The leadership of the Convention People’s Party (CPP) has said less than 10 per cent of its members have resigned.
According to the chairperson, Samia Nkrumah, the defection has not in any way crippled the cohesion of the party.
In an interview with Citi News, Nkrumah stated that the leadership of the party is embarking on a family convention in all 10 regions to bond and show their appreciation to existing members for their resilience and support despite the recent happenings in the party.
She added that the CPP is not perturbed in any way by the progress of Dr. Nduom’s Progressive People’s Party (PPP).
Samia also indicated that “I’ve just arrived in Ho for our first family conventions and basically leadership is moving to the regions and constituencies to connect and link up with our members. ”
“Also it is also to thank all those who stood firm and resolute to regroup and mobilize for 2012. By the way, the majority of our members are still with us. It is only less than per cent that are no longer with us. ”
She added: “We wish people in other parties well, this is multiparty democracy. We have a solid political force and ideology to hold on to. ”
