Kumasi, July 7, GNA- Dr. Paa Kwesi Nduom, flag bearer of the Convention People's Party (CPP), has said the party was capable of adopting sound economic policies towards the socio-economic development of the country.

He, therefore, appealed to Ghanaians to vote massively for the party in the December 7 polls.

Dr Nduom, who was addressing a press conference in Kumasi on Monday, said the CPP was still formidable to unite the people to ensure the development of the country.

He said the people have been experiencing problems including increasing inflation, fallen rate of the currency and unemployment which affected development.

The CPP flag bearer said it was the CPP that could address such problems to put smiles on the face of Ghanaians. Dr Mduom said the party has been advocating change and that Ghanaians would have money in their pockets if the CPP is given the opportunity to administer the country.

He said the CPP administration led by the late Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, has remained the best party in the country. Dr Nduom explained that under the Dr Nkrumah led CPP the country experienced a lot of developments and cited the provision of electricity for domestic and industrial purposes, good railways system and the establishment of many enterprises.

He said that the party also bequeathed to the country an agenda to bridge the development gap between the people in the Northern part of Ghana and those in the Southern sector towards national unity. Dr Nduom stressed "We should unite and give proof to Ghanaians that given the chance, we can unite our polarized society to move the country ahead as one nation, one people with one common destiny". He dispelled the notion that the CPP was fragmented and asked the party members including George Aggudey, Professor Agyemang Badu Akosa, Mr Kwaku Osafo, Mr F.W.Akuffo and others to join hands in strengthening the party. He commended the media for disseminating information about the party to Ghanaians and asked journalists to give equal coverage to all political parties.
