The newly elected General Secretary of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Nana Yaa Akyimpim Jantuah says the party will go back to its original blueprint of grassroots organisation to build a more formidable party.
She has therefore called on all persons who believe in the founder of the party’s ideologies, Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah to “come home” to help in the rebuilding of the party.
According to her, “It is time for everybody to come onboard to build CPP and change our fortunes in this country.”
Nana Yaa Jantuah, who is a former Public Affairs Director of the Public Utilities Regulatory Commission (PURC), was speaking on Accra-based Citi FM on Monday morning, August 24, 2020.
She said the party from its formative period, was founded on the principle of grassroots organisation which enabled the party to win elections in the country within a period of three months.
She said the party still has the skill, strength and the capacity to use grassroots organisation to turn things around even in the upcoming elections.
“We need to do a lot of organisation”, Nana Yaa Jantuah said, pointing out that fragmentation has caused the party a lot.
She said the CPP offers the best hope for Ghanaians, explaining that both the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) that have alternated governance of the country between them have failed to better the fortunes of the country.
According to her, the period that the CPP served in government brought so much development to the country and that Ghanaians can attest to that.
