According to the former President, Kwame Nkrumah made a huge mistake building factories and spent over 450million dollars of Ghana’s reserves which was in Bank of Ghana then.
He noted that, the money could’ve been put to better use, like investing it just like what other third world nations did and
things really turned well for them.
Third world nations like Dubai, Singapore etc. and now their economies are very powerful.
“When we gained Independence, we just zoomed into industrialization. So we started building factories. That involved a lot of money. We were running, we wanted to build factories, we didn’t take time to plan. That is why the economy collapsed.
There is forgetfulness on the side of human beings. When we have been able to fix all the problems in the country that someone will rally behind that fact to call for the nation to be fixed? we are building” Mr John Agyekum Kuffour said.
