In the NPP stronghold of Wenchi, in the Bono Region, there’s a buzz about Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen’s resignation. Richard Kwadwo Adu, a respected NPP member, says the constituency’s loyalty to the party remains firm.
The former Trade and Industry Minister’s decision to leave didn’t surprise them. Adu revealed that many had anticipated Kyerematen’s move before the super delegates conference.
Kyerematen publicly announced his resignation and his plan to run independently in the 2024 presidential elections on Monday, September 25. He indicated that the super delegates conference was riddled with intimidation and monetisation, which he said were unprecedented in the NPP’s internal election history.
Adu, a former Constituency Youth Organiser, told the Ghana News Agency in Wenchi that the party was ready to “break the eight” in the 2024 elections, undeterred by anyone. He acknowledged Kyerematen’s contributions to the NPP but expressed disappointment in his resignation, seeing it as a lack of dedication.
Adu assured that Kyerematen’s resignation would not affect their chances in the next general election, as no true NPP member would follow him. The general sentiment in Wenchi is one of disappointment in Kyerematen for showing disloyalty to the NPP.
