The reinstated General Secretary of the Convention Peoples Party (CPP), Nii Armah Akomfrah has asked all executives to resign else he won’t accept his reinstatement.


“I want the entire executive body to step aside for fresh elections to be organised for the party to have a new start,” he noted.


This decision was taken after the party decided to reinstate Nii Akomfrah after serving two years suspension.


Nii Akomfrah was suspended with one other, the National Youth Organiser, Ernesto Yeboah during the 2016 electioneering period following their decision to publicly disagree with a position of their flagbearer, Ivor Kobina Greenstreet.


He had stated that a Ford Expedition gift the then President John Mahama received did not amount to bribery but the two disagreed.


Two years later, the party has had a change of heart and decided to reinstate Nii Akomfrah but he would only come back on his terms.


“We need the entire leadership to step down for an interim management committee to steer affairs of the party to congress to decide on credible leadership for the party,” Nii Akomfrah pointed out.


In a response to his demands however, the party has asked him to reverse his decision or they would assume he is not interested in assuming his General Secretaryship adding that “from all indications, you are no longer interested in resuming your position as General Secretary,” the letter said in part. –myjoyonline.com
