Former Trade and Industry Minister Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen has formally withdrawn from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) presidential primary on November 4, 2023.
Mr. Kyeremanten issued and signed a statement to that effect.
He has also stated that he will inform Ghanaians, particularly his followers, of his next political move as soon as possible.
He announced his decision in a press statement issued Tuesday evening [Sept 5].
He wrote, “The question I keep asking myself is, “How did we get here as a Party in the first place, and how far are we prepared to tread on this dangerous path to self-destruction?”
Regrettably, I am not convinced that the circumstances I have referred to earlier, will not persist or even be escalated in the next round of elections, for which balloting is scheduled for Wednesday, 6th of September 2023.
In light of the foregoing, I wish to confirm that I am honourably withdrawing from the process that will lead to the Presidential Primaries to be held on the 4th of November 2023. In the next upcoming weeks, I will provide an indication of the role that I will play in politics in Ghana, after consultations with my family and other well- wishers, various stakeholders and interest groups.
I wish all the other Aspirants well as they continue on their journey. I also wish to use this opportunity to express my profound gratitude once again to my family, the Alan 4 President (A4P) Campaign Team, and all my teeming supporters in Ghana and from around the world, who have supported me in diverse ways over the years. Please be assured that the battle is still the Lord’s, and that those who wait upon the Lord shall have their strength renewed.
God bless our homeland Ghana and make our nation great and strong!
HON. ALAN KYEREMATEN
