The deputy Speaker of Parliament and a former Minister of Health, Hon. Alban Kingsford Sumani Bagbin has stated that it is needless to debate on who founded the country Ghana.
He stated that most researchers, authors and historians have credited Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah with the founding of the country Ghana given the exceptional role he played in the independence struggle.
He further said that it is only some few “elements” within the United Party (UP) tradition who are yet to accept this reality.
He was speaking with show host Emmanuel Quarshie on Ahotor fm on Saturday 11th March, 2017.
He added that, he was so surprise about the inaugural speech delivered by the president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo because the president was partly a product of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah.
‘Nkrumah after he joined the UGCC as it’s General Secretary moved beyond the coastal territories to other areas in the country to further the freedom fight and his ingenuity, fortitude and struggle brought the others to liberate Ghana .’ He opined.
