Sonnie Badu, kotoka

Award winning UK-based Ghanaian gospel artist turn pastor, Sonnie Badu has attributed the unpeaceful nature in Ghana to the refusal of those in authority to change the name of Kotoka international airport in Accra.

Sonnie Badu was reacting to a post on Instagram by controversial musician turn politician , Kwame A-plus, regarding why General E.K Kotoka shouldn’t be celebrated for wrongful overthrow of Kwame Nkrumah .

A-Plus posted a picture of the late Kwame Nkrumah having a chit-chat with his security men before traveling to Hanoi, North Vietnam and said, ” “Ghana’s main problem since independence is this guy, general EK Kotoka, the guy who led the overthrow of Kwame Nkrumah…. I wonder why our airport is still named after him…. It shows that we don’t know what we lost or appreciate what Nkrumah did for us. Ungrateful people.”

But reacting to this, Sonnie Badu said Ghana will only enjoy peace if the airport’s name is changed, adding that Kotoka is ‘sitting at the gateway to Ghana’.

He stated: “And he is sitting at the gateway to Ghana … well you just solved the problem…until the name is changed Ghana will never have their peace… The one who got is independence should have his name at the airport.”
