Members of the organizing committee of the 8th Pan-‐African Congress on Wednesday presented a rare collection of Pan-‐African literature to the Presidency.
They included books authored by Ghana’s first President, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, such as Africa Must Unite, Dark Days in Ghana, Axioms of Nkrumah and Neo-‐colonialism –the Last Stage of Imperialism.
Making the presentation to the Chief of Staff, the chairman of the committee, Mr. Kwesi Pratt Jnr, said it was a great privilege to donate the books of Dr Kwame Nkrumah to the Presidency at the Flagstaff House, which was both the home and office of the first president.
Mr Pratt said the legacy project of the 8th Pan-‐African Congress is already distributing the books to all tertiary education institutions, public libraries and state institutions, including parliament.
He described the collection as “extremely valuable books about Africa’s history, culture and values”, among others.
For his part, the Chief of Staff, Mr Julius Debrah, thanked the committee for embarking on a project to rekindle the values of Dr Nkrumah and Pan-‐Africanism.
Mr. Debrah said the books would be a good reminder of the values and aspirations of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah.
