CPP calls for all inclusive approach to end dumsor

Convention People’s Party (CPP) has today called for an inter-party consultative committee to deliberate on ways of finding a lasting solution to the current energy crisis.

Eastern regional vice chair of the Party Isaac Opare Addo made the call at a news conference to mark the 49th anniversary of the overthrow of Ghana’s founding president Dr Kwame Nkrumah.

Joy News’ Regional correspondent Kofi Siaw reports that the CPP chastised the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for resorting to demonstrations in demanding solutions to the energy crisis.

The CPP called for an immediate halt in demonstrations in regard to the current power crisis because according to them, both the NPP and National Democratic Congress (NDC) have contributed nothing to ensure that Ghana has stable power.

Currently they are calling on all political parties to come together to find common ground in resolving the energy crisis.

In a related news, some  CPP members have been picketing at the Obra Spot near the Kwame Nkrumah Interchange here in Accra.

The picketers are calling on Government to return CPP assets seized by the state. The party says the phenomenon of injustice being inflicted on the CPP and Ghanaians must change.

Central Regional Secretary of the Party, Ato Mclean, lamented the loss of the properties, some of which have been seized since 1966.

He revealed that the Central regional office of the Ghana Education Service was originally the CPP’s regional office. The Sunyani Police Headquarters, he says is also housed in the seized CPP regional office.

We need those properties now, Mr Mclean said, adding that “nobody seems to say, we have wronged these people, we have to give these things back to them.”
