The daughter of Ghana’s first President, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, has filed her nomination forms to contest the flagbearership position of the Convention People’s Party (CPP).
In an interview with Accra-based Citi FM after filing her nomination, the former Jomoro Member of Parliament (MP) said the CPP is ready to wrestle power from the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC).
“It’s a good sign for us that we are ready and now I can devote the next two weeks to touching base with our constituencies ahead of our congress to elect our 2016 flag bearer,” she said.
Ms Nkrumah added that the CPP is “ready and we are looking forward to a very vigorous and active campaign where I’m confident that we’re are going to convince the people of Ghana that it’s time for a revolution at the ballots.”
“The two-party system has failed and I believe we offer the best alternative for a new way of managing our economy. We are the only party that is clearly saying that the conditions of the IMF are unsustainable,” she added.
The party opened nominations in December 2015, for aspiring presidential and parliamentary candidates.
The party’s primaries is scheduled to take place on January 30, 2016.
