The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia has predicted that calamity will befall the country if parliament approves President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s proposal to establish August  4, as Founders day.

He said God will not bless Ghana if it continues with the change of date adding that Ghanaians must stand up to resist any attempt by the President to distort the independence history of Ghana.

He said the change of the Founder's Day is a groundless intention because the same people he [Nana Addo] wants to honour were those who boycotted the passing of the independence law in parliament; as such do not deserve to be celebrated as freedom fighters.

 

According to him, "If we allow this thing to happen in Ghana, unthinkable calamities shall befall Ghana because God will not bless this country for diluting the efforts of Nkrumah to favour another person."

A statement issued by the Presidency which states that "4th August, is, thus, obviously the most appropriate day to signify our recognition and appreciation of the collective efforts of our forebears towards the founding of a free, independent Ghana.

"It is equally clear that the first leader of independent Ghana, and the nation’s first President, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, played an outstanding role in helping to bring to fruition the works of the earlier generations, and leading us to the promised land of national freedom and independence. It is entirely appropriate that we commemorate him for that role, by designating his birthday as the permanent day of his remembrance".

 

Asiedu Nketia speaking on the change of date by the President described the move as a waste of time.
