Daughter of Kwame Nkrumah, and a former Chairperson of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Samia Yaba Nkrumah, has stated that her father’s role as Ghana’s first President and his pan-African vision warrants his special standing in Ghana’s history towards independence.

She said, unlike others who also played their part even before his father came into the scene, Dr, Kwame Nkrumah was the catalyst in the struggle and final attainment of independence.

President Nana Akufo-Addo’s speech on Independence Day has sparked some debate over the perceived sidelining of other Ghanaians who contributed to the independence struggle.

President Akufo-Addo’s speech was criticized by some, including the CPP, as being a skewed account of history to suit his father, Edward Akufo-Addo, and uncle, J.B Danquah who also played their roles on the road to independence.
