CPP must unite with a common objective for victory 2020-Kabila
Acting General Secretary of the Convention People’s Party (CPP) James Kobina Bomfeh has admonished members of the party to be united with a common objective to wrestle power from the incompetent New Patriotic Party (NPP) and National Democratic Congress (NDC).
The politician said these two parties lack the ideas to develop Ghana and the CPP is the only party with the track recorded to transform the country.
Speaking on Frontline on Rainbow Radio 87.5F, Kabila as he is affectionately called asked party members to unite, but all the differences behind them and win political power from the two major parties.
Kabila as he is popularly called was reacting to the suit filed against him and two others over the holding of the party’s national congress.
The plaintiffs are: Bright Akwetey, Chairman of CPP Legal and Constitutional Committee and a card bearing member of the party, whilst Yaw Asamoah, is the substantive Central Regional Chairman of the party.
The plaintiffs in a statement of claim prayed the court for an order declaring the 2019 Regional elections of the party conducted and championed by Hajia Hamdatu Haruna and James Kobina Bomfeh, legally and constitutionally flawed.
The plaintiffs are seeking an order declaring the CPP Central Committee as constituted by the first and second defendants on or around November 8, 2019 with the inclusion of the newly elected Regional Chairperson as improperly constituted and a violation of the Constitution of the Party.
They also wants the court to declare every, and all decisions taken by the said Central Committee with the participation of the newly-elected Regional Chairpersons in 2019 as null and void.
The two plaintiffs are also seeking an order of perpetual injunction restraining and prohibiting the first and second defendants from going ahead to organise and conduct a national congress in the name of the Party with the present alleged improperly elected Regional Chairman and the Central Committee.
They are also seeking “An order declaring the Bank Account at GCB Bank (High Street Branch), Accra with an unauthorised resolution of the Central Committee and with only the first and second defendants as signatories as a violation of the Constitution of the Party and same must be closed”.
The plaintiffs praying the court to declare all decisions of the newly constituted Central Committee a nullity.
The plaintiffs aver that it was their duty to stop the numerous constitutional violations by the first and second defendants else the fortunes of their political party would be severely hampered.
But reacting to the suit, he described it as an attempt to distract activities, of the party.
He said he could not fathom why the two have filed the suit when the party followed due process in organising the elections.
The court suit he lamented is an attempt to disrupt the party’s preparation towards the 2020 presidential and parliamentary elections.
