Dr. Nkrumah’s Down Fall Was Caused By Extreme Sycophancy

Sycophancy is a VICE which, in the affairs of a nation, can only lead to ANARCHY, INSTABILITY and total CONFUSION if we don’t stop being sycophants since it can not be abolished by legislation because it is human nature. Without apology to any body, all sycophants are the number one enemies of the state since they are dishonest liars.

Sycophancy has been one of the MOST DEADLY VICES since the era of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah of blessed memory. It is a very BIG SIN which still lives with us today and must be avoided if we are to succeed in building a MEANINGFUL DEMOCRACY since Dr. Nkrumah’s down fall was due to EXTREME SYCOPHANCY – a practice where Back is often described as WHITE, where LIES becomes the TRUTH, and corruption thrives and becomes the order of the day.

It is a fact that thousands of young Ghanaians, some in very responsible positions today 2014, who did not see our First Republic under Nkrumah or saw very little of that bloody NLC military regime and our second Republic under the fake violent democrat Dr. Busia.

Majority of these young Ghanaians don’t always believe their eyes whenever they read the articles I have been writing since they were NOT BORN at that time. Well, I have taken it upon myself to educate Ghana Youth through the articles I have being writing since the PNDC era in 1984 up to date 2014. In so doing, I clashed with some kids in politics like Collin Essaumah, Kakra Essaumah, Nana Obiri Boahen, and some journalists from the Private media who were in bed with the violent prone NPP both in opposition and in government. Surprisingly, I clashed with some latter Day Saints within my own great party – the NDC, who felt insecure with the articles I have been writing I called their bluff and even told them to GO TO HELL, with due apologies to Lt. Col. Gbevlo Lartey. The NDC is heir to June Four and so long as this historical fact remains, those NDC members who will stop me from writing articles to the media in Ghana are NOT YET BORN.

In my capacity as a former Young Pioneer Cadre, an active member of the June Four Movement since 1979 to date, I only FEAR GOD and NOT MY FELLOW HUMAN BEING when ever I am doing the RIGHT THING, and that was what President Rawlings taught us on June 4 1979 through the June Four Movement and the PNDC era through the C.D.R. Concept to always stand by the TRUTH no matter what. This explains the reason why the entire NPP machinery runs for cover together with their bias journalists whom they bought into slavery since 2000 to date 2014, therefore, I FEAR NO FOE ONCE I AM RIGHT.


The period of internal self-rule, 1951-1957 witnessed further expansion in infrastructural investment when Dr. Nkrumah took over the long suspended Guggisberg development plan of the late twenties. He financed it with the money accumulated from cocoa and by the time that Nkrumah was overthrown he had built over 45 factories which were all in full operation before he was toppled. Ghana’s independence brought NO CHANGES to the structure of the economy as it was NOT FREE from foreign control.

The appendage of the Ghanaian monetary system to the British pound sterling strengthened this dependence on not only an outside economic system but also LOCKED UP the country’s financial assets over which it had NO CONTROL at all.


The main source of Nkrumah’s failure which can be properly placed at his door steps was his continuous reliance on the OLD BUREAUCRATS to the NEGLECT of building his NATIONALIST PARTY into an ADMINISTRATIVE ORGAN OF CADRES who will bring both Party Loyalty and Discipline and management efficiency into the running of the many Parastatal Industries he hurriedly set up. He rather left the management of the Economy in the hands of a bureaucracy OPPOSED to his Political Programme and to a bizarre combination of incompetent party hackers and their backers in high places and paid little attention to the rural majority who produced the wealth in Ghana.


Dr. Nkrumah was returning from Upper Volta now Burkina Faso on 2nd August 1962 and stopped in the village of Kulungugu in the Upper Region to receive greetings of CPP Party members and school children. A hand grenade was hidden in a bouquet of flowers and given to an innocent little school girl to be given to Nkrumah and as he was about to receive the flowers, the grenade or bomb exploded killing the poor little school girl instantly while several others watching Dr. Nkrumah were wounded. However Comrade Tawiah Adamafio who was always near the Osagyefo was far away from him at that crucial moment of the Bomb Explosion, so he and his close associates namely Ako Adjei, and H.H. Coffie Crabble were arrested and detained three weeks the bomb was organized by Adam Amandi a member of the United Party. In September 1962, the city of Accra was rocked by a series of bomb explosions which signified that the opposition NLM was ready to turn to the use of violence and massive terror in order to weaken the CPP’s hold on power, a tactic they had perfected since the days of the NLM which the NPP represent today 2014. Some of us are not surprised at all when the NPP lost the 2012 elections to President Mahama and rushed to the Supreme Court while burning several markets and threatening to cut off the heads of NDC members in Ghana.

After the Kulungugu bomb attack which nearly killed the President in 1962, Nkrumah cut all contacts with the ordinary masses of the people and rather RELIED on his immediate Aides to tell him what was happening in the country, However, those gentlemen who were too AFRAID TO OFFEND NKRUMAH, wove a huge programme of fat lies, evasions and down right fabrications which they FED to Dr. Nkrumah and falsely ASSURED HIM that everybody was well on board the ship of state and that he had no need to come up on deck from his STATEROOM to SEE and HEAR THE PEOPLE WHOM HIS Republican Constitution claimed to derive its Sovereign Power.

Apart from the bomb throwing and the killing of innocent people by the NLM/NPP, there was a campaign of crude abuse and vilification mounted in the daily newspapers against Dr. Nkrumah personally, the NLM, UP tradition which the NPP represent today 2014, are doing exactly the same thing against President John Mahama as they did to Jerry Rawlings from 1992- 2000.

Those from whom the 31st December revolution seized power are never alone, I mean the NPP members. They are essentially agents, the cat paws of an International System which, as our analysis has amply indicated has been in the business of Murder, Rape, Plunder and Bloody wars for profit for over 500 years. In the objective context of Ghana, whether we like it or not, we are surrounded by pathetic neo- colonial states of the French Empire whose leaders are nothing but servants of this Empire subsisting on a FEW CRUMBS that fall from their Master’s table. Have you now seen the reality of the situation?

It must be stated that Dr. Kwame Nkrumah’s work stopped only at the Nationalist stage. What came after him were a series of self evident neo-colonial regimes of shameless anti-African lackeys with the exception of Gen. Acheampong


A few evenings before the coup d’état saw Accra in a near festive mood as Mr. Kojo Botsio organized a big party in his residence in Accra, a party at which every body “who mattered” was present. This writer was there in his capacity as a Young Pioneer Cadre.

It was after that bloody coup on 24th Feb. 1966 that I got to know that Kojo Botsio and all the leading members of the great CPP were fully aware of the impending coup. Sycophancy had worked to perfection as it led to the violent overthrow of the CPP government of Nkrumah and over 45 factories sold to the Americans and Busia/Afrifa’s supporters in 1966. They sold all the National Assets to foreign interests over a dinner table.

Is anybody littering? I shall return when the need arise. I am done ‘Jaanbie Iwail” Aluta Continua!
