Emulate Nkrumah – CPP Chair advises leaders
Mrs Nana Frimpomaa Akosua Sarpong Kumankumah, Chairperson of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), has charged Ghanaian leaders to be committed to nation building in every sphere they find themselves in.
The CPP Chairperson reiterated that they were the only option to mitigate today’s socio-economic and development challenges as they did in Ghana’s first republic, from 1960 to 1966.
Professor Joshua Alabi, a leading member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), said they would support the CPP in uplifting the ideals of Nkrumah.
He said the NDC acknowledged the invaluable role the former President played in Ghana’s independence struggle.
Prof. Alabi said the CPP needed to reposition itself to remain relevant and be a force to reckon with in the country’s contemporary political space.
Mr Bernard Mornah, former Chairperson of the People’s National Convention (PNC), said Nkrumahism was more relevant today than it was yesteryears.
He said the current economic challenges pointed to the need for the ideals of Nkrumahism in meeting today’s national development needs.
The Nkrumahism ideals includes leadership of selflessness, unity and togetherness, and patriotism.
