The Convention People’s Party (CPP) have sent a very heart warm message to Ghanaian mothers, urging them to continue to work and help make a change in lives of their children so they become good citizens of Ghana.
Acknowledging the difficulties mothers have endured and continue to endure in the face of hardships in the Ghanaian economy, the Nkrumaist party believes that it is only a mother’s role that could make significant changes in the life of her child, having proven to stand against all odds.
In a statement signed and released by the General Secretary of the CPP, Nana Yaa Akyempim Jantuah, to commemorate Mother’s Day which is celebrated worldwide on May 9, the socialist opposition party said “In our current state of hopelessness as a nation, a Mother’s role is becoming more and more significant when some of our youth in our country are on the perverted path owing to distractions which are the products of modern age. We pay our respect to all Mothers and urge you to continue to transform, educate and empower our children to become responsible citizens”.
It added “Mothers are one of the pillars of our society. Mothers are epitome of love, affection, sacrifice and generosity. We know for a fact that if there is no mother, there will be no family, no society, and no country and no existence of human beings. The CPP is proud of Ghanaian mothers who provide solace to the hardship and suffering of our children as a result of the reckless implementation of neoliberal economic policies by successive governments after the overthrow of Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah’s CPP government”.

THE CONVENTION PEOPLE’S PARTY (CPP) MOTHERS’ DAY MESSAGE TO
ALL GHANAIAN MOTHERS ON 9TH MAY, 2021
On the auspicious occasion of celebrating Mothers’ Day, the CPP salute all Mothers in Ghana for their unstinting efforts and positive contributions towards the socio–economic development of our dear country.
The C.P.P recognizes the contributions of our Ghanaian Mothers as partners in our quest to rid ourselves from underdevelopment and abject poverty. We recount with pride the sacrifice made by our gallant Mother’s to help our leader and founder of modern Ghana Osagyefo DR Kwame Nkrumah and his gallant freedom fighters during our struggle for independence.
The CPP recognizes the fact that Mothers are one of the pillars of our society. Mothers are epitome of LOVE, AFFECTION, SACRIFICE and GENEROSITY. We know for a fact that if there is no Mother, there will be no family, No Society, and No Country and No Existence of human beings. The CPP is proud of Ghanaian Mothers who provide solace to the hardship and suffering of our Children as a result of the reckless implementation of neoliberal economic policies by successive governments after the overthrow of Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah’s CPP government.
In our current state of hopelessness as a nation, a Mother’s role is becoming more and more significant when some of the youth in our country are on the perverted path owing to distractions which are the products of modern age. We pay our respect to all MOTHERS and urge you to continue to transform, educate and to empower our children to become responsible citizens.
The CPP recognizes the Ghanaian Mothers’ contributions towards the socio-economic development of our country and as a People’s Party we do not take the role of Mothers for granted and we appreciate the “Thankless” jobs with no payment of wages/salaries for your non-stop work for 365 days in a year.
Our dear Ghanaian Mothers, the CPP is proud of you; you are the personification of DEVOTION and a POWERFUL WARRIOR. Yours has been the battle against all odds to ensure happiness to our Children and in most homes, you have borne the brunt of economic hardships due to unbridled IMF/World Bank unfriendly economic policies and become the most reliant “BREADWINNERS” for the provision of food, clothing and accommodation/shelter.
As our Mothers, we take cognizance of your role as a teacher, friend, guide, philosopher and even a psychologist. Today, we salute you all Ghanaian Mothers for everything you do, done and still do for us. The CPP as a socialist Nkrumaist party believes in the emancipation and empowerment of all Ghanaians. As a people we have to accept the fact that any great person’s success can be traced back to his or her Mother’s inspiration.
On this special day, we have the opportunity to share our gratitude and appreciation for our Mothers. You serve as a shield for our Children and family, no matter how Mothers endure or how many people judge you. The CPP salutes all Mothers and expresses its profound gratitude for your unflinching support to our Children and Country as a whole.
AYEKOO!!!!! To ALL Mothers! Hip, Hip, Hip Hooray!!
