Mrs Josephine Yankson Amo, Western Regional Director of the Department of Gender, has called on the government to reconsider naming the Nkroful Agricultural Senior High School after Madam Nyaniba, mother of Dr Kwame Nkrumah, first President of Ghana.

She told the Ghana News Agency that the school begun as Nyaniba Midddle Boarding School but was changed to Nkroful Middle Boarding School after the overthrow of Dr Kwame Nkrumah in 1966 and wondered why the name of such a great personality should be missing from the records of the educational system.

Mrs Yankson Amo said Nyaniba had paid her due and, therefore, deserved to be recognised adding; “there is no single monument in Nkroful which bears the name of the mother of Kwame Nkrumah, I think as a people, we can no longer relegate the name to the background”.

She said the school, which was her alma mater, had produced individuals such as Dr Sipa-YAnkey and Madam Afiba Dadzie, former Education Director among other great personalities and, therefore, called on stakeholders to revive the name “Nyaniba” in the Nzemaland and Ghana as a whole.
