The Progressive People’s Party (PPP) joins Ghanaians in commemorating the 111th Birthday of Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, who sacrificed in Ghana’s struggle for independence from colonial rule.
In a statement signed by the National Secretary of the party, Paa Kow Ackon, the PPP urged the youth to reflect on the varied legacies and actions of the country’s forebears, which include sense of discipline, support for local industry, and commitment to high standards.
The PPP noted that one important milestone, worthy of praise was Dr. Nkrumah’s Accelerated Development Plan for Education, which produced many brilliant professionals across the political divide and was free for all.
The party reminds Ghanaians to stand proud by striving to curb corruption, strengthen the economy, consolidate democratic governance, deal with insecurity and honour Nkrumah’s vision to industrialize the nation.
The PPP said governments will come and go, but citizens will always remain the ultimate foundation of what is real and worthy.
