Kwame Nkrumah: World Peace, African Unity and a United Ghana
Ade Sawyerr on the 40th Anniversary of the passing of the Osagyefo
I start this retrospective with a quotation on African Unity by Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah and here I quote
“We all want a United Africa, United not only in our concept of what unity connotes, but united in our common desire to move forward together in dealing with all the problems that can best be solved only on a continental basis.” Kwame Nkrumah
I intend to talk about Kwame Nkrumah and his contribution to World Peace, African Unity and a United Ghana against the back drop of current events.
World Peace and Unity
Few people view Nkrumah as a man of peace; they perceive him more at home in supporting the freedom fighter movements in Africa, but there was a time when Nkrumah’s stature in the world was that of a peacemaker.
