Nduom Finally Confirms Intention To Contest CPP Flagbearership

The 2008 flagbearer of the CPP, Dr Paa Kwesi Nduom has declared his intention to contest the flagbearership slot of the party for next year's presidential election. Declaring his intention in an interview with Radio Ghana, Dr Nduom said his exploratory committee has identified all the problems that led to his defeat in the 2008 elections. He said he is taking steps to address the problems before Election 2012. Dr Nduom said as part of his efforts to rejuvenate the CPP, he will be opening the Osu Klottey office today in consultation with the National Executives whilst the Winneba office will be opened tomorrow. On his absence at yesterday's Nkrumah memorial lectures, Dr Nduom said he was not invited. He said that notwithstanding he spent the whole day on CPP related activities including Radio Programmes. Meanwhile, the CPP says it is embarking on massive membership drive across the country. According to the party, what is needed now is to sell its ideology to Ghanaians and convince the electorate on why the CPP should be the alternative to the NPP and NDC. The Communications Director of the party, William Doworkpor told Radio Ghana that all its internal problems have been resolved. He said the CPP will conduct its presidential primaries before December this year although he is not certain on the exact date.
