The outgoing Volta Regional chairman of the Convention People's Party (CPP), Mr Prince Ahiadzro, has urged the leadership of the party to remove the power blocs within the party to enable it to make inroads in the political landscape before and during the 2012 elections.
“There are too many blocs within our party which is creating problems for our re-organisation and this needs to be done away with before the party can be taken serious by the electorate,” he said.
Mr Ahiadzro made the call during an interaction with the media at Dzodze in the Ketu North district at the weekend.
He called on all the power blocs to forgive each other and unite to re-organise the party to make it attractive for the electorate to vote it to govern the nation in 2013.
“The power blocs within the party have been created due to limited thinkers and lack of vision and foresight of the leadership of the party and unless they are dismantled we will not make the party attractive for the electorate,” he stressed.
Responding to a series of questions on the re-organisation of the party in the region, Mr Ahiadzro pointed out that the structures were very weak in the region and unless there was some level of commitment in the leadership of the party the situation would not change for the party to move in the right direction.
He noted that party executives in the region had become disillusioned with the way the leadership of the party was steering affairs and that there was the need to do things in the right direction.
Mr Ahiadzro cautioned those who were monopolising the party to be wary of such a situation which, if allowed to continue would derail the fortunes of the party before and during an election year.
