Odike quits UFP to form new party

Akwasi Addai Odike, businessman and former 2012 flag-bearer for the United Front Party (UFP), has officially parted ways with the party.
Speaking on Kessben Television’s morning show, Ade3akye Abia, Mr Odike explained that due to recent misunderstandings and confusion in the UFP, he had decided to go solo so as to form his own party. He described his actions as “exercising his rights”.
Mr Odike further explained that his new United People’s Party (UPP) which has a clock as its symbol will get the support of Ghanaians, adding that when given the presidential mandate he will transform the country’s economy.
The formation of the UPP comes after months of open fighting between Odike and Nana Agyenim Boateng aka Gyataba over who should control the UFP.
The new party, with social democratic underpinnings, is expected to be launched in April (next month) to wrest political power in the 2016 election.
