The statement said: “After the death of Dr Nkrumah many lost hope that Ghana will never be able to capture its economic independence. We are happy to announce to the world that Dr Nkrumah left a body of work that articulate his philosophy and ideology for freedom from exploitation, injustice and poverty.

“Today we draw strength from Nkrumah’s vision to recapture the strategies that realised the Akosombo dam, Tema Harbour and township, hundreds of integrated industries, a de-tribalised society and a peacemaker in world affairs.”

The statement said: “As Ghana mourns Nkrumah today; the Nkrumaist family calls on all Ghanaians to unite under one leadership to win political power and implement Nkrumaist policies to lift Ghana out of dependency, economic mismanagement and injustice
