The Convention People's Party (CPP) is a political party in Ghana. It was started by Kwame Nkrumah in 1949.[1] It was formed as a split from the United Gold Coast Convention, which, before the forming of the CPP, Nkrumah became general secretary of in 1947.[2] Nkrumah split from the UGCC because Nkrumah did not agree with the UGCC's beliefs and ways.[3]. The party continues to exist today.
