Samia Nkrumah is being accused by some people in the Convention People’s Party (CPP) of being behind the disqualification of Dr Onsy Anwar Nathan Nkrumah from the flagbearer race.

Dr Nkrumah, who claims to be a son of Ghana’s first President Dr Kwame Nkrumah, was disqualified for paying a dud cheque to the party, according to General Secretary Nii Armah Akomfrah.

However, the Tertiary Students Charter of the Convention People's Party, Old Executives (TESCHARTO), has said Dr Onsy Nkrumah was virtually hounded out of the party’s headquarters four days ago when he attempted going through the processes towards running for the slot.

A statement jointly signed by Osei Kofi Acquah, James Samuel Ackerson, Abdul Rahman Basit, Tweneboah David, and Kwame Amprah Twum said there was a conspiracy among Samia Nkrumah, daughter of Ghana’s first President – who is one of four cleared to contest the slot – and Mr Akomfrah as well as National Youth Organiser Ernesto Yeboah, to frustrate Dr Onsy Nkrumah’s bid.

Mr Kofi Acquah told ClassFMonline.com in an interview that Mr Yeboah and some pro-Samia youth went on the rampage at the party’s Asylum Down headquarters and destroyed all posters as well as anything that had Dr Nkrumah’s face on it. He also claimed Mr Akomfrah locked out Dr Nkrumah from his office when he (Onsy) went there to go submit himself to processes for the contest. Mr Acquah claimed Samia Nkrumah looked on with happiness as Dr Onsy Nkrumah was being hounded out of the headquarters.

As far as Mr Acquah is concerned, Samia’s posture betrayed her alleged orchestration of Dr Onsy Nkrumah’s disqualification from the race. Four people are being vetted for the race. Apart from Samia, the rest are former General Secretary Ivor Greenstreet, Mr Bright Akwetey, and Joseph Agyepong.

Samia Nkrumah recently confirmed assertions by her brother De Sekou Nkrumah that Dr Onsy Nkrumah, proposed marriage to her a few years ago.

"I only speak the truth, so, yes I confirm," Dr Nkrumah's daughter told Kwadwo Asare-Baffuor Acheampong (KABA) on Asempa FM’s political talk show 'Ekosii Sen' on Wednesday December 30, 2015 when asked if, indeed, Dr Onsy Nkrumah ever proposed to marry her.

Pressed further by KABA about why she turned him down, Samia Nkrumah said: "Oh dear me! Look we're serious ooo! I'm a married woman and I have a son… But the point of the matter is this Onsy chap is part of a political project to destabilise Nkrumah's followers," she added.

Dr Onsy Nkrumah surfaced onto the scene about four years ago with a claim that he was one of the children of the pan-Africanist. Dr Kwame Nkrumah’s known children are: Prof Francis Nkrumah, Dr Gamel Nkrumah, Samia Nkrumah and Dr Sekou Nkrumah. Gamel, Samia, and Sekou have, on several occasions, challenged Dr Onsy Nkrumah to prove he is a biological son of the late African leader.
