The National Chairman of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), Prof. Edmund Delle has resigned from the position.
He resigned from the chairmanship of the CPP following the ancestral call for him to lead his people as the Paramount Chief of the Nandom Traditional Area.
Following his resignation, the First National Chairman of the party, Hajia Hamdatu Ibrahim has been elevated to act as the CPP national Chairperson.
These were contained in a press release signed by the acting General Secretary of the party, Mr James Kwabena Bomfeh Jnr.
The statement said her appointment was made by the Central Committee of the party upon unanimous acceptance of the resignation of Prof. Delle as the chairman and leader of the party.
Hajia Ibrahim, until her investiture as chairperson and leader of the CPP, was the elected First Vice Chairperson of the party; and thus, automatically became the candidate to step into the vacant position created by the resignation of Prof. Delle.
Stating the reason for Prof. Delle’s resignation, the statement indicated that the leadership of the CPP found it appropriate to appoint an acting chairperson in his stead, who would coordinate the activities of the party.
The party, therefore, congratulated Prof. Delle on his enskinment as Naa Prof. Edmund N. Delle Chiir VIII and wished him the best in his new leadership role, adding that he would excel as the leader of his people and impact positively on Ghana as a whole.
