- Last serving member of the Kwame Nkrumah administration, Franklin Jantuah says the newly elected CPP flagbearer Ivor Greenstreet wont be able to lead the party to victory because he is crippled.
- Franklin Jantuah argues that the flagbearer of the CPP is likely to face difficulty in manning the affairs of the party.
Last surviving member of the administration of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, Franklin Jantuah has argued that the newly elected flagbearer of the Convention People's Party (CPP) Ivor Greenstreet is not capable of leading the party to victory come the November 7th general elections due to his physical challenge as a cripple.
Interacting with GhOne TV in Accra, Franklin Jantuah wondered how the crippled CPP leader could lead man the affairs of the party.
“I don’t think a cripple can lead a political party. If you have a CPP with a leader who is a crippled…I wonder how he is going to rule," he stated.
Mr. Greenstreet garnered a whooping 1,288 votes of the 1,992 valid votes to beat his closest contender, Samia Nkrumah who came a distant second with 579 votes in their presidential polls of the Nkrumahist party. The contestants were Joseph Agyapong – 83 and Bright Akwetey 42 votes; a major political achievement which makes him Ghana’s first ever physically challenged presidential candidate since 1957.
