Nkrumah’s overthrow remains a dark chapter in our history – Kofi Buah

Kwame Nkrumah

The Deputy Minority Leader in Parliament, Emmanuel Armah-Kofi Buah, has asked Ghanaians to reflect on the dedication and contributions of Ghana’s first President, Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah, to the liberation and progress of Ghana and Africa.

A statement signed by Buah and copied to the Ghana News Agency to mark the 58th anniversary of the overthrow of the late President said: “The ever-regrettable coup that ousted the transformative leader from power and derailed our economic transformation remains a dark chapter in our country’s history”.

The statement said that many years after his overthrow and the subsequent death in a foreign land, Dr Nkrumah’s legacy would continue to inspire generations even yet unborn.

He said that as the nation honoured Dr Nkrumah and remembered the unfortunate events leading to that dark 24th day of February 1966, all citizens must recommit to upholding his ideals for a better Ghana and a prosperous Africa.

“Let’s ensure the sacred vision lives on.”
