An official announcement from the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture says that the Kwame
Nkrumah Memorial Park which has now been renovated “to promote night life” will be opened at
10:00 am on July 4,2023.
According to a letter dated June 27,2023 and signed by John Yao Agbeko, the Chief Director of
the Ministry, the park has been fitted with enhanced features including a restaurant, craft shop,
mini amphitheatre, and Presidential Library.

Akufo-Addo and his friends can dance on his grave but he will continue to be the real founder of
the modern Republic of Ghana and the Chief inspirer of a United Africa prospering under the
banner of socialism
