Dr. Onsy Nathan Kwame Nkrumah, former Vice Chairman of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), has submitted his nomination form to contest as the party’s flagbearer.
This comes as the party prepares to take over authority from the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Addressing journalists, he stated that many Ghanaians in the diaspora asked him to lead the country that his father, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, once led to reform and make Ghana a better place.
He stated that he was motivated to see the CPP re-established, re-organized, and sincerely serve Ghanaians once again.
“CPP has once led the country and is ready to work with any individual to make this country a better one”. Dr Onsy Nkrumah said he had been an active advocate of Pan-Africanism across the world, making him the right candidate to lead the CPP and Ghana.
He said CPP’s independence would help provide freedom for a change and appealed to Ghanaians in the diaspora to return home and vote for him to lead Ghana.
Dr Onsy Nkrumah said Ghanaians had tried both the NPP and NDC and were equally let down by both parties.
He told GNA that Ghanaians had suffered enough under the governance of the NPP and the NDC from 1992 to 2023 and deserved much better governance for accelerated development.
Dr Onsy Nkrumah is competing with Nana Akosua Frimpongmaa Sarpong Kumankumah, as they both lead the probability of winning the CPP flagbearership race.
According to the party, picking up and submission of forms had been peaceful.
