NPP Declares Alan Kyeremanten’s Resignation Unfortunate, Plans Official Response
The New Patriotic Party (NPP) in power has expressed deep disappointment in the decision of Alan Kwadwo Kyeremanten, the former Minister of Trade and Industry, to sever ties with the party.
The NPP intends to issue an official response to Mr. Kyeremanten’s resignation, scheduled for Tuesday, September 26, 2023.
In a move that sent shockwaves through Ghana’s political arena, Alan Kyerematen announced his departure from the NPP during a press conference on Monday, September 25, 2023. He cited what he termed “unjust treatment meted out to him and his loyal supporters by the party’s leadership” as the impetus for his decision.
During the press conference held in Accra, Mr. Kyerematen unequivocally declared his candidacy for the forthcoming 2024 presidential election, asserting that he would run as an independent candidate. In his own words, he stated, “This action is a response to the inequities I’ve encountered within the party and the mistreatment of my supporters.”
The NPP’s reaction to this unexpected development remains highly anticipated, as political observers and the general public await further insights into the party’s perspective on Kyeremanten’s resignation and its potential repercussions on the nation’s political landscape.
