Eastern Region CPP salutes members of the party
Koforidua, June 18, GNA -The Eastern Regional Steering Committee of the Convention Peoples Party (CPP) has appealed to the electorate to vote for the party at the next elections to enable it to revamp the industries put up by the First Republic, some of which had been sold out by subsequent regimes at "give-away prices or left to rot."
In a congratulatory message to commemorate the 56th anniversary of the founding of the CPP issued at Koforidua and signed by the Regional Chairman, Nana Owusu Sekyere, the committee also appealed to the leadership of the party to do their best to bring all Nkrumaists sitting on the fence into the fold of the CPP.
The message recalled that the country saw "a great improvement in their lives" under the government of Osagyefo Dr Kwmae Nkrumah during which several industries sprang up all over the country to provide employment, while there was fee free education, excellent healthcare and no single armed robbery.
It said, "unfortunately, Western powers, led by the CIA in concert with nation wreckers, overthrew the progressive government of Osagyefo in 1966 and Ghana has never been the same since", adding, "today, economic hardships and social deprivations are the order of the day."
