Rapper Guru has appealed to government to rename the Kotoka International Airport after the first President of Ghana Dr Kwame Nkrumah.
In a post on Twitter, Guru wrote, “Kwame Nkrumah International Airport… drop the Kotoka name.
His humble plea echoes the sentiment of other Ghanaians who think Kotoka did nothing worthwhile to merit a whole airport being named after him.
Even back in May 2016, Dr Onzy Nkrumah, son of the late Nkrumah told Hot FM’s Odifour Kwabena Aware, host of “Nyasem Hwe” that his father will be extremely horrified to see the Airport named after Kotoka.
“My brother Odifour, naming the airport after Kotoka is very appalling. Kotoka was a thief, traitor, and a venom. I don’t think my father will be impressed at all. In fact, he will be horrified to see the airport named after Kotoka. Apparently, my dad should’ve been named after the Airport looking at his ideologies and legacy,” Onzy told Odifour with much passion
KWAME NKRUMAH INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT ✊ drop the Kotoka name
