Open letter to Brother Sekou Nkrumah – from Comrade Ade Sawyerr


By: Sawyerr, Ade, (2007-10-09) More from this columnist Open letter to Brother Sekou Nkrumah – from Comrade Ade Sawyerr

I was saddened to hear that you have left the CPP and joined the NDC. I have taken the trouble of writing to you openly, because I read this publicly online and though I have not been able to check the accuracy of the report, I have not read a denial of from you.
I hope that you take this public appeal to you in the spirit in which it is being written and that we may be able to arrive at a credible explanation of your decision, not that you owe me or anyone an explanation of your private political ambitions.

The reports foretelling your departure did not quite explain all the reasons, but highlighted that you felt that the vision of your father Osagyefo could best be carried out only by the NDC. What intrigued me is that another journalist colleague of yours was also reported as saying at a later point in time that he was joining the NPP because he felt that was the best place to carry out the vision for the nation of Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah, his mentor. So if I seek a public explanation it is only because I am quite confused and need to understand how the legacy of Nkrumah could be so diffused that every political tradition in Ghana can adopt it.
