The Convention People’s Party has described the President and the ruling NDC as hypocrites.
This was after the President stated in his State of the Nation’s address that he was awaiting advice from the Attorney General on how to proceed with on reports of some confiscated CPP assets which the party want to be returned.
The party says the President has been made formally aware of the situation for a long enough time within which he could have acted.
The CPP’s Deputy Communications Director, Ernesto Yeboah on a post on his facebook wall took a swipe at the President.
“For President Mahama to tell Ghanaians that he is now waiting for advice from the AG is the most cruel thing to say right now. This is president Mahama’s ruse to further delay the process and deny JUSTICE,” he opined.
He also laments that, “only the CPP’s founder, Kwame Nkrumah, is declared a wanted criminal in the 1992 constitution; only the CPP has some of its members barred from contesting any public office including a post of Clerk; only CPP and its founder are isolated in government textbooks and vilified; only the CPP has all it’s properties seized” and calls on international bodies like the United Nations, UNHCR, Amnesty International, Mo Ibrahim Foundation, among several others to intervene as in his view, the situation constitutes a “hypocrisy and not a democracy”.
