Accra, Feb 24, GNA —
The Convention People’s Party (CPP) on Monday called on political parties and
Ghanaians to return to the progressive values to enable the country restore its
prosperity and productivity.
The CPP said, the
nation had lost its ideals and values of
hope such as, sincerity, transparency, hard work, dedication, courage and
humility of thought, whilst selfishness, hatred, and betrayal has taken over
the state of affairs, this should give way to selflessness, love and light.
The CPP in a
statement signed and copied to the Ghana News Agency by, Mr James Kwabena
Bomfeh Jnr, CPP Acting General Secretary, to commemorate February 24, 1966, the
overthrow of Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah Ghana, first President said.
According to the
statement the treachery on the February 24, where the nation sewed the seed of
indiscipline with enemy approval, was the cause of greed, unemployment,
corruption, illiteracy, disease and poverty the country was facing now.
It added that, the
regretful incident on that fateful day would not have been possible without the
tacit approval, support and participation of some insider elements who had
feigned to be a part of the revolution.
“It was possible
because trusted people caved in and sold out,” it reiterated.
further added that, up until now, the founding party of the nation still
suffered from blows of imperialism and acts of sabotage in betrayal,
defamation, blackmail and hypocrisy and called for honest admission of responsibility,
to propel the nation forward.
