Samia targets Jomoro seat again in Election 2020

Samia Nkrumah, a former Convention People’s Party (CPP) Member of Parliament (MP) for Jomoro in the Western Region, has announced her comeback in the 2020 elections.

The former National Chairperson and leader of the CPP said it was important for a change to take place in parliament to have legislators “who vote according to their conscience and in the interest of their constituencies and the citizenry and Africans at large”.

Ms Nkrumah, who failed in her ambition to be flagbearer of the CPP in the 2016 elections stressed in a Facebook post on August 4, 2019 that: “It’s time that a voice that doesn’t speak for either the Majority or the Minority, a voice that doesn’t represent party A or party B stands out to be counted.”

However, she did not indicate whether she would contest as an independent candidate or on the ticket of the CPP, which was founded by her father and Ghana’s first President, Dr Kwame Nkrumah.

Ms Nkrumah was MP for Jomoro from 2009 to 2012 and lost in the 2020 polls to the National Democratic Congress (NDC) contestant, Wing Commander Francis Anaman, a retired officer of the Ghana Air Force. –adomonline.com
