The Peoples National Convention (PNC) on Friday expressed reservation about the attitude of some leaders of the Convention People’s Party (CPP) saying this was what frustrated previous unity talks among the Nkrumahist political parties.
The PNC in a statement signed by Mr Bernard Mornah, the General Secretary of the PNC on the party’s position on recent call by the CPP for fresh unity talks, said “the PNC is not opposed in principle to unity but will like it to be pursued dispassionately”.
The PNC has therefore resolved that it would like to enter and come out of any unity talks with the CPP as equal partners and this meant the dissolution of both parties in favour of the new party.
The statement said the PNC wanted “A total merger of the two parties which have a common symbol and name that will be endorsed by the congresses of both parties where the founding members of both parties will be the founding members of the newly merged Nkrumahist party.”
The statement also noted with concern the persistent efforts by some leaders of the CPP whom the PNC accused of criss-crossing constituencies to lure members of PNC to purported unity talks without any reference and regard to the leadership and processes of PNC’s leadership.
“The PNC therefore calls on CPP leadership to bring these leaders to order,” the statement said.
