback.

He said the implementation of this policy shows that the late Nkrumah is still relevant.

He was however worried that the current president has failed to deliver on his promise to change Ghana’s Guggisberg economy.

Ghana he suggested lacks economic freedom despite having political freedom.

Greed, corruption, instability and chaos we have experienced in Ghana is due to the fact that we lack economic independence.

Youth unemployment he lamented has been one major crisis we have failed to address and the debate on legalizing Okada has exposed how poorly our leaders have led the country.

He alleged that the Agyapa deal is an avenue which the current president and his family and friends are robbing the state of its resources.

He called on the youth to hold their power because the political leaders we have in this country are only interested in amassing wealth for themselves and family without thinking of the masses.

September 21, which is the birthday of the late Nkrumah is celebrated as a holiday in Ghana.

Prior to the passing of the Public Holiday Amendment Bill into law in March 2019, the holiday on September 21st was known as Founders’ Day.

Founder’s Day is now be celebrated with a public holiday on August 4th.
