The New Patriotic Party NPP says it will respond to the resignation of the former Trade Minister and Flagbearer Hopeful, Alan John Kwadwo Kyerematen from the party on Tuesday, September 26.
This comes after Alan Kyeremtan announced on Monday, his resignation from the New Patriotic Party, to contest in the 2024 general elections as an independent candidate.
Kyeremateng emphasized his commitment to addressing the pressing issues facing the country, including economic development, job creation, and social welfare. He stated that his decision to run as an independent candidate was driven by his belief that this approach would enable him to better serve the interests of the Ghanaian people.
However, in response to Alan’s resignation, a statement signed by the General Secretary of the party, Justin Frimpong Kodua said, ” the leadership of the New Patriotic Party 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”.
It concluded “that the party 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”.
