Hon. Alan Kyerematen has made a surprising announcement that is causing ripples in the political world.
After a long association with the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and notable roles in government, including Minister for Trade and Industry, Mr. Alan Kyerematen has decided to break ties with the party.
In a bold move, he declared his candidacy as an independent for the 2024 elections.
This decision by Kyerematen has startled the political scene, considering his deep-rooted connection with the NPP.
As a seasoned politician who has contributed significantly to the NPP and various governmental roles, his departure is causing quite a stir.
During a press conference held in Accra on Monday, 25th September, 2023, Mr. Kyerematen expressed that he feels undervalued within the party.
He voiced concerns about the potential division he could cause within the party, citing similar circumstances that led to his previous resignation in 2008.
Consequently, he officially resigned from the NPP and declared his candidacy for the Ghanaian presidency as an independent candidate in the 2024 General Elections.
Kyerematen emphasized his commitment to addressing pressing issues in the country, including economic development, job creation, and social welfare.
He believes that running independently will enable him to better serve the interests of the Ghanaian people.
His decision to run as an independent candidate presents a significant challenge to the established political order in Ghana and has the potential to reshape the nation’s political landscape.
This marks the second instance of Alan Kyerematen leaving the NPP, making it a significant event in Ghanaian politics.
