he Convention People’s Party (CPP) says President Nana Akufo-Addo distorted the history of Ghana’s independence struggle during his anniversary speech.
The party says the President extolled the contributions of others' in the struggle above that of Ghana’s first President and founder of the CPP, Dr Kwame Nkrumah.
Director of Party Education of the CPP, Justice Akufo-Henaku, says the true story of Ghana’s independence was not told at the independence anniversary on Monday, March 6, 2016.
In what others have described as a detailed history of the country’s independence struggle, the President started from a century before 1957, in 1844 when the country became a British colony.
He continued with the formation of the first political party, the United Gold Coast Convention (UGCC) and events that led to the invitation of Dr Kwame Nkrumah to join the struggle.
