The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia has said that his party will not allow the Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo government to distort the history of this country.
Asiedu Nketia and his party are as expected not happy with government’s proposal to make August 4 as the founders day.
According to him, the president — whose relatives were the leaders of the UGCC — want to honour them by distorting the history of this country.
“It is equally clear that the first leader of independent Ghana, and the nation’s first President, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, played an outstanding role in helping to bring to fruition the works of the earlier generations, and leading us to the promised land of national freedom and independence,” he said on Dwaso Nsem morning show on Adom FM.
“It is entirely appropriate that we commemorate him for that role, by designating his birthday as the permanent day of his remembrance.
“We won’t allow Akufo-Addo to change our history so he should organized a funeral to honour his ancestry in his hometown”
