The once a special hideout of Ghana’s First President, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah located in the heart of the Legon Botanical Gardens has been left to rot by successive governments. All one would find is the Skeletal Remains of the once seren peaceful ediface hidden in the garden.
It looks as though intentionally or unintentionally, Ghanaians continue to work at forgetting about Ghana’s First president in every regard.
A place like this is not only rich in history but can serve as an important tourist destination for both Ghanaians and foreigners. There is so much history that has been left to go waste and lost under the vagaries of the weather at the Legon Botanical gardens.
Renovating the once important hideout of the president of Ghana and using it as a guest house or a restaurant within the Legon Botanical gardens would not be a bad idea.
The University of Ghana has been kind enough to have kept this all-important place to this day. Let us salvage the remains of this all-important place and put it into good use. Let us preserve the bits and pieces of this historic site within the Legon Botanical gardens.
The Multi-Talented singer and songwriter, Kuami Eugene (RockStar) is the only Ghanaian in recent times that has given value and respect to the site. His new hit song ‘Obiaato‘ meaning ‘Everyone Sings’ was videoed at the site within the Legon Botanical garden.
Many of us may wonder if thee sites and scenes in that video were here in Ghana. If you doubt it, journey to the Legon botanical gardens and see for your self, the in-depth historical remains of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah’s hide out left to rot.
