Nkrumah Already Has March Six!

Posted by Business in Ghana on March 2, 2009

I read Mr. Kwabena Mprah’s opinion piece titled “Founder’s Day – Greatest Honor in Nkrumah’s Memory” (Myjoyonline.com 2/27/09) with utter contempt, as I have invariably done with the media fare of many an Nkrumah fanatic. To be certain, the Cii-Pii-Pii-ites would have a far better chance in getting the hulking and patently otiose African Union (AU) to set aside a day marked up the calendar as “Nkrumah’s Day” than having their maliciously devious attempt to summarily derail Ghana’s onward march into a civilized democratic culture stultified and, in effect, made a laughing stock around the globe.  After all, with Libyan strongman Col. Muammar El-Qaddafy at the helm of the African Union, what prevents these CPP cynics from successfully pleading the Show Boy’s cause? Needless to say, those who never met Mr. Kwame Nkrumah have the latter’s spitting image in the Libyan pseudo-chieftain to behold. In a palpable sense, the morbid accession of Col. Qaddafy into the chairmanship of the AU is, arguably, the greatest achievement of the extrovert Show Boy on the African continent. One can almost see the “visionary” Nkroful native do a vigorous ballroom dance with his recently deceased daughter-of-a-wife in their lavish mausoleum.
