The Member of Parliament for New Juaben South, Dr. Mark Asibey Yeboah has said the hypothesis which seems to suggest that, independence was singlehandedly achieved by Ghana’s First President Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, is flawed.
According to Dr.Asibey Yeboah, independence was collectively achieved by many people including the big six and others who are not even recognised, therefore efforts of all those who helped to achieve independence should not be belittled as some sought to do.
Dr. Yeboah maintained that, Founder’s Day celebration which is centered on one person is imperfect.
The law maker said this in an interview in Koforidua.
Dr. Yeboah also reechoed President Nana Akufo-Addo-led government’s commitment to protecting the environment to ensure sustainable development.
Dr. Yeboah called for the need to as a nation have a second look at the use of plastics in the country with suggestion to find alternate degradable materials for packaging of products so that, the environment is not polluted.-kasapafmonline.com
