The Convention Peoples Party (CPP) said it will hit the street to protest in order to repossess many of its assets confiscated by the State after the party’s overthrow from power in 1966.

The move, according to Deputy National Youth Organiser Ernesto Yeboah, forms part of the CPP’s restructuring exercise intended to reposition the party to win political power in 2016.

The protest also marks the 49th anniversary of the overthrow of Dr. Nkrumah.

“Only the CPP has its founder as a wanted criminal in the 1992 constitution; only the CPP is denigrated and attacked in government text books throughout the country,” Yeboah said.

He added: “Only the CPP has all its properties, as we speak, confiscated to the state: we want democracy and not hypocrisy”.

A pro-Nkrumaist group, the Socialist Forum will later today hold a forum christened 'Ghana's Day of Shame' to mark the day.
