The Northern Regional Secretariat of the Convention People’s Party (CPP) has announced its support for the candidature of Professor Edmund Delle as the new National Chairman of the party.
Mr Nayi Adam Alhassan, Northern Regional Education Secretary of CPP, who announced this at a press conference in Tamale, on Friday, said “This declaration has come on the basis of several consultations, agreement and understanding reached by the entire regional executives with support from all the 31 constituencies in the region”.
The press conference was attended by all the regional executive members of the CPP with the exception of the regional secretary, who was said to have travelled.
Mr Alhassan said “Professor Delle is a staunch and outstanding member of the CPP, who has vast experience, competence and commitment, considering what he did for the party when he became the National Chairman in 2003”.
He said “We believe Professor Delle will graciously continue with the good works started by the out-going executives and initiate policies, strategies and more projects across board that will see the CPP matching the New Patriotic Party and the National Democratic Congress boot for boot to capture power in the 2016 elections”.
He said “We see Professor Delle as a unifier and fatherly figure, who will unite the party to victory, as well as father the rank and file of the party to victory in the 2016 elections”.
Mr Alhassan said “Professor Delle believes in CPP government now and will work assiduously with all to achieve this goal for the party”.
The CPP goes for its National Delegates Congress on September 18, this year in Sunyani, to elect new national executive officers to steer its affairs for the next four years.
So far, Professor Delle is the only person, who has declared interest to contest the chairmanship position of the CPP in the upcoming congress.
