Meanwhile, Flagbearer, Mr. Greenstreet has entreated Ghanaians to be circumspect with their votes. He believes a vote for the CPP is a vote for the Ghanaian populace whereas a vote for the two big parties, New Patriotic Party and National Democratic Congress a wasted one.
“People of Ghana, a vote for the CPP is a vote for yourself. For the past 28 years, our country has been governed by the NPP and the NDC who have ruled more to serve the interest of they themselves and not the interest of the people of Ghana,” he stated.
