I was walking on a footpath where I saw a small stream ahead of me with a stick put on it as a Bridge to help cross to the other side.
So when I got to the stream to cross, I saw an old woman carrying firewoods with foodstuffs so I gave her way to pass before I proceed my journey. When she eventually crossed, I stepped on in stick and I heard someone clear his throat. No one was there apart from the woman and myself so I turn to look at the woman but she was going.
I tried moving again and I heard someone clear his throat again! At the other side of the stream, there was a tall palmtree and Nkrumah was on the tree in a full 3 piece suit. He looked like someone who just woke up from a long sleep.
He said I should wait for him that he was coming down from the tree.. unfortunately for me, I woke up while waiting for him in the dream. I pained me soo deep because I could tell he wanted to tell me something.
So when I woke up I said to myself, it was a very interesting dream. That dream ever since is still ringing in my mind. He was in a full three piece suit on a tree telling me to wait for him is strange. I need to see someone to interpret the dream to me.”Dontoh added .
