I am fully committed to Nkrumahist ideals – CPP running mate

The Running Mate for the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Nana Gabby Nsiah Nketia, has rubbished accusations by critics that his allegiance is still with the New Patriotic Party (NPP), after disclosing in a TV interview that he still has his NPP membership card.

This follows calls by the Youth League of the CPP is demanding the immediate removal of the Vice Presidential nominee.

At a ceremony to officially outdoor him, Mr. Nketia said he accepted to be the running mate for the CPP because he believed in the ideals of the founder Dr. Kwame Nkrumah and thus was fully committed to its cause. “I listened to Ivor Greenstreet.

I heard his programmes, his ideas and how he wants to carry on the activities of Kwame Nkrumah,” he said.

“We all know the ideals of Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah; the seven year development plan and all the wonderful things he did. I myself I am a beneficiary of Kwame Nkrumah’s ideology,” Mr. Nketia retorted.

The leadership of the CPP has since said its chances in the upcoming elections will not be affected by the open announcement by its vice presidential nominee that he is still a member of the opposition NPP.
