Prof. Michael Oquaye distorted history – Otokunor

A communication team member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the Deputy Research officer, Peter Boamah Otokunor has stated that the speaker of parliament Prof. Michael Oquaye and the NPP’s attempt to distort the history of Ghana is most unfortunate and unacceptable.

In his statement the attempt to rewrite the history of Ghana by making Dr. Kwame Nkrumah irrelevant will not help the history of the country, to him it is misleading and must be highly condemned.

Otokunor further stated that this attempt by the NPP is to basically make supreme the family legacy of the president Nana Akuffo Addo.

“The whole agenda is to rewrite the history for the family of the current president  Nana Akufo Addo and this has been their agenda from day one”

“What was J.B Danquah’s role in the struggle for independence and what at all did he do”,Otokunor fumed.

He further stated that the 70th Anniversary lecture delivered by the speaker of Parliament on Friday 4th August was a big distortion of history and should not be given any relevance.

He continued by stating that the impact made by Ghana’s founder, Dr. Nkrumah in the struggling of independence and numerous developmental projects, such as the Tema motorway can not be hidden through a calculated attempt by the ruling government.

It can be recalled that Prof. Oquaye in this lecture stated, “Dr. Nkrumah, who was invited, became one of the founder fathers because of that invitation”.

Otokunor was speaking in a telephone conversation on Ahotor FM’s morning Show with the host Emmanuel Quarshie (Hit man) on Tuesday, 8th August, 2017.
