NDC Warns Of Resistance To Imposition Of Founder’s Day On Ghanaians

The National Democratic Congress, (NDC) has served notice that, it would team up with all progressive forces and all well-meaning Ghanaians to resist what the party described as the Danquah clique to impose their family history on Ghana.

The NDC said any attempt to change the history, would be detrimental to National unity and cohesion and must not be allowed.

It therefore warned that, should President Akufo-Addo and the élite succeed in cancelling the September 21st as Founder’s day, of Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, the party would restore the day as such if elected back to power in 2020.

These were in a Statement issued by the Leader/Chairman of NDC, Kofi Portuphy and copied to the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation, (GBC), in Accra to mark Nkrumah’s day.

The statement said NDC extends its felicitation to all Ghanaians, adding that Founder’s day was instituted to celebrate the heroic efforts of Ghana’s first President, Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, who led the country out of colonial rule into independent statehood.

“On this auspicious occasion, the NDC renews its commitment to national unity. We recognize the untiring efforts by Osagyefo in leading Ghana to independence in the face of obstacles placed in his way by known politicians in that era. Nkrumah’s place in the history of Ghana as its Founder is unassailable.”

“We urge all Ghanaians to draw inspiration from this great man of humble upbringing who eschewed ethnocentrism and bequeathed to us a united country to be proud of.”
