The Convention People’s Party (CPP) will today [Saturday] October 28, 2016 launch it manifesto for the 2016 presidential and parliamentary elections. The presidential candidate of the party, his running mate, party executives and supporters of the party will converge at the Ghana Academy of Arts and Sciences here in Accra for the launch. The manifesto launch dubbed ‘Apam Fofro’ by the presidential candidate Ivor Kobina Greenstreet and the National Chairman Prof. Edmund Delle, at 9 a.m. The CPP said the ‘Apam foforo’ manifesto is a policy document that outlines the aspirations of the party on various issues regarding national and international affairs. The Chairman of the party said the policy document is a response to “the people’s cry for a new covenant in Ghana.” Prof Delle said ‘Apam foforo’ is “a Fante expression which literally means ‘new covenant’. The ‘Apam foforo’ manifesto is the action plan that underpins CPP’s campaign to win the hearts and thumbs of the Ghanaian electorate in the December 2016 general election.’’ Sharing some thoughts of the CPP’s development blueprint, Prof Delle said: “The sense of purpose and urgency which the CPP brought to national development has essentially been missing since 1966. It is time we restored it. Our people can wait no longer. ’’So far, the CPP flag bearer has proved equal to the task and given his competitors in the NDC and the NPP a good run for their money. Indeed, before the launch of the ‘Apam foforo’ manifesto, many of the electorate have already bought into the vision of the party, towards improving the lives of all Ghanaians,’’ Prof. Delle said.
