CPP is On Course - Nduom 8/6/2007
Dr Paa Kwesi Nduom, a leading member of the Convention People''s Party (CPP) says the party is going through a changing phase which is making it more united, youth-oriented and electable

This, he said, was as a result of a strategy to create the platform for more talented youthful people to join the party, as well as to develop policy agenda in as much detail as possible and also to unite the rank and file of the CPP party.

"The strategy is working, as more people are joining the party everyday." he said adding that it will provide the party the competitive edge to win the 2008 elections.

He told a section of the media in Accra yesterday, that the party is currently developing the youth who are the party''s powerful weapon for the next elections and also encouraged individuals / groups to form fun clubs in their localities.

He called on sympathisers of the CPP to come on board since the party is becoming more vibrant and purposeful towards winning•

"The CPP is a viable alternative to the NPP and NDC," he said, adding that "the thinking of CPP winning the next elections will not be a big stretch of imagination."

That, he explained, was because of the party''s vibrant campaign which is increasing the party''s support base across the country.

"All of us want something new in the party, and we are going to achieve that through massive strategic campaigning, he said.

On the increasing number of aspirants for positions in the party as well as the flagbearership, Dr. Nduom, the man who history will judge favourably as the man who brought Ghanaians $547 Million and until recently the Minister of State in Charge of Public Sector Reforms, noted that it was a good for the Party.

He advised that the competitive spirit should not be a divisive tool but one that would whip up interest in the party and engender unity.

He noted that visits to the various constituencies have revealed that the party members have become more committed and prepared to invest in the party.

Asked about what the party''s campaign message would be, he explained that apart from projecting the ideals of the party, the CPP would build on the foundations already laid by past governments.

"We will take and continue with the good ones and ,throw the bad ones away," he stated.

He noted that the next elections would focus on a better alternative to the NPP and NDC, rather than the urge for change of government as was the case in the 2000 elections.

"For that reason, the CPP is positioning itself to be that better alternative," he stressed.
