COGNITIVELY ADRIFT


I don't know about you but as a Ghanaian who lived through Nkrumah's repressive and dark era, it behooves on my conscience to speak the truth and debunk the falsehood that has been successfully peddled over time to obscure the contributions of Dr Danquah in order to elevate Nkrumah to the high pedestal of sole architect of Ghana's independence, the founder and builder of our nation.
You can sycophantishly sing the praises of Nkrumah while glossing over the unparalleled contributions of Dr J.B.Danquah all you want but, fyi, while you're sleeping the sleep of death, the veil of ignorance and deception is broken by a new age of knowledge and enlightenment.
Put exquisite lipstick on the pig all you want but it's still a pig. Until we deviate from the path of untruth and deception to acknowledge the truth, we will remain in the prison of under-development, deprivations and poverty and we will continue to walk the slippery downward slope because we are cursed or cocooned in an intricately woven web of lies. Only truth breaks the shackles of untruth. Only the truth shall unite us as a people and as a nation. Only the truth and unity of purpose can widen our horizon and cause us to lengthen our stride. Only then can we take our rightful place in the comity of nations. Only the truth shall set us free. Truth is eternal. Truth is divine.
