A member of the Convention People’s Party (CPP) Council of Elders, F.A Jantuah says he is disappointed at the decision by the former Director General of the Ghana Health Service, Professor Agyemang Badu Akosa not to contest the flagbearership of the party.

According to him, Prof. Akosa would have been the best of all the contestants seeking to lead the party in the upcoming December elections.

“I am very much disappointed because if Prof. Akosa had taken the flagbearership of the party, he would have been the icon of the party” Mr Jantuah said.

He added that “Prof. Akosa would have been the tallest amongst all the flagbearers of the other parties. It is very unfortunate that circumstances do not allow Professor Akosa to stand for CPP”.

The former Minister in Dr. Kwame Nkrumah’s administration has however endorsed the candidature of Dr. Abu Sakara over Mr. Bright Akwetey in the party’s two-man race for the flagbearership race.

F.A Jantuah in an interview with XYZ News said Dr Sakara is a better candidate to lead the CPP to victory in the December elections.

“I don’t know Sakara very much but I prefer him to Bright Akwetey because Sakara is a doctorate and has experience on those political lines. Bright Akwetey also has the same experience but does not have the qualities to lead the CPP.

“I have read the speeches of Akwetey but the speeches of Sakara are superior to the speeches of Akwetey”.

The CPP goes to congress on Saturday to elect a flagbearer for the December polls
