He was been disqualified from contesting the flagbearer slot.
The General Secretary of the CPP, Nii Armah Akomfrah said, “He presented a fraudulent cheque and that was the basis [on which] the party disqualified him.”
According to him, the party required a banker’s draft or cash but Dr Onsy Nkrumah presented a cheque.
“We worked around it, we tried to find a way, and in the end we could not admit him because there was no sufficient fund to be able to admit him,” Mr Akomfrah explained.
However, Samia Nkrumah; former General Secretary, Ivor Greenstreet; legal practitioner Bight Akwetey; and businessman Joseph Agyapong, are contesting to lead the party into the November polls.
Mr Akomfrah said, the party will start vetting the four presidential aspirants from Tuesday January 12, 2016and the process could continue till the end of the week.
He added that, “The vetting report will be submitted to the Central Committee. Barring any incident against the four who have filed, they will be vying for the candidacy of the party on January 30.”
