CPP on the verge of collapse; appeals for financial support – Chairperson
The acting National Chairperson of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Hajia Hamdatu Ibrahim, is appealing to institutions and individuals to come to the aid of the party.
According to her, the party was in dire need of resources.
“We have a lot of problems. To run a party, you need resources. Other people are helping other parties. We appeal to them to help us”.
In an interview on Happy FM, monitored by theghanareport.com, Hajia Hamdatu said there were a lot of people who had benefited from the benevolence of the founding father of the party, Kwame Nkrumah. Such people she said were, therefore, obliged to help the party. But none had come forward to help the party.
“Just see some in the New Patriotic Party (NPP). Most of them had a history in the United Gold Coast Convention (UGCC). Nkrumah helped a lot of people and gave them opportunities. All those who had such opportunities must help the party. But where are all the children who can help the party?” she quizzed.
Refuting claims that Ghana’s politics was dominated by the NDC and NPP, Hajia Hamdatu said the CPP was still relevant and would soon bounce back
“I have been a loyal member of the CPP. The CPP still has energy. We are encouraging people to build the structures at the grassroots level”, she noted.
The CPP, is a socialist party founded by the First President of Ghana, Dr Kwame Nkrumah.
