Samia: No One Is Indispensable�We Wish Nduom Well

The Chairperson and Leader of the Convention People's Party (CPP), Samia Yaba Nkrumah, has asserted that irrespective of the decision by Dr. Paa Kwesi Nduom to sever ties with the party, the CPP remains resolute and will present a more credible candidate for the 2012 elections. Dr. Nduom, on Wednesday, ditched the CPP when he declared unequivocally that he will not contest the CPP�s presidential primary when the party opens nominations for prospective candidates to vie for the flagbearership slot. Addressing the media on a number of issues concerning the CPP and his personal political ambitions in Accra, Dr Nduom said he will contest the 2012 general elections on the ticket of a new political party. But speaking in an interview with GTV, a confident Samia Nkrumah was emphatic that the CPP will not be affected in anyway by this latest development. Recounting what occasioned the departure of Dr. Nduom from the CPP; Samia said, after the successful election of its national executive members in September, the party came to a consensus that its members needed to be better mobilized before going to congress to elect a flagbearer. This decision, she said, obviously did not go down well with some members who preferred an early congress, thus resulting in their quitting the party.
