Some political watchers have commented on Alan Kwadwo Kyeremanten’s decision to withdraw from the NPP presidential race.
Alan withdrew from the flagbearship contest on Tuesday, 6th September, 2023 and the rumour is that he may contest as an independent presidential candidate in the 2024 general elections.
Two renowned political analysts have shared their thoughts on the decision of the former Trade and Industry Minister to step down from the NPP presidential primaries.
Speaking on Joy FM News Night, Dr Kobby Mensah blamed the withdrawal of Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen from the flagbearership race on the failure of the party to appropriately deal with issues of electoral irregularities that had emerged in the super delegates’ conference.
He said ‘I think that the party was rather interested in Kennedy Agyapong’s outburst. If you look at the committee that was set up and the terms of references, even when most political watchers had said that they have to deal with some of the issues that have been leveled against the process, they were not quite ready to deal with that. So I don’t think they were prepared to deal with the issue’.
Dr. Kwame Asah-Asante also observed that Alan’s decision reinforces his image as an honourable man.
He said Alan Kyerenanten is ‘a man of honour and he wants to save his image. He believes that the whole process has been compromised one way or the other and so he did not want to be associated with such a process. Remember, we saw a similar thing done by Boakye Agyarko too so it speaks volumes as to what is happening within the NPP and it’s a big indictment on the party’. Watch video below.
