He built our Tema motorway in the late 1940s. It still stands strong todqay. He built our Akosombo dam, which still gives us electricity--despite the fact that we are 22.5 million now as compared to 6 million in 1957!
Words are insufficient to explain the man, but the headlines--including the fact that he should inspire the youth--already attest to the greatness of the man.
