Presidential Candidate for the Convention People’s Party, Ivor Kobina Greenstreet has urged Ghanaians to overcome their two-party system mentality and change their voting patterns come the 2016 polls.
According to him, the writings are clear on the wall that Ghanaians are tired of the fight between the two largest parties in the country – the New Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and wants them to be bold in handing over power once again to the party of Ghana’s first president, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah.
“We (CPP) urge Ghanaians to actually understand and realize that going to polls is not about staking lottery,” Ivor Greenstreet said in an interview with Kafui Dey and Baisiwa Dowuona-Hammond on GH Today Monday.
He continued: “It’s about looking at the different parties who are there and overcoming this psychological warfare that they use that CPP can’t win so therefore it’s a wasted vote. How can your vote be ever wasted? Vote for what you consider to be right, vote for what you consider to be progress…
“These two parties (NDC and NPP), their favourite schemes, are rancor, vindictiveness, darkness, division. In all things they do, they continue to divide us,” he stated.
Mr. Greenstreet, a two-time General Secretary of the Convention People’s Party, defeated Samia Nkrumah in the party’s primaries last year to emerge as flagbearer for the November 7 general elections.
