“We shall accumulate machinery and establish steel works, iron foundries and factories; we
shall link the various States of our Continent with communication; we shall astound the world
with our hydroelectric power; we shall drain marshes and swamps, clear infested areas, feed
the undernourished, and rid our people of parasites and diseases. It is within the possibility of
Science and technology to make even the Sahara bloom in to a vast field with verdant
vegetation for agriculture and industrial developments” - Dr. Kwame NKRUMAH.
