Bright Akwetey who’s failed aspirant of the CPP presidential has described the victory of Ivor Greenstreet in the party’s just ended presidential primaries as mind boggling.
According to him, Greenstreet would not have won the Saturday ballot if delegates considered competent.
Ivor, obtained a massive 1,288 votes of the 1,992 valid votes to beat his former chairperson, Samia Nkrumah, who came a distant second with 579 votes in the Saturday polls the Nkrumahist party. The others were Joseph Agyapong – 83 and Bright Akwetey 42 votes.
While talking to media, Mr. Akwetey has described that he also realized that Greenstreet is a hardworking, he influenced the delegates heavily with money to win the slot.
He describes that the CPP is worrying, because we appear to be learning from the corrupt practices of the NDC and NPP, which they are moving away from.
He fumed that, “everyone who was there will tell you that money exchanged hands and even though he is hard working and has visited almost every part of the country, it is mind boggling that he won. He paid the delegates and he knows that. As for me, I work hard for his money so I won’t go and share it like that, he won’t do that.”
Moreover, he added that in spite of his grievances, he will work to support the newly elected flagbearer as they approach the 2016 elections, he will try to cooperate with the new elected.
Meanwhile, pollster Ben Ephson believes Mr. Greenstreet can push the November polls into a runoff if he is able to sustain his ability to connect with voters.
