Dr Sekou Nkrumah, son of the late Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah of blessed memory is set to join the ranks of the National Democratic Congress in a move that will shock most Ghanaians and possibly the NDC itself.
Sekou's decision, sources say, has been fired by his desire to get himself a platform to politically push his ideas for a Ghana free of poverty with a happy people.
He has already hinted of a press conference in the coming days to announce his decision.
Sekou has told Kweku Baako Jnr as well as a few other associates of his surprising decision which has caused more than a stir.
Kweku Baako Jnr views Sekou's decision as a joke whilst Egbert Faibille Jnr says “Sekou is capable of anything but I will be shocked if he carries out his decision”.
“I know Sekou has been having a battle with his conscience over what to do in the last few months in relation to his politics but I never thought he could gather the courage to pass this information to some of his associates,” Faibille said in further comments.
Sekou has been berating his father's CPP for it's apparent ineptitude in making itself a party of relevance in the fourth republic which has seen the NPP and the NDC share two terms each with nothing for the CPP so far.
“He has all along been torn between joining the NDC and the NPP, but I believe he has finally opted for Rawlings' NDC as his party of choice…he had hoped that his mother party would organise itself properly and function as a healthy political entity… he did not find that vim and verve in his party so he has decided to call it quits and join the NDC where he hopes to expand his world as an active politician and Pan Africanist…” one source said.
The younger Nkrumah, married to an American lady, will soon go public with his intentions and register fully with the party amidst fanfare, another source added.
