Political analyst and university lecturer Mr Boakye Yiadom advises the New Party (NPP) to effectively manage the withdrawal of Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen from the November 4 presidential primary to avoid potential electoral misfortunes in 2024.
He said the party’s handling of the withdrawal could significantly impact their chances of winning the 2024 presidential election.
Speaking on Nyankonton Mu Nsem on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, he suggested that Alan Kyerematen’s decision to withdraw could have been influenced by several circumstances.
“Whether or not this withdrawal affects the party will depend on how they handle it.” If those in charge of the issue come on the radio or television and trash him, the NPP will undoubtedly face a big crisis.
The party should approach him so that he will support whoever wins the election and campaign for the party. But if they fail to do so and treat him with contempt, the party will suffer in the 2024 presidential race.”
He claimed that some party communicators communicate about Mr. Kyerematen with contempt, bitterness, and hatred.
”I sometimes wonder why they do this to him. What exactly has he done to them? Was he really given money to share with others but then pocketed it? Has he slept with the wife of another man? I don’t understand their hatred for him, because when you hear some of them speak about him, you will be amazed. Some people have nothing but hatred for him, which is unfortunate.”
When asked if the party had treated Alan Cash unfairly, the analyst replied in the affirmative.
“The mafia’s campaign against Alan Kyerematen did not begin today. They began with the mafia work in 2007 when he contested Akufo-Addo for office. The mafia’s efforts against him have been worrying since that time.
They don’t treat him with respect. Their public events and how they treat him reveal this. He’d be speaking, and they’d grab the mic. He’d be on stage speaking when they’d cut him off and introduce someone else. Consider how his agent was abused and attacked. When it comes to mafia plots against Alan, they do exist, and I believe we will find out why they despise him one day.”
