The 2012 presidential candidate of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Dr Abu Sakara, says he will contest the presidency again in 2016 on the ticket of the CPP.
Speaking to Citi News, Dr Sakara said the CPP stood a better chance of improving in future elections.
In the 2012 elections, the CPP managed to poll only 20,000 out of 11 million total votes cast across the country.
Although many seem to have given up on the electoral fortunes of the party, Dr Sakara said the CPP had what it took to win elections in Ghana.
“My strategy for growing the CPP is not to say that because we have not done well, we should just fold up and join the NDC,” he stated.
Mr Sakara further stated, “It may well be that what we continue to represent as an alternative vision is still relevant for the entire Nkrumaism well-being that if we work out a strategic alliance for the future, it will work out to the benefit of the CPP”.
