Experienced Ghanaian politician, Alan Kyeremateng, has formally resigned from the New Patriotic Party today, September 25, 2023. Alan, a founding member, initially joined the NPP with unwavering faith in its foundational values.
However, he now laments that the party bears scant resemblance to the one he joined as a founding member, owing to its capture by unscrupulous individuals.
The former NPP luminary, presently addressing a press conference at the Movenpick Hotel, conveyed the following message:
“I want to take this opportunity to formally declare my honorable resignation, effective immediately, from the New Patriotic Party. I am stepping down to pursue the esteemed position of President of the Republic of Ghana in the forthcoming 2024 General Elections, as an Independent Presidential Candidate.”
Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen, who had been one of the aspiring flagbearers within the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), opted to withdraw from the NPP’s flagbearership contest approximately two weeks ago.
He officially announced his decision through a statement dated September 5, 2023.
“In light of the circumstances, I want to confirm my honorable withdrawal from the process leading up to the Presidential Primaries scheduled for November 4, 2023. In the coming weeks, I will disclose my future role in Ghanaian politics after consulting with my family, supporters, various stakeholders, and interest groups,” he further stated.
Mr. Kyerematen, who secured the third position in the party’s special delegates conference on August 26, cited the intimidation of agents as the reason for his exit from the race.
