A flagbearer aspirant of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Samia Yaba Nkrumah, is urging members of the party to choose her to lead the party in the November elections.
According to Samia, her track record of leadership in the party sets her apart from her competitors.
She is in the race with a former General Secretary of the party, Ivor Greenstreet, private legal practitioner and one-time presidential aspirant hopeful, Bright Akwetey and Joseph Agyapong.
Speaking to Citi News after her vetting at the party’s headquarters in Accra, the former Chairperson said she is the CPP’s best bet for victory in the coming election.
“I’ve led successful campaigns, on two occasions. I was central to the campaign for us to win our seat, first in Jomoro and then in Kumbumgu and even in Talensi I demonstrated that we can work on the ground very well smoothly with the PNC. So I think my track record as somebody who is capable of attracting votes is there for everyone to see.”
Meanwhile, another aspirant for the flagbearership slot, Joseph Agyepong, who is not very well known, believes he has the right vision to change the fortunes of the party
“Everybody is looking for a leader that has a vision and direction, a leader that is taking the party and nation into its destination. We have destination to go, Ghana has it and the party CPP also has it. So the question here is which candidate is ready to take this party into its destination of winning election? It’s only Joseph Agyepong who can do that. That is why the delegates are going to choose me to lead this party,” he added.
