Ms Samia Nkrumah, National Chairman of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), at the weekend stated the party’s readiness to commence unity talks again with the People’s National Convention (PNC).
This, she said, is aimed at building a unified Nkrumaist force to unseat the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the December General Election.
She therefore urged the leadership of the PNC to reconsider coming back to the negotiation table after its national congress to restart sincere talks to unify the two parties.
Delivering a solidarity message on behalf of the CPP at the National Delegates’ Congress of the PNC in Sunyani, Ms Nkrumah stressed the need for the two parties to forge a united front to capture power.
She said the two parties share the ideology of Dr Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana’s first President, adding; “we have a common destiny to transform Ghana”.
The congress of the PNC is on the theme: “A United PNC for Victory in 2012.”
Ms Nkrumah paid tribute to members and the leadership of both parties for ensuring and sustaining the ideology and tradition of Dr Nkrumah, which she said had “survived the test of time”.
“Just last week, I was in Ethiopia to unveil the statue of our great father and founder Dr Kwame Nkrumah and this is a confirmation that (political) emancipation is still essential and possible today,” she said.
Alhaji Ahmed Ramadan, National Chairman of the PNC urged the party members not to be swayed by the internal wrangling and rather continue with their enthusiasm that had seen them through.
