CPP holds ‘Family Dialogue’
Accra, July 24, GNA - As part of measures to make the Convention People's Party (CPP) a formidable force in Ghanaian politics and also iron out difference among its members, the top brass of the party on Friday, organized a 'Family Dialogue' to address pertinent issues.
The dialogue, held behind closed door and attended by about 555 selected CPP top members, also formed part of the 60th anniversary celebrations of the party.
Addressing the press, Mr. Ladi Nylander, Chairman of the party, said the dialogue was also aimed at brainstorming on issues which were of concern to the party and come out with applicable solutions.
He urged the participants not to use the dialogue as a platform to attack personalities instead they should come out with workable solutions.
Mr Nylander said that the party was plagued with a lot of problems leading to the dwindling of its fortunes and it needed to undergo the some changes.
He recounted some of the fortunes of CPP such as leading the campaign towards Ghana's independence in 1957, and added, “Since then things have not been well with the party at all especially the unimpressive results in the 2008 Election, which was a real shock”.
Mr. Agyeman Badu Akosa, a participant and a former presidential aspirant of the party, urged CPP members unite and have the interest of the party at heart.
Other issues discussed included the need to review the party's constitution.
