The historic photo of then little Nana Akufo-Addo in a regal white outfit, seated next to JB Danquah, a former Ghanaian statesman and lawyer, has generated pleasant commentaries after the photo was shared by a popular Facebook page.
Nana Akufo-Addo was captured in a photo with JB Danquah, his wife, and the flower girl, together with some other guests.
And it is no surprise that many can’t have enough of the telling history and future the timeless photo conveys.
While the photographer was not credited, his historic work will live beyond him and indeed it has earned some pleasant remarks on social media.
Born on December 18, 1895, JB Danquah, known in private life as Nana Joseph Kwame Kyeretwi Boakye Danquah, was a Ghanaian statesman, pan-Africanist, scholar, lawyer, historian and one of the founding fathers of Ghana.
JB Danquah played a pivotal role in pre-and-post colonial Gold Coast, presently Ghana and he’s credited with giving Ghana its name.
During his political career, Danquah was one of the primary opposition leaders to Ghanaian president and independence leader Kwame Nkrumah. Danquah was described as the "doyen of Gold Coast politics" by the Watson Commission of Inquiry into the 1948 Accra riots.
JB Danquah died on February 4, 1965.
