The Convention People’s Party (CPP) last Friday marked the 46th anniversary of the death of Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah. He died in Bucharest, Romania, on April 27, 1972.

The CPP in a statement signed by the National Chairman and Leader of the party, Professor Edmund N. Delle, said “Ghana and Africa lost a torchbearer, liberation fighter and the African man of the millennium.”

“We in the CPP remember this day as a very unfortunate one for Ghana, Africa and the world at large, as the principles, and ideals of Osagyefo Dr Nkrumah remains more relevant today than it was during his reign. It is sad to note that till date Ghana and Africa though liberated are still under oppressors rule in diverse ways.

“What Africa and Africans need most in recent times is economic independence. Osagyefo Dr Nkrumah, continue to rest in perfect peace. You will forever be remembered. Your shining leadership in Ghana and on the African continent will never be forgotten,” the statement said.
