The Member of Parliament (MP) for Ellembelle, Emmanuel Armah Kofi Buah says the current government’s attempts to water down Ghana’s first President, Kwame Nkrumah’s distinguished lead role in the struggle for Ghana’s independence will not work.

The Ellembelle MP told Citi News that the next National Democratic Congress (NDC) government will restore the original Founder’s day if voted into power.

“Let us be blunt, what can this government boast of? All they have done is to cancel the Republic Day and water down the Founders Day by basically replicating some other holidays but the NDC’s intention is to ensure that Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, the founder of this republic, whether anyone likes it or not is recognized as befits him.”

“When the NDC comes to power, the Founders Day will be elevated once more and celebrated at the national level. And it will have a great impact here at the birthplace of Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah. One of my biggest agenda is to basically push for tourism, but the agenda needs a concerted effort. If we are successful at this, the Western Region tours alone will give us millions and transform our place,” he added.

Parliament had approved the Public Holiday Act which made changes to the country’s holiday calendar.

The changes included the introduction of January 7 to be celebrated as Constitution Day and August 4 as Founders’ Day.
