The Convention Peoples Party (CPP) has slammed the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) for their clueless neo-liberal policies, which have impoverished the people over the years.
All speakers at a well-attended CPP forum in Ho were of the opinion that only people-orientated policies, such as those associated with the CPP alone, could move the country out of the current predicament of economic and social mess.
Professor Edmund Nminyem Delle, National Chairman, Ivor Greenstreet, Flag bearer, Kwabena Bomfeh, Director of Elections and Kadri Abdul Rauf, Director of Communications, took turns to address the forum, organized to meet the team on a “thank your tour”.
Mr Greestreet said the NDC’s often tooted social democrat credential was only a label and hardly reflected in their policy formulation, implementation and party-citizen ties.
He said the CPP had the ability to change the economic indices of the country for the better.
Mr Greenstreet said the CPP was intent on pursing its properties and had expected President John Mahama in his State of the Nation Address to provide update on the issue.
Professor Delle said the CPP structures, from the ward level to the national structures, were being invigorated to make the sleeping “CPP wake up”.
Mr Bonfer said the CPP would come out with a manifesto that could be described as people-imputed and not abstract.
He said the Party’s agenda if it won power would not be dictated from outside or that which sought the endorsement of the IMF.
“John Mahama must be removed but we should not make a mistake of bringing Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo because the two are of the same stock,” Mr Bonfer.
There was a noticeable large numbers of People with Disabilities at the forum.
