The first President in Ghana Dr. Kwame Nkrumah hustled in the United States of America although many Ghanaians believe he was studying in America. One of the Gold Coast Politicians Mr. Joshua Attoh Quarshie has posited that the maiden president of Ghana wasn’t studying but was rather hustling to make ends meet in the United States.
According to him, all the stories that Kwame Nkrumah was studying in the United States is false however, Nkrumah was somebody who used to pump toilet in America in order to make ends meet.
He asked, what is Study?
He recounted an event when Dr. Kwame Nkrumah appeared before the Watson Commission and was asked ‘Are you a doctor….?’ Nkrumah answered no.
When asked what truly Nkrumah never studied in a university in the United States, Mr Attoh Quarshie reiterated that there are crooks who buy some of these degrees from the universities.
He added that Kwame Nkrumah’s master was Ako Adjei so it was he (Ako Adjei) who recommended Nkrumah to Dr JB Danquah and other members of the United Gold Coast Convention (UGCC) to be their General Secretary.
“Ako Adjei was Nkrumah’s master because Nkrumah had no family to send him money while in the United States for any study but Ako Adjei used to receive money from the Gold Coast…so Nkrumah was following Ako Adjei,” he said.
Mr. Attoh Quarshie noted that the socialists have been covering the truth because there was a lot of evidence which was never made public.
He stated further that in R. A. Hammond’s letter to Nkrumah, he accused him (Dr. Kwame Nkrumah) of being a tribalistic leader who isolated Ga and tried to create a community that deprived Ga of their part of the national cake.
