Ghana’ s renowned media personality, Nana Aba Anamoah, has weighed in on the surprising decision by Alan Kyerematen to quit the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and run as an independent candidate in the upcoming 2024 presidential election.
Alan Kyerematen, a former Minister of Trade and Industry, made his intentions clear during a press conference on Monday, September 25, where he declared his candidacy for the 2024 presidential race as an independent candidate. He explained that he is driven by a passion to bring a new sense of hope to Ghana, particularly for the youth who yearn for change and seek to break free from the longstanding dominance of the NPP and NDC in Ghanaian politics.
This unexpected move by Alan Kyerematen has grabbed headlines across Ghana, drawing the attention of both political enthusiasts and celebrities alike.
Nana Aba Anamoah, a prominent figure in Ghana’ s media landscape, took to Twitter to offer her perspective on the situation. According to the media personality Nana Aba Anamoah, Alan Kyerematen believes that a significant portion of Ghanaians are in favor of his presidential bid, but the NPP opposes it.
It’ s worth noting that Alan Kyerematen’ s decision to exit the NPP has also sparked reactions from other key figures within the party. Dr. Nyaho Nyaho- Tamakloe, a founding member of the NPP, expressed his disapproval, deeming Alan’ s timing as inappropriate. This resignation comes at a crucial moment for the NPP as they gear up to compete against other opposition parties in the 2024 elections.
