As various political parties in the country prepare in earnest for the 2020 polls, the Convention Peoples Party, (CPP) has expressed its unwavering determination to convincingly win the Cape Coast North Parliamentary seat.

The Party has, therefore, developed new programmes towards a paradigm shift in its campaign strategies to entice the electorates to vote for its candidate.
The 2016 Parliamentary Candidate of the CPP, Peter Caesar Kwegyir Aggrey, disclosed this in an interview with the Ghana News Agency in Cape Coast on Wednesday and that the Party had overcome the 2016 electoral defeat.
He said it was, therefore, working at re-awakening the grassroots to buy into the new vision of the Party and overturn it’s abysmal performance in the 2012 and 2016 elections.
“The immediate focus of the Party is to galvanise massive grassroots support for a landslide electoral victory in the 2020 polls,” Mr Aggrey said.
That involves the revival of the rank and file of the Party as key to sustaining grassroots mobilisation at the branches, communities and workplaces to identify dedicated sympathisers and galvanise their support towards a strong, united and vibrant political party.
Mr Aggrey allayed the fears of supporters and sympathisers that a vote for the CPP was a waste and gave the assurance that the Party was ready to work assiduously to win parliamentary seats and possibly clinch the presidential as well.
He said the CPP was focused on how to develop the human resource base of the Constituency, especially the youth, to empower them to establish small scale businesses.
“The Party would encourage and empower women with resources, equip them with skills and create jobs to become the key driving force in the fight against endemic poverty, hunger and malnutrition to facilitate Ghana’s achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) by 2030,” he said.
“What our industrious women in the constituency need is not only micro credit support but increased mechanisation, technological innovation, education and skills development to create wealth to facilitate accelerated national development.”
On graduates unemployment, Mr. Aggrey indicated that the graduates would be encouraged and assisted to do internship in computer hardware and software, acquire leadership and entrepreneurship training free of charge to build their capacity to become independent.
They would also be given practical and career-oriented training, assisted to develop personal business plans where they would receive financial literacy education, counselling and access to business development services, he said.
Mr. Aggrey encouraged beneficiaries of the Youth Empowerment Programme to utilise the knowledge and skills acquired to better their lot and that of their peers.
To achieve the renewed vision of the Party, he called for the unflinching support of all, especially the Executive, to work together to to maintain Party cohesion.
The Government, he noted, should prioritise prudent socioeconomic management, security, and good governance to emancipate Ghana’s economy.
