Alan Kyeremanten officially resigned as member of the ruling New Patroitic Party (NPP) today, Monday, September 25, 2023.
Adressing the nation in a press conference held in Accra this afternoon, Alan announced his decision to quit the NPP and to further contest as an independent presidential candidate in the 2024 general elections.
The former Trade and Industry minister, who is affectionately called ‘Alan Cash’ said that although he wanted to become president of Ghana on the ticket of the NPP, he aborted his ambition as the party has now been hijacked by some ‘unscrupulous party apparatchiks’.
Alan revealed that ‘The NPP as it exists now has very little resemblance to the Party that I joined in 1992 and helped to nurture. The Party has been hijacked by a selected group of Party leaders and elders, government appointees, ‘behind the curtain power brokers’ and some unscrupulous Party apparatchiks.
‘… I wish to use this platform to announce that I am honourably resigning from the New Patriotic Party to contest for the high office of the President of the Republic of Ghana in the 2024 general elections as an independent presidential candidate’.
Alan added Ghana is facing leaderahip crisis and he will run a movement led by the youth to fix that big challenge.
‘To actualise this goal, I will establish and lead a new MOVEMENT FOR CHANGE in Ghana. The brand logo for the MOVEMENT is the Monarch Butterfly, which politically symbolizes change and transformation, hope, and positivity. It also communicates strength, endurance, spirituality, and trust, which are key traits that I cherish as a Political Leader. In Akan, it is known as Afrafranto. The brand motto of the MOVEMENT is ‘Ghana Will Rise Again’ which symbolizes hope for the future of Ghana. SOURCE: Kasatintin.com
