Ghana’s first president – Dr Kwame Nkrumah is said to be the greatest politician to have walked the soil of Ghana. His achievements include leading Ghana to Independence and steering the early wheel of a tremendous nationwide development.
Despite Nkrumah’s unique position on the Ghanaian political landscape as a hero, Jamestown Mantse, Obrempong Nii Kojo Ababio has said President John Dramani Mahama is a greater than him.
The 92-year-old chief is reported as having said: “Dr Kwame Nkrumah was my contemporary. I saw what he did for Ghana. I am tempted to say you have surpassed Nkrumah.” “My son, I admire greatly what you are doing in infrastructure. As you can see I am flipping through the pages of the green book. Don’t worry, it is well with you,” he added.
Obrempong Nii Kojo Ababio made the above comment when President Mahama visited him as part of his Greater Accra Region tour.
