The New Patriotic Party leadership in the Ashanti Region has directed all regional chairpersons in the 47 constituencies to remove all posters, banners and other paraphernalia of Alan Kyerematen from their party offices.
This follows of Alan Kyerematen's resignation from the party on Monday, September 25, 2023.
In a memorandum dated September 25, 2023, and signed by Mr Bernard Antwi Boasiako, the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the NPP, addressed to all constituency chairpersons in the Ashanti Region, the party emphasized that Mr. Kyerematen’s promotional materials no longer hold relevance within the party offices due to his resignation.
“In view of Hon. Alan Kyerematen’s resignation from the party, all his posters, banners, flyers and paraphernalia at our party offices in all the constituencies must be removed with immediate effect. Once he has forfeited his membership, it is just right and fair that these items are removed from our offices” the memo signed by Mr Bernard Antwi Boasiako read.
Kyerematen on Monday declared that he will contest the upcoming 2024 presidential election as an independent candidate.
To him, Ghana needs a new leader and not a new political party, hence his decision to contest as an independent candidate under the slogan, Movement For Change with Monarch butterfly as his logo.
“I wish to use this platform to announce that I am honourably resigning with immediate effect from the New Patriotic Party to contest for the high office of the President of the Republic of Ghana in the 2024 General Elections, as an independent presidential candidate,” he told some supporters at the Movenpick Ambassador Hotel in Accra.
