The New Patriotic Party (NPP) deems Alan Kyerematen’s decision to forfeit his membership as “premeditated and irrevocable”.
At a press conference on September 26, 2023, the General Secretary of the NPP, Justin Kodua Frimpong disclosed they learnt of Alan’s resignation in the same fashion as all Ghanaians.
The Party expected to receive a resignation letter from him, however, he didn’t as he chose to deliver his message through the media to the leadership of the party.
“The party wants to believe that by his decision to hold a press conference, to resign without first informing the leadership of the Party suggest he made a premeditated and irrevocable decision to resign from the party,” he said.
While announcing the forfeiture of his membership in the NPP at a press conference on September 25, Alan chronicled incidents of attacks and hostility his supporters have endured both in the past and present.
He alleged that his supporters are treated with “disdain” and as “outcasts” as a result of their association with him and noted that his continued stay in the party would only create further tension and division.
“Indeed the divisive and hostile attacks on my person and my supporters remained for several years thereafter, and have continued to date. It is common knowledge that any Party member who is associated directly or indirectly with Alan is treated with disdain and considered an outcast.”
After withdrawing from the flagbearership race of the NPP last month, Alan plans to pursue his presidential ambition as an Independent Candidate.
As such, he has begun a new movement to champion his policies.
