Court Upholds CPP’s Chairperson In Landmark Verdict

Nana Akosua Frimpomaa Sarpong Kumankuma


In a resounding victory for democratic principles and adherence to good governance, the Convention People’s Party (CPP) triumphantly announces the High Court’s ruling in favor of the Chairperson and Leader of the party, Nana Akosua Frimpomaa Sarpong Kumankuma, dismissing claims leveled agains t her.

This momentous judgment reinforces the sanctity of the party’s leadership structure, forbidding any illicit attempts to impede the Chairperson in carrying out her duties.

The court decisively rejected the bid to oust Nana Kumankuma, deeming the action unauthorized by the CPP’s Central Committee, the core decision-making body of the party.

Emphasizing the misuse of legal processes to pursue an unjust agenda, the court affirmed that the interim council, advanced by certain factions, lacks legitimacy within the CPP’s framework.

This ruling vindicates the principles of responsible leadership, internal democracy, and governance protocols within the party.

Commending the unwavering dedication and competence of legal representatives from Merton & Everett LLP, led by Jamaldeeen Tonzua and Oliver Barker Vormawor, the CPP expresses profound gratitude for their pro bono service, instrumental in securing this legal victory.

This landmark verdict underscores the judiciary’s role in upholding justice and fairness, amplifying the CPP’s commitment to democratic values, integrity, and advancement.

The party urges unity among members and supporters to propel collective progress and steer towards the 2024 Presidential and Parliamentary elections with a renewed zeal.

In a contrasting narrative, internal tensions within the party have surfaced, marked by conflicting assertions regarding leadership transitions. While the claims of an Interim Council have sparked controversy, with the Chairperson asserting her continued mandate, the validity of these parallel structures remains contested.

Clarifications issued by the Vice Chairman of the Council of Elders and prominent party member, Christian Yao Zigah, challenge the legality of the Interim Council, emphasizing adherence to constitutional provisions and accountability frameworks within the CPP.

Amidst these intricacies, Bright Akwetey, a vocal supporter of the Interim Council, advocates for a proactive approach to surmount internal discord and advance the party’s trajectory, denouncing past frictions as hindrances to the CPP’s growth.

As the CPP navigates these internal intricacies, the party’s resilience and commitment to democratic ideals stand resolute. Upholding the value of collective progress and unity, the CPP remains steadfast in its mission to foster a stronger, more democratic nation, urging stakeholders to rally behind the party’s leadership for a shared vision of national advancement.
