He shared the photo of the vehicle, which looked very rusty and covered halfway by a partially torn cloth.

I gather that this is Nkrumah’s first car as Prime Minister, rotting away at the National Museum. In a serious country...” Rodney Nkrumah-Boateng.

Dr. Kwame Nkrumah became Ghana’s first Prime Minister in 1952 and retained this position when Ghana declared independence from Britain in 1957.

Having led the fight for independence, he is regarded by many as the founder of the country, despite acknowledgement of the other members of the ‘Big Six’.

Meanwhile, Ghanaians on social media are outraged by the fact that the car used by Ghana’s first Prime Minister has been left to rot.

Kwame could not believe what he was seeing.

Kofi Kay thinks Ghana has lost an opportunity to monitize the car.

Naa Amanua is stunned and can't believe what she is seeing.
