According to a report by 3news.com, Alan Kyerematen, a former hopeful for the NPP presidential candidacy, is expected to announce his resignation from the party at a press conference on Monday, September 25, 2023.
According to a report filed by 3news.com reveal that Kyerematen intends to run as an independent candidate in the upcoming 2024 general elections.
The sources express disappointment and humiliation at Kyerematen’s poor performance during the Special Delegates Conference, considering his significant contributions and sacrifices for the party.
“I can confirm to you that Chief Alan is all set to announce his resignation from the NPP and go independent. Unless there is a last-minute change of mind, he will resign from the party and go independent.”
“What happened in the Special Delegates Conference last month was really not good. The way the party voted was disappointing. It was really humiliating that considering all he has done and his stature in the party, he was third behind Kennedy Agyapong. Since he is not valued, he will resign and go independent and pay back the party.” The source further stated.
However, it is reported that a significant number of Kyerematen’s allies across the country do not support his decision to go independent and have chosen not to be a part of it, as revealed by 3news.
