Hardly a week passes by without Ghanaians hearing about ‘Nkrumahism’ or the fact that the ‘Nkrumahist’ parties are fragmented. I was in a car when I heard Samia Nkrumah, announcing that she would contest for the chair of the chair her father founded, the CPP.

Hearing her speak sparked a couple of questions in my mind: what at all is Nkrumahism and who is an Nkrumahist?

That was yesterday. I am still grappling with the questions, so I decided to throw them out and ask for some education. What on earth is Nkrumahism? I know it has something to do with Kwame Nkrumah but I don’t know exactly what.
