CPP Is A Dead Party

Dr. Sekou Nkrumah, the youngest son of Ghana’s first President, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, says the Convention People’s Party (CPP), of which his sister, Samia Nkrumah is Chairperson, is “non-existent”.

Dr. Nkrumah told XYZ Breakfast Show host Moro Awudu on Wednesday that the CPP, which his father founded decades ago, and on which platform he became Ghana’s first President, is not the CPP of today.

He blamed the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) of strategically cannibalising the CPP and by so doing, shredding the party into non-existence.

Dr. Nkrumah, who hinted of a possible try at the Presidency in 2020 said: “…The NDC destroyed that possibility for a son of Nkrumah to be the President of this country because they destroyed the CPP platform”.

According to him, “it would have been natural for a son of Nkrumah to stand on the CPP Platform” to be President but for the destruction of the Party by the NDC.

Explaining how, in his opinion, the NDC “destroyed” the CPP, Dr. Nkrumah said: “…We can go into details as to how they fragmented the CPP front; how Nkrumah’s parties, NCP – referred to as Nkata at the time – were formed by people like Tsikata and so on, who were with PNDC and strongly affiliated to NDC” and so on.

He says the CPP now exists only “in name but beyond that it doesn’t capture people’s imagination”.
