Alan Kyerematen, a former member of the ruling New Patriotic Party, has firmly declared his decision not to rejoin the party again.
The former Minister of Trade and Industry has recently declared his intention to break away from the party and participate as an independent candidate in the upcoming 2024 elections, following the party’s superdelegate conference.
At a press conference held in Accra on Monday, September 25, Mr. Kyerematen noted that “it is abundantly clear to me that my services and contributions to the Party are not appreciated and that my continuous stay in the Party will create further tension and division, which is an exact replay of circumstances that led to my decision to resign from the Party in 2008 but later rejoined the party.
During a conversation on Oyerepa Breakfast Time, the leader of the movement was asked if he would consider rejoining the party, as he had done in 2008. However, he clearly expressed his firm decision to not return to the party.
“I thank NPP members who are willing to have me back. I left the party for some reasons. I am a founding member, and I have served the party for a long time.
I have served in the ex-presidential Kufour and Akufo-Addo governments. I have explained what led to my resignation. If I say the party did not treat me well, it’s all the entire party members but some leaders. Henceforth,
I am going directly to the electorate with my message for them to vote for as president. So now I have gone for good.” Alan told Kwesi Parker-Wilson, host of the show.
