New Times Corporation

THE NEW TIMES CORPORATION (NTC), formerly known as THE GUINEA PRESS LIMITED, was established by the first President of Ghana, the late President Kwame Nkrumah, in 1957, as the printing house for his political party – THE CONVENTION PEOPLE’S PARTY (CPP).

After the overthrow of the late President in a military putsch in 1966, THE GUINEA PRESS was taken over as a state property by NLCD (National Liberation Council Decree) 130 of 1968.

In 1971 the PRESS was transformed into THE NEW TIMES CORPORATION by an Instrument of Incorporation – Act 363, 1971, which also repealed THE NATIONAL NEWSPAPERS (GUINEA PRESS LIMITED – INTERIM RECONSTITUTION DECREE) which acquired it as state property. That Act was given further recognition by the provision of PNDC Law 42.
