50years ago,the first democratically elected president was overthrown by a group of people from one particular tradition.
Most of us today were not there in 1966 but regret the action and will not forgive those who truncated the vision Nkrumah had for this country.
Today those same people from that same tradition are saying we should change the Nkrumah of our time without any justifiable reason.
Posterity will not forgive us if we make such a mistake.
Before Nkrumah was overthrown, we had only 2 public universities in this country,Legon and KNUST.
Not until Rawlings came and added UEW,UDS,UMAT and UCC.After NDC exit in 2000,no other public university was established in this country again until 2009 when the NDC resumed power again and has so far added three more public universities at Brong Ahafo,Volta and Eastern regions.
So why do they ask us to change?
Since 1836 till 2012we had only 546 public senior high schools and H.E John Mahama alone is adding 200 of which 123 of them are at various stages of completion.
It is public knowledge that it is only the NPP in their eight years that could not add a single public university or Senior high school in this country
From independence till 2009 we had only 2 teaching hospitals in this country and today we can boast of 4 because JM has added 2 more teaching hospital thus -Legon and Tamale teaching hospitals.
JM has also completed the construction of a regional hospital in each region.Before 2009 we had only 6 regions with regional hospitals and under JM the other 4 regions that did hve regional hospitals now hve regional hospitals under construction.They are Upper West,Greater Accra,Ashanti and Upper East.It is imperative to note that the NPP again did not add a single regional hospital in their 8years in govt.
From independence till 2012 we had only 1millitary hospital and today under the able leadership of JM we hve 2.There is a millitary hospital almost completed in kumasi.
From independence till 2012,we had only 1 international airport and again under the able leadership of JM we hve 3,the kumasi and Tamale international airports.
The Kumasi one has been commissioned and the Tamale own will be completed this September
We will do the generations yet unborn a lot of bad if we do not retain JM.
