CPP marks 39th anniversary of Dr Nkrumah’s death

The Convention Peoples Party (CPP) on Wednesday called for a united front towards nation building and condemned vindictive politics, which had retarded accelerated development.

Speaking to the Ghana News Agency in Accra on Wednesday after the 15th in the series of “How The CPP Will Do It: Education,” Professor Edmund N. Delle, Former Chairman of the party called for new political culture of collaboration and co-operation among the various stakeholders.

The series coincided with the 39th anniversary of the death of Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah, Ghana’s First President.

Prof Delle said the greatest legacy Ghanaians could give to the memory of the Founder of the nation on the 39th anniversary of his death was to emulate Dr Nkrumah’s great sense of commitment to duty and patriotism as a Ghanaian and an African which was demonstrated through his service to mankind.

He noted: “Dr Kwame Nkrumah was certainly a great gift to Africa and we must all take inspiration from him.”

On the way forward for the CPP, the former Chairman and Leader who is seeking for re-election noted: “To build a formidable and unified party, it is expedient for the party to understand and adopt the visions and dreams of the late President in order to construct programmes and policies that would be consistent with Dr Nkrumah’s ideas.”

As part of the commemoration, the CPP led by Mr Ladi Nylander, Chairman laid a wreath on the tomb of the first President and his wife at the Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum in Accra.
