President Mills was a good man, not a great leader - Sekou Nkrumah

By Ghana l Myjoyonline.com | Joy News

The son of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana's first President, Sekou Nkrumah has discounted claims that late President John Mills was a great leader.

Dr. Sekou Nkrumah who once headed the National Youth Authority rather described him as a good man.

Speaking on Joy FM's news analysis programme, Newsfile, Saturday, he said, “we have heard remarks of people say Professor Mills was a great leader and honestly we don't speak ill of the dead that is our culture, we respect that and I think we gave Prof the due respect but again it does mean that we should go out of our way to say things that are not true.”

“Professor Mills,” according to him, “can never be described as a great leader but [he] was I think a good person who severed his country well. He got caught in politics; he made the choice to accept to become a politician and had to play the game of politics, rose to the highest of the land.”

He said President Mills did not really have what it takes to be a leader because he was imposed on the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and Ghanaians in general.

“As I had pointed out long ago, he didn't really have what it takes to be a leader because he didn't go through a certain process to emerge naturally as a leader. He was imposed on his party, and therefore automatically on Ghana, and I think that is why there was a lot questions marks with the presidency,” he added.

Due to this, he, Sekou Nkrumah, “will be a hypocrite to call Professor Mills a great leader.”

Perception is real even when it is not reality.
