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 Convention People’s Party (CPP). After the overthrow of the late President in a military coup 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the Press was transformed into The New Times Corporation by an Instrument of Incorporation – Act 363, 1971, which also repealed The National Newspapers (Guinea Press Limited – Interim Reconstitution Decree) which acquired it as state property.
