Brother to Samia Nkrumah, Dr. Sekou Nkrumah, has advised his sister to humble herself and work with the leadership of the Convention People’s Party (CPP) in order to improve the party’s fortunes in the 2016 elections.

“I think she is not handling this situation well…I mean why talk about money, and so on, people buying votes and so on. I think this should be internal…they can sort that out between themselves. My advice is that she should humble herself and work with the present leadership now,” Sekou said.

After her defeat at the party’s congress, Samia alleged that Mr. Ivor Greenstreet bought delegates’ votes with GHS200, GhS300, GHS500, GHS1000, and GHS3000 during the CPP’s congress.

Speaking from Florida in the United States of America after Samia’s defeat in the CPP’s presidential election, Sekou pointed out that Samia does not really understand the dynamics of Ghanaian politics since she rushed into the political landscape in Ghana.

He added that Samia’s political agenda is “more self-seeking” and “trying to fit into her own personal ambition.”

Dr. Nkrumah also said Samia’s lack of achievement as chairman of the party could partly be blamed for her defeat.

Meanwhile, Dr. Nkrumah advised Mr. Greenstreet to work towards building the party from the grassroots and focus on winning parliamentary seats as in his view, it is unrealistic for the CPP to be victorious in the 2016 polls.
