The construction of a glass house to accommodate the two vehicles of Ghana’s first President, Dr Kwame Nkrumah, is complete.
The glass house, which is located at the Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park in Accra, currently houses one of the vehicles of Dr Nkrumah. Dr Nkrumah left behind, a Cadillac and a Rolls Royce.
The Rolls Royce is under the custody of State Protocol but the refurbished Cardillac is in the glass house.
When Vice President, Mr Kwesi Amissah-Arthur, paid a brief visit to the project site, Thursday morning, he described the project as a good one.
He said the facility was an important piece of history and stressed the need for a research team to come out with information on the driver of the vehicle to be attached to the facility.
The Member of Parliament for Ellembelle and Deputy Minister for Energy, Mr Emmanuel Armah Kofi Buah, who accompanied the Vice- President, said his constituency was organising a 2012 Founder’s Day Celebration at Nkroful.
“This year, the youth of Nzema, through their voices and sporting activities, will celebrate the First President of the Republic of Ghana and our own native hero, Osagyefo Dr kwame Nkrumah,” he said.
Mr Paul Boateng, a marketing consultant who was instrumental in the construction of the facility, which was funded by Getfund under the supervision of the Ministry of Culture and Chieftaincy Affairs, said Ghana must do everything possible to uphold the legacy of Dr Kwame Nkrumah.
