NewsPolitics The CPP is in a better position to address Ghana's issues—The Chairperson

Mrs Beauty

 In order for the Convention People's Party (CPP) to lead Ghana's economic development next year, the party has urged Ghanaians to vote for it.

The Party claims that Ghana's seven-year development plan, which was initiated in the 1960s by the country's first president, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, is still relevant today, particularly in light of Ghana's current economic predicament.

The call was made by CPP Chairperson Nana Akosua Frimpomaa Sarpong Kumankumah, who stated that Ghanaians must make the difficult choice of electing the CPP for power in the 2024 general election, ending the duopoly of the NDC and NPP.

She made this statement at a news conference on Friday in Accra to mark the 57th anniversary of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah's overthrow of the CPP government.

She concluded, "Enough is enough," adding, The issues cannot be resolved by the duopoly. As previously stated, success can be replicated. It is not magic; rather, it is a formula. It's a copy-paste job. After it has been tested, cut it and paste it. Economic independence must accompany independence. We are currently experiencing political independence without economic independence, which is meaningless.

Nana Akosua Kumankumah said that the ruling NPP and opposition NDC had shown over time that they did not have what it took to bring Ghanaians the development they wanted.

She said that the Nkrumah administration's seven-year development plan, which was cut short by the coup d'etat in 1966, had major development projects that the Party wanted to complete to bring the country back to its former glory.

"That is insanity when you abandon something that has worked and keep doing the same thing that leads to the wrong results. We will never again place blame on leaders. She stated, "Ghanaians should stop placing blame on this nation's leadership."

The leadership should not be held accountable. The Ghanaians, as a whole, are to blame because, if they had done it, they would have already done it by now,” the Chairperson continued.

On February 24, 1966, Colonel E. K. Kotoka and General Akwasi Afrifa toppled Dr. Kwame Nkrumah and the CPP government.

Nana Akosua Kumankunah emphasized once more that Dr. Kwame Nkrumah's CPP government's overthrow remained the nation's darkest day.

She said that the unfortunate event not only slowed Ghana's growth but also made people's economic conditions worse.

She stated that the Party had outlined a number of programs through March of this year in honor of the late President Nkrumah.

Dr. Maxwell Awuku, a former Deputy Eastern Regional Minister under Dr. Hilla Limann's administration, emphasized that Ghana must strengthen its revenue mobilization efforts in order to reduce its reliance on donors from abroad.

He paid tribute to Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, who, according to him, ensured the country's economic independence during his lifetime.

"During Nkrumah's time, factories, farms, and everything else Ghanaians can build were built. Ghanaians ought to be aware that the Akosombo dam loan was the only loan Nkrumah took out for all of these revolutionary advances. He stated, "Nkrumah created everything, and the funds used were internally generated funds (IGF)."

The CPP's Director of Communications, Mr. Sylvester Sarpong Soprano, urged young people to join the Party and support it with their votes in order to win the 2024 election.
