PPP holds virtual nat’l convention today

The National Committee of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP) has scheduled July 18 to hold its national convention.

Due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic that has occasioned a ban on large gatherings, the ceremony will be held on a virtual platform from the party head office in Accra.

The Communications Director of the PPP, Paa Kow Ackon who revealed that said the party would schedule another date for the election of a presidential candidate as well as parliamentary candidates.

“The convention will be done via Zoom, we have communicated to our members the regional and constituency executives should gather at one point and get the event on their laptops and phones for other members to participate.

“It is not possible for all members of the party to converge at one point and exercise their franchise, at the close of nomination, many of the officers who file are definitely going to go unopposed because some decided to throw in the towel.

“The PPP which was considered the third force in Ghana’s democratic space after an impressive electioneering campaign in 2012 and 2016 is hoping to feature prominently in the 2020 elections despite the challenges being faced by the party’s founder and 2016 flag bearer, Papa Kwesi Nduom.

“The collapse of his financial institutions, Black Shield Capital (formerly Gold coast Fund Management Limited and GN Savings and Loans, formerly GN Bank has severely impacted him and the party.

Meanwhile Lucious Sanfaa, Bono Regional Chairman of the PPP has admonished new executives and members of the party to work hard to promote the party in the region.

Mr Sanfaa who was speaking at Sunyani at the swearing-in of new regional executives of the party noted that PPP should not be an election year political party but should be seen at all times in the region.

Mr Sanfaa intimated that the party had good policies that would cater for the average Ghanaian and charged members of the party to propagate vision of the party in the region to whip up enthusiasm.

He expressed disappointed of Ghanaians in the New Patriotic Party (NPP) though it campaigned on attractive promises in the run-up to the 2016 elections saying “it has not been able to fulfill them since in the area of jobs for the unemployed.” -citinewsroom.com
