Every now and then there’s a debate regarding renaming the “Kotoka International Airport” after the first Prime Minister and President of Ghana, Kwame Nkrumah.
Contributing to the debate on his Instagram, popular political critic, A-Plus asserted that General E.K Kotoka, who the airport was named after, should not be celebrated for leading the overthrow of Kwame Nkrumah.
“Ghana’s main problem since independence is this guy, general EK Kotoka, the guy who led the overthrow of Kwame Nkrumah…. I wonder why our airport is still named after him…. It shows that we don’t know what we lost or appreciate what Nkrumah did for us. Ungrateful people,” A-Plus captioned a photo of Kwame Nkrumah and EK Kotoka.
Responding to the post and sharing his two cents about the issue, gospel musician, Sonnie Badu stated that Ghana will never have peace until the name is changed from Kotoka to Kwame Nkrumah.
And he is sitting at the gateway to Ghana … well you just solved the problem…until the name is changed Ghana will never have their peace… The one who got is independence should have his name at the airport,” he commented.
