The release said the CPP  would rally the hearts and minds of Ghanaians dissatisfied with the duopoly of sameness since 1993, by joining forces to show a difference in serving the people of Ghana.

It also said the party regarded leadership as service to God and humankind and not abuse, debauchery or self-gloating.

“To change the power structure, mobilisation and allocation of resources, the CPP will lead to completely change the Constitution of 1992 which constitutes the foundation to the deceptive life Ghana is leading, particularly in governance,” the release said.
