Accra, June 30, GNA
– The Convention People’s Party (CPP) commends Ghana for standing firmly as a
Republican State over the past 57 years.

“Ghana’s victory in
attaining full republican status went along with claiming the full sovereignty
over all aspects of our national and international life under the leadership of
the father of the nation, Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah,” the CPP stated in a
statement.

The statement signed
by Professor Edmund N Delle said Ghana on July 1, 1960 totally weaned itself
from British colonial rule, as the Queen of England’s Governor General left the
shores of the country to signify that the Black Star of Africa had taken charge
of its own affairs.

“The CPP
congratulate Ghana for protecting its sovereignty over the past 57 years and
still counting.

“We must continue to
work together to protect the State and fight against injustice, corruption, and
political victimisation. Ghana must work again,” the statement stated.

The CPP also
recounted that after becoming the first sub-Saharan African country to gain
independence on March 6, 1957, Ghana’s political freedom inspired the
liberation of many other African countries from colonial governance.

“Indeed Osagyefo Dr
Kwame Nkrumah, our revered founder of Modern Ghana led it in the vanguard of
the African revolution where in 1960 alone about 17 African countries were
liberated from the yoke of colonial rule and the clutches of imperial and
metropolitan political control,” the statement said.

The CPP therefore
extends its felicitation to the Government and People of Ghana, as the nation
marks its 57th Republican Anniversary

The CPP wishes to
extend sincere felicitation and congratulatory message to all members of the
party and citizens of our dear country on the 57th anniversary of the
attainment of republican status.
