7 prophecies of Nkrumah that are happening right now

 

 

Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah forever remains one of the greatest gifts to Ghana.

Since he could not fight the anti-colonial fight all by himself, Nkrumah decided to form a strong political party which would help him win the hearts and minds of Ghanaians, who already were resisting colonial rule. 

The party was called the Convention People's Party (CPP).

He also was met with grave political opposition from other local politicians who just felt the approach by Nkrumah was very radical.
