Comrade Ivor Kobina Greenstreet, the Presidential Candidate of the Convention Peoples Party (CPP) has vowed to continue the struggle initiated by Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah, Founder of the Republic of Ghana until neo-colonialism is completely defeated.
He said “the time has come for the progressive forces to rally together to ensure that the resources of Ghana are owned by the people of Ghana and are exploited for their benefit.
“How can we continue in this situation in which all of our resources are owned and controlled by foreign interests, usually from the colonial metropolis “he asked?
He was speaking at a wreath laying ceremony to mark the 44th anniversary of the death of Dr Kwame Nkrumah in Romania at the Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park.
Comrade Greenstreet said unlike the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) the CPP’s foremost commitment is ensuring that the people of Ghana become masters of their own destiny.
Comrade Justice Akufo Heneku, Secretary of the Socialist Forum of Ghana (SFG) pledged the full commitment of his organisation to working with all progressive forces to realize the dreams of the Osagyefo.
He said on the occasion of the 44th anniversary of the death of the Osagyefo, the progressive forces need to rededicate themselves to the struggle to free the people of Ghana from poverty and underdevelopment.
Professor Francis Nkrumah, eldest son of the Osagyefo thanked the SFG, the CPP and the Government of Ghana for the honour done to his father.
He recalled how he and Mr Kojo Botsio, a stalwart of the independence struggle went to Romania for the remains of his father and took it to Conakry, Guinea where Nkrumah was living in exile.
