A group of New Patriotic Party (NPP) members in the Garu and Tempane Constituencies of the Upper East Region have thrown their weight behind Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen and the Movement for Change party.
The youth who are executives and past executives of the NPP say they are supporting Alan because of what they think he can deliver for the country.
The Garu and Tempane constituencies are known to be Pro-Alan constituencies dating back to 2007 when the former Trade Minister won in that area in the then NPP presidential primaries.
The group has therefore registered their disappointment in the ruling NPP government and indicated that they want a change in hands in the governance of the country.
They have vowed to amass votes for Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen on 7th December 2024.
Alan contesting 2024 presidential elections as an independent candidate
Alan John Kwadwo Kyerematen resigned from the NPP on Monday, September 25, 2023.
“Under the circumstances and given the context provided, I wish to use this platform to announce that I am honourably resigning with immediate effect 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,” Mr. Kyerematen said.
He promised to focus on economic development, job creation, and social welfare when given the chance.
According to him, 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.
His candidacy as an independent presents a unique challenge to the established political order in Ghana, with the potential to reshape the political landscape.
Mr. Kyerematen’s decision to leave the NPP and run as an independent candidate in the 2024 elections signals a watershed point in Ghanaian politics.
