Christian Kwabena Andrews, founder of the Ghana Union Movement (GUM), says the 2024 presidential election will be between his party and the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
His key reason for making the assertion is that the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has been ruled out of the race.
He stated that the party in power is on its way into opposition, and nothing can save it from it.
He said the government has messed up the economy, and Ghanaians are disappointed with them as a result.
“The elections in 2024 would be between the GUM and the NDC.” The NPP is currently fractured, there is disarray inside the party, and, worst of all, they have caused economic suffering for Ghanaians. They have no chance of winning. In 2024, my party will go off against the NDC.”
He made the remarks in an interview with Nyankonton Mu Nsem on Rainbow Radio 87.5 FM.
He was responding to the decision by Alan Kyerematen to resign from NPP and contest as an independent candidate in the 2024 presidential election.
He feels Alan Kyerematen’s political career is gone after quitting the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and competing as an independent candidate in the 2024 presidential election.
According to him, the previous trade and industry minister rushed to make this decision.
According to him, the politician should have exhibited discipline and thoroughly researched all of the issues before making this “hasty decision.”
As a result, he has counselled him to consider retiring from active politics, withdrawing from the 2024 general elections, and considering other pursuits.
“Alan Kyerematen’s political career is over.” He should have shown more restraint. He hurried into his decision to quit the NPP and run as an independent. His foundation as a person was the NPP, and he has resigned from the party, so he will have no impact. He lacks the numbers to have any impact. He made a hurried decision. He will never recover from this.
Another thing he mentioned that I found amusing was that he was going to be the third force. That is a fallacy. He should leave active politics and pursue other interests. He will not be considered in the general election in 2024. His fan base isn’t even 500 people.”
He added that his party made an impact in 2020 and as a serious party, it was not interested in any form of alliance.
He announced that the party will in October elect its presidential candidate and party executives.
The man of God stressed GUM is prepared for the 2024 presidential election and we will emerge as the winners.
