A 2020 Independent Presidential candidate Kofi Koranteng has lauded Alan John Kwadwo Kyerematen for taking a valiant decision to break away from the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).
He has described the move by the former Trade and Industry minister as huge and stout to strip himself off of all the benefits he enjoys as NPP stalwart and a founding member.
Alan Kyerematen on Monday, September 25, 2023, for the second time announced his withdrawal from the NPP and declared his intention to run as an independent candidate in the 2024 general elections.
His decision follows alleged brutalities and ill-treatments meted out to his agents and supporters at NPP’s recent super delegates’ conference.
Kofi Koranteng, reacting to this in an interview with Onua News praised Mr. Kyerematen, ascribing him as the next gem to think into the future and next millennium.
”Honestly I didn’t think he was going to be brave enough to make a decision like this to strip himself off of all the benefits he enjoys as an NPP stalwart.
“As a founding member of NPP to break away is a huge and bold decision and I hope he is equally the next gem to think into the future and I am hoping to have a conversation with him; without a doubt it’s the way to go, he said,” he hinted.
He expounded that Alan’s decision begins a process of disintegrating the NPP as a political party.
He underscored the need for key members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to take the same bold decision so that the independent candidates can sit down and forge a new Ghana.
Kofi Koranteng was quick to add that he is contesting the 2024 polls and urged all eligible voters who have Ghana at heart to come on board to enable him wrestle power and break the duo-poly of the NDC and NPP.
