CPP supporters urged to work hard

     Dr Abu Sakara Forster, presidential running-mate of the Convention Peoples Party (CPP), has asked supporters of the party to work hard and avoid any disharmony that might scuttle the party's chances of winning this year's general elections.
     He said the economic course the CPP was offering Ghanaians had enabled it to win more support, and that it was up to the foot soldiers of the party to capitalize on the opportunity and campaign hard to ensure victory.  
     Dr Sakara Forster, who made the call when he interacted with party activists in Koforidua on Wednesday also re-echoed the need for CPP members to work with one voice to help win the election to articulate the vision started by Dr Kwame Nkrumah.
     He said the CPP shall demonstrate to the world that Africans and Ghanaians for that matter were not short of ideas, but what has blighted the growth of the continent over the years has been the dearth of men of determination.
     The CPP, he said, is a party of conviction, peace and prosperity, which when elected, shall work assiduously to rejuvenate the economy and to bring prosperity to all the people and not to a privileged segment of the society.
     He said many Ghanaians had grown tired of the leadership being offered by the ruling party, adding that, it was time the CPP was given the platform to demonstrate to the world that Ghana's economic misfortune was the result of the lack of determination by those in power.
     He said the rejuvenated CPP was growing at the expense of the two dominant parties, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC), a situation, which required the party machinery to sustain the momentum.
     Dr Kwaku Osafo, a leading member of the CPP faulted NPP's housing policy and pledged that the CPP shall pursue an estate policy that places the poor at the heart of its programmes, since it is one of the headaches facing the working class.
     He said for the people to continue having faith in Ghana's democratic dispensation, the process must be seen as paying some economic dividend.
     The Eastern Regional Chairman of the party, Nana Owusu Sekyere, promised them of the full support of the regional executive to ensure victory at the polls.
