Mr Kwabena Osei-Bonsu, Chief Executive Officer of Kick Malaria Out of Africa, a non- governmental organisation has called on Ghanaians to use the centenary celebration of the birth of the country’s first President, Dr Kwame Nkrumah, to promote peace and unity.
Speaking to the Ghana News Agency in Accra, he noted that since Dr Nkrumah stood for one nation with a common destiny, Ghanaians should emulate his commitment to promote nationalism.
He said “a house divided against itself cannot stand”, and therefore asked the people to approach issues confronting the nation with a common purpose devoid of partisan consideration to promote development.
Mr Osei-Bonsu said partisan politics did not augur well for the country and asked the citizenry to consider the good and well being of Ghana above all other considerations.
He urged Ghanaians to show remorse to the ill treatment meted to Dr Kwame Nkrumah and his family, adding that a lot of bad things were said about him when he was overthrown, after which he was described as the greatest son of Ghana and Africa.
The Chief Executive Officer said the NGO had planted four million trees throughout the country to commemorate the birth of Dr Nkrumah.
He expressed the hope that Ghanaians would honour the late president by taking active part in his centenary celebrations.
