I, Ernesto Yeboah, National Youth Organiser and Commnder-in-Chief of the Youth League of the Convention People’s Party (CPP)

I, Ernesto Yeboah, National Youth Organiser and Commnder-in-Chief of the Youth League of the Convention People’s Party (CPP) have resolved to remain at post, despite my purported suspension by the Party’s Central Committee in the evening of June 30th 2016. I shall ignore the so-called suspension and report to the party office in my capacity as Youth League leader to perform my official duties on Monday July 4, 2016; at exactly 10:00am GMT. My decision above is based on a number of reasons. I’d want to make the point sufficiently clear that I did not immediately dismiss the reports of my suspension when I heard it on radio. I decided to give the so-called decision the benefit of the doubt, engage with the media (where I heard it from) in order to get the rationale behind it. Meanwhile, I have given the Central Committee (CC) ample time to do the right, and administratively correct, thing by waiting for them to communicate their collective position properly. But it is interesting to note that until now, I have not received in writing, an official communication from the party’s leadership on the said decision, not even a phone call. Their excuse cannot be the long holiday that followed their decision, for our service to the party is via volunteering; hence holidays actually presented them ample time to do the right thing. But they have ignored the administrative processes in the party. I therefore will not be party to such disorder and impropriety creeping into the CPP. One interesting development that our dear party members and Ghanaians must shift their attention to is this; since the allegation of the Ford gift broke, the CPP hasn’t come out with what is supposed to be the official position. Is that position supposed to be different from that of the Youth League? Is that position supposed to agree with what the Flag bearer said? Curiously, the Central Committee could not tell Ghanaians this after several hours of their meeting. However, it seemed what was more important in that meeting was to suspend the General Secretary and I for expressing a position that is consistent with the Party’s ideology and beliefs. So the question remains, what is the CPP’s official position on the said Ford Gift to President John Dramani Mahama? All these developments point to a certain lack of clarity which does not bode well for the CPP. As a youth dedicated to my party and Ghana, I shall not allow myself to be dragged into indecision, when the party’s ideology and administrative systems are clear. It therefore becomes more expedient to join my fellow comrades to bring clarity to this Ford Scandal, while mobilizing votes for our party come November. I shall therefore continue to work for our party as Leader of the Youth League. The work continues. Revolutionary Reagrds, Ernesto Yeboah Commander-in-Chief CPP Youth League (Fighters)
