The Convention People’s Party (CPP), one of Ghana’s opposition political groups, has declared plans to rebury the country’s first president, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah. Nana Yaa Jantua, the party’s general secretary, believes that the independence fighter was not given a proper burial, prompting the decision to rebury him in November of this year.
The CPP believes Dr. Kwame Nkrumah’s “restless” soul needs to rest, she told local media on Wednesday during a visit to the Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum to commemorate 50 years since his death.
“The Conventions People’s Party will set forth the timetable of activities that will conclude in the actual funeral in no time,” the party continued, “and will also inaugurate a funeral committee in due course.”
The CPP reaffirmed its demand that the government return assets taken after Dr. Kwame Nkrumah was deposed in 1966.
