Mr. Emmanuel Anyidoho, running mate of Dr. Edward Nasigri Mahama of the People's National Convention (PNC) has asserted that, the party is the original Convention People's Party (CPP) formed by Dr. Kwame Nkrumah.
The vice presidential nominee was speaking to Kwabena Agyapong on Eboboba a political show on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm.
According to him, they are an Nkrumahist party since their vision is line with the former president.
''The PNC is the original CPP because after Nkrumah was overthrown, the CPP was banned during Busia's era and due to that, they could not participate in any election and that was how come the PNC was formed under the leadership of Liman. He was also overthrown by the military and banned from participating in any election. And so Liman invited Edward Mahama to come and and represent him. And so this shows clearly that, the PNC is the original CPP and so we do everything like Nkrumah.
The PNC he explained is more attractive and Ghanaians are yearning for it to take over power.
Factories constructed by the late Nkrumah he stated have all collapsed with many turned into chapels.
Policies followed by the current administration he argued are not right and when the PNC is voted for, it will purse what he refers to as the right policies for the economic transformation.
