“Let’s uphold legacies of Prof. Busia” – Former Youth Organiser

Wenchi, (B/A) The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has been urged to reflect, re-collect and uphold legacies of Professor Kofi Abrefa Busia, as the nation commemorates the 40th anniversary of the death of Ghana’s former Prime Minister in the Second Republic.

Prof. Busia opens the Party of the Danquah-Busia-Dombo tradition to commoners and made it a mass movement. He was tolerant and respected views of common people, Mr. Richard Kwadwo Adu, a leading member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has said.

In an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) on Monday at Wenchi in the Brong-Ahafo Region, Mr. Adu who is the Assemblyman for Ntoase Electoral Area in the Municipality said the NPP needed to reflect on the ideals of the former Prime Minister to deepen the Danquah-Busia tradition.

He pointed out that Prof. Busia’s legacies of democracy and rural development as well as commitment to true democracy, passion for fighting corruption and strong value for hard work and civic education ought to be kept alive in the NPP, if the party was determined to remain a governing Party beyond 2020.

Mr Adu who is also a former Wenchi Constituency Youth Organiser of the NPP said Prof. Busia left an indelible mark in the annals of Ghana’s democracy, saying the best monuments to immortalise him was for the nation and her leaders to take inspirations from him in pushing forward Ghana’s development agenda.

Prof. Busia’s government has incredible history of people with passion who helped to build the country. We need such leaders who are brave and consistent with the tenets of democratic values and credentials to develop our nation, he said.

Mr Adu said Prof. Busia’s government saw, felt, recognised and enhanced dynamism of the youth, industry of poor artisans, tenacity of farmers and zeal of ordinary market women.

If these traits are embedded in our governance, we will be able to alleviate the plight of the ordinary citizen by creating more job opportunities, he added.
