The Convention Peoples Party (CPP) says it will go ahead with its primaries to elect the party’s flagbearer Saturday in spite of a suit by a member of the party, Onsy Nkrumah.
According to the party, all it cares about is to elect their flagbearer and making their congress successful.
Ernesto Yeboah, chief commander of the youth wing of the CPP in an interview with yen.com.gh said all is set for the programme tomorrow. “Want we care about right now is about our congress, we don’t care who is in court…”
He further noted that the party is expecting between 2700 to 3000 delegates at the Trade Fair Center in Accra.
“... Everything is underway, the Electoral Commission is on standby, all ballot papers have been printed. All candidates contesting in this primary have also been informed and given the necessary information that they have to have, regarding the election, security arrangement is also great,” Yeboah added.
There are four contestants competing for the flagbearer position for the CPP tomorrow. The contestants are – Samia Nkrumah, Lawyer Bright Oblitei Akwetey, Mr Ivor Kobina Greenstreet and Mr Joseph Agyepong, a party stalwart in the diaspora and businessman.
Dr. Onsy Nkrumah filed a petition at the Human Rights court seeking to injunct the party’s presidential primaries which comes off tomorrow, January 30.
According to him, his disqualification by the party was unjust and baseless.
