Trouble in Nkrumah’s CPP As National Executives Are Cleared Out

Confusion has rocked the Convention People’s Party (CPP) following the decision taken by the National Executive Council (NEC) to remove all national executive officers of the party at a meeting held in Kumasi, the Ashanti Regional capital last Tuesday (December 5, 2023).

The decision followed a petition tabled at the meeting to compel all national executives of the CPP to either voluntarily resign or be removed over their alleged incompetence.

Consequently, a vote of no confidence was then passed in all national officers which led to a misunderstanding during the meeting.

The party at the same meeting appointed a 13-member Interim Council (IC) comprising regional chairmen, a member of the council of elders, regional secretaries, regional organisers, and some representatives of women and the youth to steer the affairs of the party.

They are Alhaji Ali Adamu; Gallo Emmanuel; Godwin Opare Addo; Semefa Mawutor; Eben Agbenya; Alhaji Issah Sibiru Islam; Abdul Salam Issah; Mariam Munkaila Futa; Ebenezer Tetteh; Dr Akwesi Bosompem Boateng; Elijah Adams; Kose Dedey ; Kwame Nkrumah Botsio  with three co-opted members as Aisha Futa, Moses Yirimambo Ambing, and Osei Kofi Acquah.

A statement signed and issued by the Secretary to the IC, Kwame Nkrumah Botsio, explained that the delegates of NEC, were clothed with the requisite power under the party’s constitution to appoint an IC to steer the affairs of the party.

When that decision was announced, the General Secretary of the party, Nana Yaa Jantuah, resigned from her position. She announced her resignation in an interview with the media shortly after the meeting in Kumasi.
