Busia, father of rural development - Akufo-Addo


Ghanaians have the tendency to give all sorts of accolades to our departed leaders. Now, Busia has his turn.

The idea that Busia took the job at Center for Civic Education out of some altruistic reason is at best palpable falsehood. Coming from Akufo-Addo makes it even worse, because the noble thing, particularly truth, is expected from such a personality.

The fact is that Busia was offered every advantage by Afrifa-Ankra lot (The NLC), to make himself popular and electable. Center For Civic Education was the platform to do so, and it worked. Busia became a household name.

Acheampong was a character, but the freedoms of the ordinary were not curtailed. Even members of government rounded up during the coup were released and many went on to live comfortably, while still plotting Acheampong's defeat.
