Nkrumah’s ideology: Only Mills and Acheampong are closer – CPP Youth Organiser

National Youth Organizer of the Convention People’s Party (CPP) and General Secretary of the Coalition of Nation Youth Organizers, Comrade Osei Kofi Acquah has intimated that after 66 years of independence, no government and or national leader can come close to Dr. Kwame Nkrumah’s leadership style.

He says the impact of the first President of Ghana is yet to be replicated by any leaders under 2nd, the 3rd and 4th republics.

He however notes that a semblance of Kwame Nkrumah’s leadership and development agenda could have been seen in Professor Evan Atta Mills and Ignatius Kutu Acheampong’s leadership even though their roles in governance were short.

Comrade Kofi Acquah was sharing his thoughts on Ghana’s struggles of getting a transformational leader amidst the resources of the state.

“Nkrumah can never be compared to any leader we have had in this country and even on the African continent. But the closest we have had so far, I will say, is Atta Mills and Aheampong. They had a clear vision and plan for this country. But even that, when you compare it to Kwame Nkrumah, you will conclude they were just mimicking the great leader”, he observed.

“Acheampong refused to contract foreign loans when he was in power. All his projects were done with local resources, he introduced operation feed yourself, the Dansoman estates and others. Atta Mills was on a similar track, he believed in the people. The signs were clear when he was leader, the infrastructure, managing the economy etc. I know people will come at me but that is the truth. Rawlings during his time was a disaster, Kufour was also poor, Mahama was a mess and Akufo-Addo is a bomb, he doesn’t even know what he is doing, he says one thing and does a different thing”, he compared regimes.
