Nkrumaist unity unlikely

A united Nkrumaist Party, as a political force in Fourth Republic Ghana is unlikely, Kosi Dedey, a former leading member of the Convention Peoples Party (CPP) has predicted.

He was giving his impression on the current political landscape in an interview with the Ghana News Agency at Ho.

Mr Dedey asserted that rather than being committed to, and guided by principles, personalities and parties involved in such unity projects concerned themselves with who should hold which positions.

He said as a result, parties and some personalities involved lent themselves to manipulation by the National Democratic Congress and the New Patriotic Party to satisfy their limited interests.

Mr Dedey said previous unity initiatives were short-lived because people were more focused on the spoils.

He said “we have been at it for the past 10 years, especially as elections got near”.

Mr Dedey said questions of accountability and transparency in governance in the Fourth Republic reflect the internal workings of the political parties.
