Their relationship blossomed, leading to the birth of Francis before Dr Nkrumah left Ghana to study at Lincoln University in the United Kingdom.

Upon Dr Nkrumah’s return to Ghana, his son Francis had already distinguished himself academically, attending St. Augustine’s College and excelling in his O Levels.

By 1952, Dr Nkrumah had risen to become the leader of government business and was living with Francis in Accra New Town. He secured a Cocobod scholarship for Francis to study medicine in Germany.
