The deputy Speaker of Parliament and a former Minister of Health, Hon. Alban Kingsford Sumani Bagbin has stated that it is needless to debate on who founded the country Ghana.

He stated that most researchers, authors and historians have credited Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah with the founding of the country Ghana given the exceptional role he played in the independence struggle.

He further said that it is only some few elements within the United Party (UP) tradition who are yet to accept this reality.

He was speaking on Ahotor fm.

He added that, he was so surprise about the inaugural speech delivered by the president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo because the president was partly a product of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah.

He stated that history has made it known to us that the president of Ghana went against his father in support of Dr. Nkrumah and attended the Dr. Kwame Nkrumah ideological institute in Winneba in the Central Region. The president was also an active member of the students movement in support of Nkrumah.

He continued by saying that he admits that many compatriots played several roles in the freedom fight but Nkrumah’s role is so profound to be glossed over.

‘Nkrumah after he joined the UGCC as it’s General Secretary moved beyond the coastal territories to other areas in the country to further the freedom fight and his ingenuity, fortitude and struggle brought the others to liberate Ghana , he opined.
