Estimated read time 2 min read

The New Patriotic Party, NPP, will today afternoon officially respond to the decision of Alan Kyeremanten to forfeit his membership of the party which he is a founding member of. The party in a statement on Monday, September 25, said it had taken notice of the former Trade and Industry Minister’s decision and would appropriately respond.

In the statement signed by Justice Kodua Frimpong, the General Secretary of the NPP, it said “The leadership of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has taken notice of the unfortunate decision of Mr. Alan John Kwadwo Kyerematen, a long-standing member of the Party to forfeit his membership, and contest as an independent presidential candidate in the 2024 general elections.

Also, the statement urged all members of the NPP to not be distracted by Alan’s announcement.

“The Party leadership is by this medium, urging the rank and file of our great Party to remain calm and await an official address by the Party to Mr. Kyerematen’s resignation at 14:00 p.m. on Tuesday September 26, 2023, at the Party headquarters. May God bless our homeland Ghana and make the New Patriotic Party great and strong.

Alan Kyeremanten on Monday announced his resignation from the party while also revealing he will contest the 2024 presidential elections as an independent candidate. He accused the party of being unfair to him and treating him and his supporters as outcasts. According to the former government appointee, he has served the party and his country so well but now thinks the party does not need his services again, thus the decision to leave.

Meanwhile, another founding member of the NPP and critical voice of the party, Dr Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe has said the former Ambassador to the United States overstayed in the Akufo-Addo’s government. According to him, the decision to spend nearly seven years in a bad government has placed him in a bad light which won’t attract the youth to whom he is appealing for support.
