The National Chairman and leader of the Convention People’s Party, (CPP), Professor Edmund Delle, has no intentions to contest for the presidency in the 2020 general elections.
His aide, Selasi Koffi Ackon has confirmed.
Some publications had indicated that Prof. Delle had plans to run for presidency on the ticket of the CPP.
But in an interview with Citi News, the personal assistant to the CPP National Chairman, Selasi Koffi Ackon, indicated that the reportage was untrue.
“This is coming to us as a surprise. We do not have intention for that in the name of the Convention People’s Party. I do not know where this is coming from and who is saying this. I can say on authority that we have no intention yet.”
He further added that, the office of Prof. Delle will make such a presidential intent known if any after thorough
“As and when we have any intention, we will let our friends in the media know. It takes a lot of time and consultation to make such a decision. If Prof. Delle wants to take such a decision, it will not be a simple or easy one.”
The CPP has struggled to remain a formidable party let alone win power after the demise of it’s founder and Ghana’s first President, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah.
