As Ghana prepares for the 2016 general elections, the Convention People's Party (CPP) will decide who leads the party as its flagbearer to contest the elections.

Four candidates are contesting in the presidential polls which comes off on Saturday, 30 November, 2016 at the International Trade Fair Centre, La in Accra.

Former Chairperson of the party, Ms Samia Yaaba Nkrumah, former General Secretary, Mr Ivor Greenstreet; two times defeated flag bearer and lawyer, Bright Akwetey (2008 and 2012), and President of Providence Canada, a Canadian telecommunication company Mr Joseph Agyapong, in the party’s flag-bearer race to elect a presidential candidate for the 2016 elections.

Mr. Nkrumah explained that "the injunction was actually issued. It was not just being sought. It was sought and it was granted meaning that they have cancelled the event on Saturday."

Mr. Nkrumah who is one of the sons of the CPP founder and Ghana’s first President, Dr Kwame Nkrumah was disqualified for allegedly failing to comply with the set rules.

He however, accused his sister, and a CPP presidential candidate aspirant, Samia Nkrumah of masterminding his disqualification from race.

He said: "…I find it very difficult and unfortunate that she is trying everything to bring me down, not only her but her friends…why are they doing that for? Why are they only targeting me and not the others? So it is obvious."

Ghanaians are waiting the outcome of the congress to see who emerges as the flag bearer to rekindle and lead the Nkrumaist for victory after Saturday, 30 November, 2016.
