Election 2020: CPP’s Ivor Greenstreet turns campaign grounds to 'classroom'

In what appears to be a serious campaign season ahead of the December 7 polls, some parties still manage to pull together some humour for their supporters and by extension, all Ghanaians.

The Convention People’s Party and Ivor Kobina Greenstreet have been the main centre of attraction and subject of social media conversations these past few weeks.

And the reason isn’t far-fetched.

Ivor Kobina Greenstreet, flagbearer of the party seems to be on a mission to give the two largest parties in the country – ruling New Patriotic party and opposition National Democratic Congress – a shocking defeat.

Thus, their campaign slogan this year is “Electric Shock” but the party which was once led by Dr. Kwame Nkrumah seems to be having a rather peculiar way of communicating their intentions to Ghanaians.

After witnessing a number of campaign details of the CPP, several Ghanaians who gave feedback on social media have said the party has already lost touch with the existing taste of Ghanaians.

However, the latest CPP campaign tour to hit the Eastern Region did not prove Ghanaians wrong as the flagbearer, together with his team, appeared to have turned the campaign grounds into a teaching ground.

While holding a cane, and assuming the posture of a teacher, Mr Greenstreet instructed his party faithful; “please say after me E. L. E. C. T. R. I. C S. H. O. C. K.”

With vibrance and enthusiasm he repetitively exclaimed “Electric Shock” for over five times while his supporters followed suit.

That did not end it, he repeated chanted “This year NDC, NPP away…”

Ivor Greentreet and the Nkrumahist party will on December 7, occupy the number 4 position on the ballot paper.
