The Convention People’s Party (CPP) has called on all Ghanaians to rise up and call for justice, accountability, transparency and fairness in all dealings in the body politic and the affairs of the country.

It said Ghanaians must speak up on issues, especially “in the sale of our natural resources, the mortgaging of our national assets for self-interest, not for national interest, and the absence of a definitive development agenda for the growth of the country”.

This was contained in a statement issued by the party and signed by its General Secretary, Nana Yaa Akyempim Jantuah, to commemorate the 71st anniversary of the call to Positive Action by Ghana’s first President, Dr Kwame Nkrumah.

The statement said while under the CPP government, factories such as the Komenda Sugar Factory, State enterprises, among others were built with the view to boosting employment, the factories had been disposed of and dissipated under the guise of divestiture implementation and private sector development.

It noted that if the factories built under the CPP had been maintained and not abandoned and disposed of, they would have been a doyen and fortress to employ and take on board our teeming unemployed youth.

“Even government houses meant for accommodating public and civil servants have been disposed of under the Fourth Republic, leaving labour in want of decent accommodation,” it said.

Positive Action

The statement said the declaration of ‘Positive Action, Self-Government’ was meant to bring change from the status quo of subjugation ad poverty at the time.

It, however, said 71 years after the declaration, Ghana’s educational system had been “run down into pieces, tattered into shambles through a myriad of experimentation of no value and purpose, a health system that takes away but does not give, with no adequate infrastructure, logistics and personnel, an economy wobbling on its knees, and a social fabric almost in ruins replicating everything foreign and touting it as more acceptable than our own religious and cultural values”.

The statement told members of the CPP that it was time to stand tall and not accept any obstacle that would prevent them from moving forward and bringing back the party’s glory again.
