Ghanaians observe the memorial of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah today

Ghanaians, both home and abroad, are today, September 21, 2021, celebrating Dr. Kwame Nkrumah with Memorial Day as a Statutory Public Holiday.

The day is set aside to remember and honour Ghana’s first President, Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah, who earlier was Prime Minister and Africa’s foremost champion of continental unity and liberation of the black race.

The day will be marked with lectures and events to commemorate the achievements and legacy of Dr. Nkrumah.

After leading the CPP to victory to form a government, he became the leader of government business in 1951. The move, eventually led Ghana, formally the Gold Coast to independence from British rule in 1957.

As the leader of the country, Dr. Nkrumah led massive socio-economic development that resulted in a number of infrastructural projects, including the construction of the Akosombo Dam, the Tema Motorway, among other projects.
