Deal of the day

Ghana’s first president, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah has been labelled as a dictator who used power to repress Ghanaians according to a Primary 6 History Textbook approved by the Government through the National Curriculum’s NaCCA.

The book dubbed ‘Golden History of Ghana for Primary 6’ was written by Mercy Agya-Adiyah based on the new NaCCA syllabus.

The leader of the party, Dr Kwame Nkrumah, was a dictator whose command must be obeyed without complaining,” point 3 on page 36 of the textbook read.

On age 36 of the textbook, in seeking to give a historical background into the establishment of the Convention Peoples Party in the Gold Coast, headed by Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah and the fight for Ghana’s independence, the book makes a selection of incidents that it believes portrays the Kwame Nkrumah regime in a negative light to the pupils.

The CPP was not a Democratic Party because it turned Ghana into a one-party state” whiles point six (6) also reads “the CPP abused the rights of many Ghanaians through the Preventive Detention Act it brought about in 1958.”
