SAMIA rebuilds the CPP …as NDUOM continues to destroy Nkrumaism
One thing interesting about the CPP is that its intra-politics is measured accordingly by two levels of competing forces, the progressives led by Samia Yaba Nkrumah and the reactionary elements led by Dr. Paa Kwesi Nduom. Samia, who hardly trumpets her biological relations with the founder of Ghana, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, has been the most formidable individual in recent past to break the pseudo-reactionary myth which holds that the CPP cannot triumph without the NPP and NDC. He won the JOMORO seat in 2008 after contesting NDC incumbent and ruling NPP candidates. With Samia’s emergence in deep CPP intra-politics, many of the progressives who had no hope under the current national party leadership have been rekindled for action in order to make it a formidable force in Ghanaian politics. She serves as a center of attraction for many Nkrumaists sitting on the fence with either other political parties or inactive. She presents a strong message which is appealing to the youth and women of this country.
