Madam Samia Nkrumah, the outgoing MP for Jomoro in the Western Region, has stated categorically that she would reject any invitation to become a Minister of State in President John Mahama’s government.
Madam Samia said:
“I don’t see how a party that worked hard to defeat me and succeeded to do so and now that I am out of Parliament will turn round and offer me any kind of appointment; we are talking about a party that worked very hard to defeat me, to eliminate me from Parliament and from the political scene, is that logical?”
NDC worked hard to defeat me and remove me out of parliament,why then should i accept any ministerial appointment?”
Madam Samia who is the Chairman of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), was speaking on Citi FM in response to reports in the Ghanaian media to the effect that she was being considered for a ministerial post by the John Mahama administration.
She also refuted reports that the CPP and the NDC were in the process of merging.
According to Madam Samia, there is no way the CPP can work with the NDC.
She said even though the 2012 election results have hit a setback, it would not diminish the CPP’s spirit to win the 2016 elections.
The CPP Chairperson said:
“The election result has been a major setback but it has not in the least broken our spirit, our mission is to realize Kwame Nkrumah’s vision and until that happens we are relevant as a political party and we remain as determined as ever, we know that we shall overcome, we know that we have a lot of support, we just have to find the ways and means to translate that into votes.”
