Nkrumah holds the key

His Messiahship is duly acknowledged in The Evening News, January 1964. A little divine endorsement resurrected on the eve of a "referendum" that would enshrine the one-party state into law. The leader of said party evidently would continue his messianic task armed with the key of redemption that a bowing Jesus turns over to him, and covered with the appeal of well-chosen aphorisms. Well done.
