Before independence and after independence of Ghana, we have had several Political Leaders and Former Presidents but CVM strongly believes that H.E. J.J. RAWLINGS is the Overall Best Former President and Outstanding Leader of Ghana.
The 2nd & 3rd Best Former Presidents are H.E. John Agyekum Kufuor and Dr. Kwame Nkrumah respectively.
Our 1st, 2nd and 3rd Republican Status could not guaranteed us Multi-Party Democracy. The 4th Republic spearheaded by H.E. J.J. Rawlings gave us a Stable Multi-Party Democracy. Ghana is currently governed by the RAWLINGS 1992 Constitution at 60years. There is the need to celebrate J.J. Rawlings for ending Coup de tat in Ghana.
The BIG SIX did well for the total liberation of Ghanaians but they couldnâ€™t facilitate to secure the Nation with stable multi-party democracy. Their efforts were truncated with Coup de tats. Members of BIG SIX were good but J.J. Rawlings is Excellent.
The decision of NDC led by Mills/Mahama to institute Founderâ€™s Day to celebrate only Dr. Kwame Nkrumah was a Terrible and Unreasonable Political Error.
Dr. Kwame Nkrumah is an old glory with his CPP tradition struggling to even secure 0.24% in Ghanaâ€™s Presidential Elections.
Mills and Mahama were very ungrateful to their root (J.J. Rawlings), the very root that helps them to win the 2008 general election. The charismatic root which helped them to taste Political Power for 27years (PNDC/NDC) in Ghana.
J.J. Rawlings is more relevant than Dr. Kwame Nkrumah in the Contemporary Politics of Ghana.
The current Parliament of Ghana contains only members of Danquah-Busia-Dombo Tradition and Rawlings Tradition. Representatives of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah Tradition are absolutely zero in Parliament now.
A good father leaves his inheritance for his Children. J.J. Rawlings is a good father than Dr. Kwame Nkrumah because his PNDC/NDC has ruled Ghana than any Political traditions in Ghana. The only negativity associated with the J.J. Rawlings Tradition is his 2012-2016 Corrupt Offsprings.
Danquah, Busia, Dombo are good fathers than Dr. Kwame Nkrumah beacause their Political Sons and Daughters are very relevant in the 4th Republic than Nkrumahâ€™s DEAD CPP/PNC/GCPP Heritage.
The Tradition of Danquah-Busia-Dombo has produced three Elected Democratic Governments (Dr. Busia, John Kufuor & Nana Akufo-Addo).
The Tradition of J.J. Rawlings has produced three Elected Democratic Governments (J.J. Rawlings, John Mills & John Mahama).
The Tradition of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah has produced two Elected Democratic Governments (Dr. Kwame Nkrumah & Dr. Hilla Limann).
Henceforth, the two most dominant Political Traditions in Ghana for many years to come are:
1. Danquah-Busia-Dombo Tradition
2. J.J. Rawlings Tradition
The Tradition of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah is just a Past Glory and totally irrelevant in the Modern Day Politics of Ghana.
CVM support the call for the replacement of Founderâ€™s Day with FOUNDERS DAY.
