I can safely say that for most Ghanaians, Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah occupies a very special place in their hearts. A man who firmly believed in not just the freedom of his countrymen, but the total liberation of African continent, Nkrumah oversaw the independence of Ghana from British colonial rule. The independence speech he made when the clock struck midnight on 6th March 1957 will forever inspire Ghanaians for generations to come.
‘Our independence is meaningless unless it is linked up with the total liberation of Africa’
It is this line in his speech that Mefiri Ghana draws inspiration from. Nkrumah was ardent advocate of pan-Africanism. But though his dream of a United States of Africa has yet to be realised, there are many in this generation who are doing their part to make it a reality. What are you doing to make this dream happen?
Kwame Nkrumah’s actions and deeds will forever inspire us, that’s why this month of March Mefiri Ghana will feature individuals and organisations who are engaged in inspirational work.
