Be Selfless Patriots Like The ‘Big Six’- Kodua To Ghanaians



The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has charged Ghanaians to emulate the selfless patriotism of members of the Big Six who suffered imprisonment, persecution and harassment in their quest for a free and independent Ghana.According to the party, if Ghanaians can vote and choose the leaders they wish for today, then they should beware of the others sacrificed for the freedom they enjoy today.

General Secretary of the NPP, Justin Frimpong Kodua, who made the call in a statement to commemorate the Founders’ Day anniversary on Thursday 4th August, 2022 stressed the onus lie on the Ghanaian populace to also make sacrifices to make the country a better place for the present and future generations

“As the country marks another Founders’ Day anniversary, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) would like to, first, celebrate members of the Aborigines Rights Protection Society and the United Gold Coast Convention (UGCC), whose pioneering activism against colonial rule laid the foundation for the country’s long journey to independence.”

“The selfless advocacy of J.E Casely Hayford, Dr. J. B. Danquah, Paa Grant, Emmanuel Obetsebi Lamptey, Edward Akufo-Addo, William Ofori Atta, Arko Adjei, Kwame Nkrumah, and several others, culminated in the attainment of independence on March 6, 1957.”

August 4, he said, is indeed the most historic day in the nation’s struggle for nationhood because it did not only witness the birth of the famous Aborigines’ Right Protection Society, an important milestone in the march for nationhood and self-determination but was also the day that the United gold coast Convention ( UGCC), the first political movement in the country, was founded, which then set the political movement for the independence struggle.

He appealed to Ghanaians to inculcate the spirit of patriotism and to support the efforts of the NPP government in reviving the country’s economy following the devastating impacts of COVID-19 and the Russia-Ukrainian war on the global economy.
