Former
Convention People’s Party (CPP) Parliamentarian for Jomoro in the
Western Region, Samia Nkrumah, has announced a comeback in the 2020
elections.

The
former National Chairperson and leader of the CPP said it was important
for a change to take place in Parliament to have legislators “who vote
according to their conscience and in the interest of their
constituencies and Ghanaians and Africans at large”.

Ms Nkrumah, who failed in her ambition to be flagbearer of the CPP in the 2016 elections stressed in a Facebook Post on Sunday, 4 August 2019 that: “It’s time that a voice that doesn’t speak for either the Majority or the Minority, a voice that doesn’t represent party A or party B stands out to be counted.”

However,
she did not indicate whether she will contest as an independent
candidate or on the ticket of the CPP, which was founded by her father
and Ghana’s First President Dr Kwame Nkrumah.

Ms Samia was Jomoro MP from 2009 to 2012.

She lost in the 2020 polls the NDC contestant, Wing Commander Francis Anaman, a retired officer of the Ghana Airforce.
