The Second Vice Chairperson of the Convention People’s Party, Susan Adu-Amankwah, has stated that the party settled on Ivor Greenstreet as flagbearer because he is not as divisive as Samia Yaba Nkrumah.

According to her aside not being a divisive figure, Greenstreet was also the best candidate amongst the flagbearer hopefuls.

“We chose this flagbearer because, as a party, we need to unify. Greenstreet has been very neutral, I know people will disagree with me but Samia has been divisive and we’ve had enough of that,” Mrs Adu-Amankwah said on Citi FM’s Big Issue Saturday.

She added “the fact that we didn’t vote for Samia doesn’t mean that we don’t like her as a person, but we have to present the best capable person.

“Greenstreet has clarity of thought, he knows the political terrain, he is a grassroots person and has been able to win two elections as General Secretary.”

Mr Greenstreet was elected flagbearer of the CPP, after he polled 1,288 votes, representing 64.2%, ahead of Samia’s total of 579, representing about 28.9%.
