CPP Committed To Pan African Agenda

The Presidential Candidate of the Convention People’s Party (CPP) has Dr. Paa Kwesi Nduom for the 2008 elections, has said in meetings with African-American communities that one of the basic principles of his Party is Pan-Africanism.

He met a group of African-American pastors who are interested in their African Heritage in meetings in Milwaukee, Chicago and Detroit to discuss his plans for Ghana should he be elected as the next President of the Republic of Ghana. He met with the leadership of churches such as the New Hope Missionary Baptist Church in Detroit and with Rev. Dr. Herbert Martins in Chicago among others. In Milwaukee, he met with African-American children enrolled in YWCA educational programs to explain the link between Ghana and the African community in the USA.

He participated in a radio programs broadcast to national and international listeners to further explain the CPP’s link to the Pan-African agenda USA and what the Party will do to advance Africa’s credibility on the world stage. He explained how the founder of the CPP Kwame Nkrumah had gotten his start in Pan Africanism in the 1930s in the USA. One such radio program was the “New World View” radio program that allowed people to listen on www.900amwurd.com.

It is becoming increasingly clear that Dr. Nduom has established himself as the Candidate with Africa Diaspora goals and therefore “the candidate of choice for Africans in the Diaspora.”

Dr. Nduom repeated his promise to create a Diaspora Secretariat that will be fully staffed with Ghanaians with experience abroad and at home and will be properly equipped to provide timely information to Ghanaians and the African Diaspora to make it easier for them to return home and to invest in Ghana. The Secretariat will also deal with issues associated with personal security, emergency health care and the expedited clearing of goods at the ports of entry. He would consider incentives that will make it possible to tap the rich and vast expertise and experience gained abroad by those in the Diaspora to support the rapid modernization of the country. He has expressed the intent to assist African-American groups to make their travel and tours back to the continent easier and more fruitful.
