The National Chairman of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Prof. Edmund Delle, has called on the rank and file of the party to stamp out divisions within the Nkrumaists front.

He said since the founder of the party, Dr Kwame Nkrumah, believed in unity and discipline, the  need to stamp out divisions in the party had become critical.
Prof. Delle gave the advice when he inaugurated a Biometric and Membership Drive Centre to  coincide with the commemoration of the forty fifth anniversary of the death of Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah, which occurred on Thursday,  April 27, 1972.

The biometric centre is also aimed at streamlining the handling and management of the party’s  funds and assets.

Laying of wreaths

Earlier, leading members of the party led by the National chairman laid wreaths at the Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum on behalf of the party .

Dr Francis Nkrumah, the eldest son of the late first President, laid one on behalf of his family.

Dignitaries present included  Mr Felix Amoah, chairman of Council of Elders of the party, Prof Delle  and Hajia Hamdatu Ibrahim, first Vice Chairman of the party.

Biometric Centre

He likened the opening of the Biometric Centre to  a disciplined  army ready to rise  and  spearhead Nkrumah’s ideas of social and economic  development.

He, therefore, urged supporters and sympathisers of the party to support the leadership in the agenda for progressive change.

He advised the rank and file of the party  to put the interest of the country and Ghanaians  first before  all others and  push for total development of the country.

He explained that the inauguration  signalled the readiness of the members to rebuild  the party for  the 2020 election.

The National Chairman  said it was no coincidence that the launch had been  themed ‘’Promoting  membership  drive now for a CPP government tomorrow’’

Prof. Delle said the anniversary to mark Nkrumah’s physical  demise was a wake up call on members to  work hard  to restore his ideas and rebuild the party, the vanguard of the working people.

In the trenches

He said the supporters and leadership should be prepared  to be in the trenches  to fight  against  the neo-liberal and neo-colonial order imposed on  the country since 1966.

Prof. Delle challenged Ghanaians to take charge of the destiny of the country, since Ghanaians ought to  manage their own affairs and lead in economic investment and management of the national economy and natural environment.

He said Ghanaians should own the resources  of the country and not foreigners  as Dr Osagyefo inculcated in Ghanaians and take good care of them for posterity.

Epitomised change

He said Dr Nkrumah succumbed to both  the physical cancer  of wounds he sustained  from the bombings he suffered  from enemies of the African revolution and the Ghana project which  he led.

Prof. Delle said apart from the cancer of the bombings Nkrumah suffered he died from betrayal by some of his countrymen. 

He noted that  Dr Nkrumah epitomised change  and stood for truth  and creativity  and that  would continue  to be  the reference  point  for Nkrumaists.
