Samia hints of reviving Nkrumah’s legacy


Former lawmaker for the people Jormoro in the Western Region, Honourable Samia Nkrumah, has indicated her readiness to throw her unflinching support behind any movement or political party that would revive the legacy of her late father.


According to her, her resolve to do so was not because President Nkrumah happened to be her father but to salvage tax payer’s money from going waste.


She made this remark at a ceremony to mark the Republic Day over the weekend on the theme: “Republic Day Manifestation: Celebrating Dr Kwame Nkrumah,” at the Life Assembly Worship Centre where she indicated that the neglect of the projects started by her late father had in no way inured to the benefit of the country.


Funding for those projects, she said, came from resources of the country. She, however, could not understand why projects which have seen massive injection of tax payer’s money many of which had been left to rot while the teeming youth walk the streets hunting for jobs.


The former lawmaker bemoaned the outdated nature of constitution and said that modern constitutions and conventions could be looked at and adopted to our situations.


She expressed optimism about the youth rising up and take up the destiny of the country in their hands and running with it.


However, she was quick to note that the youth must be observant and ready to learn and implement what modern democracies have been practising.
