An elder of the Convention Peoples Party (CPP) in the South Dayi Constituency, Mr Clemence Asare a. k.a. Kofi Sabon, has blamed the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for the woes of the CPP.
He said it was not advisable for the CPP to collaborate with the NDC so far as political activity was concerned.
According to him, the NDC had attracted a large number of CPP activists by confusing them that it was restoring the Nkrumaist ideology but after joining them they formed a new party altogether and relegated Nkrumaism to the background.
Mr Asare told the Daily Graphic at Ho that “if you claim to be an Nkrumaist and you do not belong to the CPP, then you are a liar, an opportunist and a renegade. Because, Kwame Nkrumah in his life formed only one political party, known as the CPP and, therefore, all splinter groups claiming to be Nkrumaists are opportunists,' he said, threatening that 'we shall soon send people to court for claiming to be what they are not."
“If you are not a follower of Christ, then you are not a Christian”, he stressed, adding that “if you are not a follower of Kwame Nkrumah and have faith in the only party he formed, then you are not an Nkrumaist”.
Mr Asare said the NDC should show remorse for the way they dismembered the CPP, for the whole world to know what they did to the CPP.
He contended that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) could be a better ally to CPP because they were not fighting the CPP.
On his political future, Mr Asare said he was seriously considering contesting the CPP parliamentary seat in the South-Dayi constituency on the ticket of the CPP in the 2008 general election, adding that he would, however, not rule out an alliance with the NPP.
