‘CPP petitioned to discipline Greenstreet’

Meanwhile, a member of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), has petitioned the party’s disciplinary committee over comments made by the party’s flagbearer, Ivor Kobina Greenstreet, suggesting that President Mahama did nothing wrong in accepting a ford expedition vehicle gifted him by a Burkinabe contractor.
