Dan Lartey’s Entire GCPP Joins Nduom’s PPP

The members and executives of the Great Consolidated Popular Party (GCPP) have dissolved their party and defected to Dr. Paa Kwesi Nduom’s Progressive People’s Party (PPP). According to them, after the death of the founder, Dan Lartey, there has been lots of conflicts between the executives and members of the party. They said whoever is interested in the GCPP can go for it. The party said the son of the late founder, Henry Lartey, added to their problems by asking to be made chairman and leader of the party. The party’s General Secretary, Alhassan Saeed, in an interview with Citi News indicated that “the Electoral Commissioner said he would not recognise Mr. Dan Lartey’s son as the chairman because it’s unconstitutional and because of the conflicts we decided that once we’ve lost our leader and we don’t have enough resources to move around and mobilize the party, then let’s do something else. ” He said: “The first vice chairman gave a suggestion that why not aligned ourselves with a different political party because we cannot move, then he suggested that we go with the Progressive People’s Party (PPP). ” “Then we put it in a vote and two-thirds of the membership agreed. Whoever is interested in the GCPP can come in and take it all, we are no more members of Great Consolidated Popular Party,” Saeed added.
