CPP urged to be more robust, independent
Accra, May 31, GNA -
The National Leadership of the Convention People's Party (CPP) should resolve to adopt a more robust, independent and definitive public profile in order to lay its claim to the Nkrumaist heritage, the UK and Ireland Regional Branch of the Party has said. This was contained in a resolution of the UK and Ireland Regional Branch of the Party held in London in May.
A statement to the Ghana News Agency said another resolution mandated the UK and Ireland Steering Committee to form a UK and Ireland Merger Committee with UK and Ireland members of the People's National Convention (PNC).
This is to unite Nkrumaists in the UK and Ireland, inform and contribute to the PNC/CPP merger process currently taking place in Ghana and to coordinate the unity of Nkrumaists globally.
The conference also elected Mr Nii Armah Akomfrah as Branch Chairman. Other officers elected were Branch Vice-Chairmen, Mr B.B. Ossei and Mr Bright Oduro-Kwarteng; Branch Secretary, Mr Kwami Agbodza; Branch Treasurer, Mr Emmanuel Dougan and Branch Organiser, Mr Joshua Agyekum.The rest were Branch Women's Organiser, Nana Afua Sarpong; Branch Education Secretary, Ms Mercy Akosah and Branch Youth Organiser Mr Kwabena Ohemeng
