What do we hear about him? They have twisted history. Akufo Addo is trying hard to delete him from history.

Credits must be credited to where it’s due. Kudos to the people of Nkroful for protecting this great tourist site and making it more valid for our future generations to also come and witness the history of this great man. At least, it would help them to also write a good mark.✊

5 Mega Projects Built By Kwame Nkrumah That Are Still In Use Today

In a related story, YEN.com.gh wrote about five projects that Kwame Nkrumah constructed in the 1960s, which are still operational today. After Ghana gained independence in 1957, Osagyego Dr Kwame Nkrumah did several massive projects that are still in operation today.

Some of these projects cost millions of dollars and have been carefully maintained, serving more than 10 times the people when they were initially built.

Many people hold Kwame Nkrumah in the highest respect as a visionary leader who, if given the time, would have transformed Ghana into a first-world nation.
