I am fast losing sympathy for the NPP – Sekou Nkrumah

Last son of Ghana’s first President, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, stated that he is fast running out of sympathy for the opposition New Patriotic Party.

Dr. Sekou Nkrumah declared support for the NPP prior to the December General Elections after he fell out with the governing NDC.

His decision to quit the NDC, the party he campaigned for, during the 2008 elections came about after President Mills fired him in July 2010, as Coordinator for the National Youth Authority.

The controversial son of Nkrumah then turned his energies into supporting the campaign of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), as part of his contribution to help kick out the ruling NDC from office.

However, he seemed despondent at the NPP’s refusal to accept the outcome of the elections, subsequent to which the party has filed a petition at the Supreme Court challenging the results.

“I am fast losing sympathy for the NPP, but I also don't want to rejoin the NDC. What do I do? Go and drink the sea?!!,” Sekou posted on social website, facebook account on Tuesday.

It is unclear which political party Sekou intends to flirt with, after indicating on the same platform that he has no intentions of rejoining the ruling party.
