The National Chairperson of the Convention People's Party (CPP) Madam Samia Nkrumah says the party is re-strategizing to make the CPP more attractive and effectively connect with the members particularly at the grass roots.
Madam Samia Nkrumah explained that there was a new wind of hope blowing in the CPP, which she said was the beginning of a new transformation that had started from the Volta region because the region served as the stronghold of the party in the past and all efforts would be made to reclaim the Volta region as its support base of the party in the country.
Speaking at the Volta regional Delegates Conference of the CPP in Ho over the weekend however admitted that efforts to reclaim the Volta region from the NDC would not be an easy task but was optimistic that the dream would be achieved not immediately in the 2012 general elections but rather in the 2016 elections stressing that there were positive signs in the region.
The Director of Communication of CPP, Nii Armah Akomfrah pointed out that the Volta region still remained very important to the CPP because members of the party in the region were still loyal and dedicated to the activities of the party and that it was very significant that the 46 th anniversary of the Founder of the Party, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah coincided with the Volta regional delegates conference.
The conference elected Mr. Vincent Norgbedzi as Regional Chairman, Mr. Eli Kotoku Elikem, Treasurer, Mr. Linus Fianyo, Organizer, Mr. Gideon Ashiagbor, Youth Organiser and Mr. Peter Dabrah unopposed while the conference elected Mr. Thomas Ntumi as the Vice Regional Chairman of the CPP.
