The Convention People’s Party (CPP) has stated its resolve to deal with the fundamental challenges facing Ghana if given the mandate in this year’s election.
According to the party, its ‘Apam foforo’ (New Covenant) ideology, presents the best source of reprieve to Ghana’s descent into mismanagement by the NPP and the NDC.
Speaking to Citi News, the Communications Director of the party, Abdul Rauf Kadr, said “We feel strongly as a party that the NDC and the NPP have failed Ghanaians and because of that, a greater chunk of Ghanaians have lost interest in the political processes.”
He however stated that, the CPP’s message offering Ghanaians a new leadership covenant, is already resonating with the masses in the Brong Ahafo Region where their Flagbearer, Ivor Greenstreet, is currently on a campaign tour.
“On that basis, Ivor Kobina Greenstreet has been traveling the length and breadth of the country meeting with groups, communities and villages explaining to them the essence of the ‘Apam Foforo which means the new covenant,” he said.
Mr. Kadr explained that “the new covenant actually stems from our own Nkrumahist beliefs of self-determination, social justice and pan-Africanism.”
He highlighted further the fact that research has shown Ghanaians hold corruption, employment and the energy issues as key concerns ahead of the polls, adding that “our message of Apam foforo has been styled in such a way that, it provides tactical responses and solutions to these key sectors of the economy.”
