Ho, Jan. 13, GNA - Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom, Presidential spirant of the Convention Peoples Party (CPP) on Sunday stated the preparedness of the Party to reclaim its lost territories to enhance the Party's chances in the December general elections.

He said, the Party had awakened to take its position in the country's politics and was combat ready to work selflessly to win the elections.

Dr. Nduom said these when he paid a courtesy call on Togbe Afede XIV, Agbogbomefia of Asogli Traditional Area in Ho to introduce himself to the chiefs and people of the Area.

He described the CPP as the best political party for the December elections and called on Ghanaians to remember the good old days when there was work for the people and vote the Party back to power. Dr. Nduom said a CPP government would separate politics from business and economics and create jobs in bid to re-introduce "work and happiness" to make the country a happy place for all, including the haves and the have-nots.
