Ghana’s first president, Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah has been described by many as a man who never dies despite him exiting this world years ago.
For many, nobody can be compared to him in the political history of Ghana and even in the world at large.
He is the name many mention when they hear about Ghana or speak about what they know of the country Ghana.
Nkrumah traveled to many parts of the world when he was alive. Even after his death, he still travels the world.
The arrival of the statue of the Ghanaian great in the Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa 40 years after his death was met with notable local resistance.
Ethiopians signed a petition demanding that a statue of the pan-Africanist leader be joined by one of the late emperor Haile Selassie or removed.
The golden statue of Nkrumah was erected to commemorate his founding role in the Organisation of African Unity, the AU’s predecessor.
The latest journey Nkrumah has made is to the capital city of India, New Delhi. This time around, he has a street named in his honour.
