Dr Abu Sakara, flagbearer of the Convention People’s Party for Election 2012, has paid a courtesy call on Nana Kobina Nketia V, Onanhene of Essikadao in the Western Region, as part of his tour of the area.
The flag bearer and his entourage introduced themselves to the Essikadao Traditional Council and sought the advice and blessings of members.
A statement from the CPP, copied to the Ghana News Agency on Friday, said Dr Abu Sakara praised the CPP for its track record of excellent leadership.
He said: “CPP would usher in a period of transformation with sustainable and meaningful development, and would not do anything to harm the security of the country”.
Nana Akosua Frimpongmaa Sarpong Kunankuma, running mate of Dr Sakara, called on the traditional leaders to take up leadership positions in the country since they had the welfare of the people at heart.
Nana Nketia V said that Ghana would have been transformed into an economic giant like China if it had followed the ideals of late President Kwame Nkrumah, first President of Ghana.
The traditional ruler said he has confidence in the CPP and asked the leadership to sustain its commitment to the implementation of the vision of Dr Nkrumah.
Dr Sakara met with CPP parliamentary candidates in the region and presented them with additional party posters, flags and paraphernalia, and motorbikes to facilitate their activities.
He asked them to intensify their electioneering to enable the party win the polls.
