"As we mark the 67th year of Ghana’s independence from colonial rule, many of us remain unsure of our nation’s fate. May we find the passion and urgency in our hearts to work towards safeguarding a brighter future. Let us not forget the words of Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah and the true values upon which this nation was built.
“I believe strongly and sincerely that with the deep-rooted wisdom and dignity, the innate respect for human lives, the intense humanity that is our heritage, the African race, united under one federal government, will emerge not as just another world bloc to flaunt its wealth and strength, but as a Great Power whose greatness is indestructible because it is built not on fear, envy and suspicion, nor won at the expense of others, but founded on hope, trust, friendship and directed to the good of all mankind.” ~ ," she wrote.

As I walked the grounds, I felt an ineffable sense of connection and reverence wash over me and was reminded of the unwavering dedication they possessed towards the ideals of freedom and justice.
Today I pledged myself anew to the cause of championing equality and fostering a brighter tomorrow for our cherished nation.
In the mausoleum I found solace and a renewed sense of purpose—an unyielding resolve to honor their memory by actively contributing to the ongoing journey towards a more just and equitable Ghana," her caption read.
