Nduom Orders Removal Of CPP Billboards With His Image
The founder and leader of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Dr. Paa Kwesi Nduom, has ordered the executives of the CPP to remove all billboards in Ghana with his image on it as the 2008 flagbearer of the party.
He said the exercise is a must so not to confuse the electorates ahead of the December elections.
Four years after the last general elections, some billboards of the 2008 Convention People’s Party flagbearer are still standing. Dr. Nduom, who broke ranks last year to form the PPP due to internal wrangling, said those billboards will be destroyed by March ending.
Speaking to Accra-based Joy FM on Tuesday, Dr. Nduom hinted that the party would have offices in all 10 regions in the country by April this year. According to Dr. Nduom, this is part of plans to ground the party as the entire nation gears up for Election 2012.
The PPP is also set to hold its first national congress as a political party on Saturday, February 25 where the flagbearer and other national executives of the party would be outdoored.
He said the PPP is the only alternative to the hardship Ghanaians have gone through under the NPP and the NDC.
Commenting on some of his ties with the CPP and whether his umbilical cord has been completely severed from the Nkrumahist party, the former minister intimated that his background as a politician cannot be without the mention of CPP, a party he led in the 2008 elections as the flagbearer.
