There is growing unrest within the Convention People’s Party (CPP) regarding concerns about the commitment of the party’s national executives. Tensions have escalated following a warning issued by the National Executive Council (NEC) of the party, urging its national executives to resign from their positions.
The NEC has threatened forceful removal if the national executives fail to comply. Reports by citinewsroom.com indicate that during a meeting in Kumasi on Tuesday, December 5, the NEC established a 13-member interim body to manage the party’s affairs.
In response to the decision, Nana Yaa Jantuah, the General Secretary, has confirmed her resignation and expressed her intent to reveal her next course of action later. “I’m gone. I think I’ve done what I have to do. I’m no longer the General Secretary of the CPP. In due course, I will let everybody know where my political allegiance will be. For now, it’s time for family and friends. I’m going to spend time with my family and friends.”
“For now, I’m going to concentrate on my business. They think some other people can do it better. In political parties, you do not hold on to things. I have done what I have to do these past three years and everybody has seen it. If my people say they do not want me, I can’t force myself on them,” she said.
