CPP launches campaign to win Wa Central seat

The Convention People's Party (CPP) has launched its campaign in the Wa Central Constituency with the aim to wrestle the seat from the National Democratic Congress (NDC) this time round.
    As part of the broader strategy, the Party is undertaking house-to-house campaigns and inter-personal contracts to complement political rallies in the Municipality, Mr. Issahaque Sulemana, CPP Parliamentary candidate for Wa Central told the Ghana News Agency in Wa.
     He said the key thrust of the campaign will be to explain policy issues including the CPP's Manifesto to the electorate, especially the youth.
     Mr Sulemana held that the CPP has come to stay in the Municipality and pledged the commitment of the leadership to work with the youth "to pull a surprise" in the December polls.  
     He said the CPP manifesto centred on human development and that it sought to address the economic hardships of Ghanaians.
     He said a CPP administration would provide the youth with employable skills and rehabilitate abandoned factories that Dr. Kwame Nkrumah established to take onboard the youth to contribute their quota to the national economy.
      "The CPP's vision is to involve the youth in its activities and implement policies and programmes that were appropriate for self-uplifting and nation- building through the utilization of their talents," Mr. Sulemana said.
     He said of all the candidates who were vying for the Wa Central seat, he stood tall among them because he sees the problems of the youth better than the others.
     Mr. Sulemana appealed to supporters of the CPP to emulate the Party's Presidential Candidate, Dr. Paa Kwesi Nduom, who, he said, had been campaigning without insulting or vilifying opponents.
     He urged the supporters not to do anything that would tarnish the Party or Dr Nduom's image.
     Mr. Sulemana commented on the Wa chieftaincy dispute and said he was a unifying factor and had the ability to mediate to restore peace.
