The Convention People’s Party (CPP) founded by Ghana’s first President, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, was built on weak principles and falsehood.
According to a historian, Nana Obiri Boahen, the “voluntary” resignation of some CPP National Executive officers is unfortunate but not surprising.
“CPP was built on falsehood by Kwame Nkrumah”, Nana Obiri Boahen, a leading member of NPP stated on Wontumi TV extending an invitation to the resigned executives to join hands with the NPP.
“.. Everybody in Ghana especially the youth today should be consistent and come to NPP. CPP from day one was built on lies and falsehood”, the former NPP Deputy General Secretary stressed.
The CPP’s General Secretary, National Organizer, National Youth Organizer, and National Treasurer are all reported to have resigned from their positions following a National Executive Council (NEC) meeting held in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region on December 5, 2023.
It was initially reported that some members of the party who participated in the meeting demanded the resignation of all the National Executive officers, accusing them of failing to “live up to expectations.”
Christian Yao Zigah, the Vice Chairman of the CPP’s Council of Mobilization was present at the NEC meeting, told journalists in Accra on Thursday, that the appointment of a said interim Committee to manage the affairs of the Party was unconstitutional.
He said it was the sole responsibility of the Council of Elders to take such decisions and urged members of the Party and the media to disregard the announcement.
“As far as we are concerned, there is no such committee. To install such a committee, the Council of Elders must be involved,” Zigah said.
Nana Frimpomaa maintained that she remained the Chairperson and Leader of the CPP and assured that she would work to stabilize and reorganize the Party for the 2024 General Election.
She rallied members of the party to remain resolute and committed, saying the “CPP will overcome its battles.”
“Nobody is going to stop the mobilization of young people. We want young people to take over this Party. This Party brought independence to the nation; it has the best policy, and we will do whatever we have to do to achieve our vision,” Nana Frimpomaa said.
