‘I’m Attractive To Voters’

Samia Nkrumah has said she is attractive to voters and has asked delegates to choose her as flagbearer for the Convention People’s Party (CPP) for the November general elections.

The daughter of Ghana’s first President, Dr Kwame Nkrumah, told journalists after her vetting on Thursday that: “…My track record as somebody who is capable of attracting votes is there for everyone to see, the figures speak for themselves.”

The former Jomoro legislator is in the contest with former General Secretary, Ivor Greenstreet; legal practitioner Bight Akwetey; and businessman Joseph Agyapong.

A fifth aspirant, Dr Onsy Anwar Nathan Nkrumah, who claims to be a son of Dr Kwame Nkrumah, was disqualified from the race.

“He presented a fraudulent cheque and that was the basis [on which] the party disqualified him. The party required a banker’s draft or cash; he presented a cheque. We worked around it, we tried to find a way, and in the end we could not admit him because there was no sufficient fund to be able to admit him,” General Secretary Nii Armah Akomfrah explained.

Mr Akomfrah said the report of the vetting will be submitted to the Central Committee and “barring any incident against the four,who have filed, they will be vying for the candidacy of the party on January 30.”
