Mr. Emmanuel Osei Gyamfi, a member of Alan Kyerematen’s campaign communication team, has expressed sympathy for the youth within the New Patriotic Party (NPP), stating that they have an uncertain future in the party.
In an interview on Opemsuo Radio’s Nkwantannanso with Kofi Boakye on September 26, he drew a contrast between the NPP and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in how they treat their youth members.
Mr Gyamfi remarked, “If you are a youth and you are still with the NPP, then I pity you because there is no future for the youth in the NPP. In the NDC, they don’t care about your background. In the NPP, they will ask if your father is Osafo Marfo.”
When questioned about why Alan Kyerematen chose to leave NPP and run as an independent candidate, he clarified that Allan’s departure was not solely due to the challenges he faced within the party but rather because he believed the party was being led in the wrong direction.
He asserted that there is an agenda within the NPP that does not align with the development of Ghana, and Alan chose not to be a part of it.
“They are all moving with an agenda. Agenda that won’t develop Ghana, Alan cannot be part. They have always prayed for him to leave.”
Alan Kyerematen, for the second time in his political career, announced his resignation from the NPP. He stated his intention to run as an independent candidate in the 2024 General Elections due to his dissatisfaction with the recent developments within the Party and the results of the Super Delegates Conference.
Alan will launch the “Movement for Change in Ghana,” featuring the Monarch Butterfly as its symbol and the motto “Ghana Will Rise Again.”
