Founder and leader of Movement for Change, Alan Kyerematen, has emphasized the significant role played by the Ashanti Region in supporting the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to win the presidential election. He expressed his belief that the region deserves more attention and development.
He particularly highlighted the urgent need for road network improvements in the area.
“When you look at how Asanteman has served NPP, there are certain areas that if nothing is done at all, we should have worked on the roads. At least the roads should have been one of the best,” Alan Kyerematen stated in an interview on Opemsuo Radio’s Nkwantannanso with Kofi Boakye on October 3.
He expressed disappointment in the current state of the road network in the Ashanti Region and pledged to prioritize its improvement if elected as president.
“NDC has done some, NPP has done some but still state of the road is very bad. It is number one priority for me that if voted into power, the road network in Ashanti Region will be worked on.”
He acknowledged that both the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and NPP had initiated some projects in the past, such as the Afari Military Hospital and Sewuah Hospital, which remain incomplete.
Alan committed to completing these projects when in office.
Alan Kyerematen recently announced his departure from the NPP after being a member for 31 years. He intends to run as an independent candidate in the upcoming 2024 Presidential election.
