The flag bearer for the Conventions People Party, Mr. Ivor Kobina Greenstreet, has assured his supporters on Facebook that, his CPP led government will organize the next Independence Day celebration in a grand style.
“As the party that brought freedom, the CPP takes 6 March very, very seriously. It was my pleasant duty to attend the Independence Day celebration at Osagyefo’s Black Star Square. I thank President John Mahama for organising his last Independence Day celebration as President. As I told the soon to-be-retired Presidential Candidate Nana Akufo Addo at the event, the next celebration would be held by the CPP”, he stated.
The Lawyer cum Politician said his Government will make the 6oth Anniversary a colorful and human centered one that will make Ghana the center of attraction.
“Independence Day under my Presidency would again be a day of the people. We shall play, have fun, renew our connectedness and continue the never-finished task of nation building. Old Polo Grounds of 6 March 1957 was a day of the people. The forthcoming CPP government shall restore that.” he said.
Mr. Ivor Kobina Greenstreet has also called on the President to call on the Communications Minister to release a full statement that will address the embarrassment that has befallen the country from the Independence Day Brochure.
“I thank President Mahama for the steps he has taken to address#Brochuregate. They are however not enough. The President should cause the Minister for Communications to issue a full statement covering all outstanding issues. We must demand full accountability on the issue. Once that is done we need political closure. Ghana must work again” ,he stressed.
