How come JJ is founder of the 4th republic but Nkrumah is not the founder of Ghana? – Kwesi Pratt asks



The discussion over who established Ghana actually waits on as numerous who try to the thoughts of Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah accept he is the organizer of Ghana while the individuals who have confidence in the Danquah-Busia philosophy likewise hold that Ghana has various authors and one can’t assume the praise alone.


Kwesi Pratt Jnr, Managing Editor of the Insight paper, is of the firm conviction that Ghana was established by just Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah and not the Danquahs nor the Busias. He adds that by winding the story of how Ghana was established, revisionists are looking to respect individuals who accomplished no work.


Talking at a Socialist Movement of Ghana occasion to praise the birthday of the primary leader of Ghana on September 21, Pratt contended that his old buddy President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, whom he has been with down and dirty and still sees as his companion, when he expected to win votes to turn into the President of Ghana, alluded to the late President Rawlings as the author of Ghana’s fourth republic.

He said, assuming President Akufo-Addo and his accomplices need Ghanaians to accept that the late President was the originator of the current vote based period, then, at that point, Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah is the organizer of Ghana and assuming he [Nkrumah] can’t be the author of Ghana, JJ Rawlings can’t be the author of the fourth republic.

Kwesi Pratt Jnr explained, “One individuals who has consistently contended that one individual can’t discovered a republic is my own awesome companion, the current President, who has consistently demanded that the republic can’t be established by one individual, wow… when he was battling for power, when he expected to prepare a wide range of state powers so he could turn into the President of Ghana, one of the spots he visited was the place of previous President Jerry John Rawlings… and I heard my companion and current President H.E. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo refer to Mr Rawlings as the author of the fourth republic.


“On the off chance that Nkrumah alone can’t be the organizer of a republic, why Jerry Rawlings alone was the originator of the fourth republic?” he inquired.

“Their irregularity [simply] kills me. Our point isn’t that Nkrumah established Ghana alone; to be sure, we don’t feel that Nkrumah is that man or Captain Zoro and so on in the western media, Nkrumah was an individual and we observe Nkrumah in light of the fact that he exhibited something we have consistently put stock in and we have consistently accepted that out of the alleged everyday person or the common individual, something great can occur and Nkrumah embodies that; Nkrumah is the best illustration of that in the course of our life… ” he said.

Kwesi Pratt Jnr further demonstrated that individuals who have faith in Osagyefo commend him on his birthday as the author of Ghana since he rose from a town in the Western Region and turned into the star of Africa.

“We observe Nkrumah in light of the fact that he isn’t care for them. These individuals get a grant or whatever, they go to the United States of America (USA) and go to the college for a long time, when they return their highlight will be evolving. At the point when they return, you can’t converse with them on the grounds that their pronunciation is so awful, you can’t hear the words; they can’t articulate the words. Nkrumah went outside this nation, joined the Pan Africanist developments, coordinated a major Pan Africanist Congress in Manchester in the UK, he worked in the USA… and returned to the Gold Coast as a credible Gold Coaster loaded with the vim of battle, he didn’t accompany LAFA [Locally Acquired Foreign Accent], he came as he went… ,” he pushed.
