My generation is unfortunate; we are being taught a very diluted history. A history written and sponsored by the very elite that opposed growth and enlightenment of the general population with a façade slogan which read, “Self-Government in the shortest possible time.
” One may ask, “how short was the shortest possible time?” But thankfully, as Bob Marley said, “you can fool some people sometimes but you can’t fool all the people all the time.”
It took Kwame Nkrumah not more than a year to realize these people [the UGCC] were not Nationalists but only owners of capital who needed to protect their investments and control as many proletarians as they can.
In simple terms, the 1% extremely wealthy against the 99% dirt poor. So the Show Boy had to break away to form the Convention People’s Party, the ‘obiaa’ party. A party that welcomed the poor, the rich and minorities like myself.
The coin has unfortunately flipped, the descendants of the tricksters, the National headaches- the NPP and the NDC have been running on the corridors of power and rapping the state without compassion.
They have collectively stolen monies worth trillions of dollars and the stealing will continue unabated until there is a mental revolution and reorientation where they are chased into the abyss of opposition never to be seen or heard of again.
The decisions they take are all aimed at funding the luxury they so desire so they won’t mind if it means exorbitant fees and senseless taxes. Only one thing matters, the debt machine, which is the people. We shall always be in debt so they can leave large.
Unlike the UGCC ideology and its descendants, the CPP identifies itself with the people and feels their pain and would at any given opportunity and within it means, come to their people’s rescue. The CPP’s ideology is people focused and Kwame Nkrumah has taken a break since April 1972 but the ideology is still alive.
One thing is clear, an ideology cannot easily be killed. There was not even a single word of either condemnation of GIJ management’s decision or solidarity with students from the metamorphosed UGCC- NPP and NDC but the CPP came to the aid of students in it little way.
This is not new to the CPP at all. Kwame Nkrumah had to establish Ghana National College to take in students that were unlawfully dismissed for standing up against injustice.
Chairperson and Leader of the Convention People’s Party, Nana Frimpongmaa Sarpong Kumakumaa has supported needy students of Ghana Institute of Journalism with Ghc5000. She made this presentation at the party headquarters to members of the Concerned Tertiary Students of GIJ.
The group was represented by Smart Takyi and Farida Yeboah, level 400 students of the Institute. She did this in solidarity with students who were affected by the notice sent by the school.
It is her hope that the money will be used judiciously to give some relief to students who haven’t made the 60% fee payment of fees.
Long live the CPP.
