You’re nowhere near Nkrumah’s legacy – Kwesi Pratt fires NAPO

Editor of the Insight Newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr, has fiercely condemned Dr. Opoku Prempeh’s remarks downplaying the achievements of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, accusing him of attempting to denigrate the legacy of Ghana’s first president.

Mr. Pratt slammed the former Education Minister, describing him as one who’s unfit to drag Nkrumah’s name through the mud.

“You haven’t gotten anywhere to denigrate Kwame Nkrumah. You’ve just been nominated as running mate, you haven’t reached anywhere, and your claim to fame is that you implemented the Free SHS program. Go and look at the educational projects initiated by Nkrumah,” Pratt Jnr fired.

Making appearance on Good Morning Ghana on Metro TV, Kwesi Pratt Jnr., highlighted the irony of Dr. Opoku Prempeh’s claims, given President Akufo-Addo’s own history with the CPP.

“Many people voted for Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo because of his CPP past… Infact, until February 24, 1966, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo belonged to a radical wing of the CPP and supported Nkrumah throughout. And yet, NAPO has the audacity to refer to Dr. Kwame Nkrumah as ‘your Nkrumah’ in a denigratory manner. It’s unbelievable!”

Speaking during his outdooring in Kumasi on Tuesday, NAPO praised President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s development initiatives, stating it cannot be compared to even the revered first President of Ghana, Dr Kwame Nkrumah.

“Since independence from 1957 till today, we’ve not had any president that has helped Ghana like Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. I say from 1957 to now if you take your Kwame Nkrumah, no one has become president who has protected Ghana and moved it forward like Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo,” Opoku Prempeh stated.

According to him, under President Akufo-Addo’s leadership, Ghana has seen substantial progress in various sectors, including education, healthcare, infrastructure, and the economy.
