CELEBRATING AN AFRICAN GIANT-OSAGYEFO DR. KWAME NKRUMAH`S 109TH BIRTHDAY.
September 21st of every year, Kwame Nkrumah is celebrat-
ed in Ghana as the man who is much respected in African
and global politics, who gallantly led a team of patriotic,
passionate and freedom-thirsty Ghanaians to claim political
freedom for his country, making Ghana the first country to
have achieved this feat from European colonial rule in sub-
Saharan Africa.

Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah was Ghana`s first Prime Min-


ister. He was born on 21st September, 1909 in Nkroful in the
Western Region of Ghana and died on 27th April 1972.
Kwame Nkrumah was an influential advocate of Pan African-
ism and a founding member of the African Union and winner
of the Lenin Peace Prize in 1962.

After 12 years abroad in pursuit of higher education to de-


velop his political philosophy, kwame Nkrumah had the
opportunity to lead other diasporic Pan African organiza-
tions to champion the cause of independent African coun-
tries and later played a key role in the formation of the Or-
ganization of African Unity (OAU), now African Union (AU).

Kwame Nkrumah returned to the then Gold Coast to begin


his political career as an advocate for National Independ-
ence. He formed the Convention People`s Party (CPP). He
was elected Prime Minister in 1952 and retained this posi-
tion until he declared Ghana as an Independent country
from the British colonial government on 6th March, 1957.

In 1960, Ghanaians approved a new constitution and elected


Kwame Nkrumah President. His administration was both
Socialist and Nationalist, thus he founded a National Indus-
trial Energy Projects, developed a strong National Education
System and promoted Pan African Culture during the de-
colonialization period in Ghana and across the world.

His government achieved rapid success, a success story


which has stood out distinct from any government on the
African Continent both past and current.

In February 1966 while he was away on a state visit to Vi-


etnam (On a peace mission), his government was over-
thrown in a CIA backed military coup. Following this, Kwame Today, Kwame Nkrumah remains one of the most respected leaders in African history. In
