The New Patriotic Party (NPP) wishes to congratulate the Convention People’s Party for a successful round of election of party officers from the constituency level, through the regional level, culminating in the National Conference at the weekend, which elected its national officers.

We congratulate Samia Nkrumah, the new National Chairperson and her entire team for their inspiring victory. In the true spirit of multi-party democracy, we welcome their determination to strengthen the CPP and see that as a positive proposition for a healthy competition of ideas and personnel in how to move the programme for the development of our nation and the prosperity of our people forward.

As our 2012 Presidential Candidate, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, continues to press home his message to build a new society of aspirations and opportunities in Ghana and put Ghana back to work, we look forward, also, to the alternative proposals from the CPP in our collective, critical quest to free the future of Ghana from the danger of another four wasted years under the incompetent National Democratic Congress.

Long live the CPP
Long live the NPP
Long live Ghana.


Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie,
General Secretary
