“Ghana is a failed state with great potential” — Onzy Nkrumah

Disqualified CPP Flagbearer aspirant,  has described Ghana as a failed state, fifty-nine years after Independence. He said this on Saturday, 5th March 2016 edition of Prime FM’s current affairs programme, Wonsom Wonsom, hosted by Onua Kojo Nkansah as a special guest.

Mincing no words, the disputed “second son” of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, the founder of modern Ghana, who was born ten days after Ghana gained Independence from the Great Britain on 6th March, 1957, posited that, “Ghana is well endowed but is not well managed. If we think we are doing well then we are deceiving ourselves.”

He touted his father’s achievements saying, “within eight years or few months that my father was serving this nation, this nation actually achieved incredible achievements…that is the normal period of any president now.” Further, he challenged Ghanaians to mention one head of state after Dr. Kwame Nkrumah who achieved one-tenth of his achievements. “How many presidents managed to do one-tenth of what Kwame Nkrumah did? Just name one,” he challenged.
