Video of Kwame Nkrumah promising one man one house surfaces




Ghanaian current president Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo Addo in the build-up to the 2016 elections announced that he was going to give every constituency one million dollars and one village, one dam.

This comment from the then-presidential aspirant brought up the mantra of “1 district 1 factory and 1 constituency I dam”



We all thought he was the first person in the history of the countries politics to promise citizens such juicy offers.

A 62-year-old video from 1959 is currently gathering reactions on social media after it was shared on Twitter, as it shows a powerful message from Ghana’s first president.

Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah was shown in the film speaking to a crowd of Ghanaian workers, promising that each person will receive a house and a car.

The crowd could be heard applauding for their president, but they appeared to be in a state of bewilderment, prompting Nkrumah to repeat what he was saying in order for his message to sink deep into their hearts.
