The Convenor of Akyem for Alan, Fiifi Ofori Atta, has said that it is time for the Trade and Industry Minister, Alan Kyeremanteng to lead the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to break the eight in 2024.
In the convenor’s view, Alan Kyeremanteng has served the party since 1992 in various capacities and deserves the opportunity to be the president.
He cited instances where the Trade Minister made many sacrifices, both financially and otherwise just to see the unity and success of the party.
Speaking during a health walk on the theme: Akyem for Alan, Onua ne Akonta, Mr. Ofori mentioned that Alan Kyeremanteng stepped down for President Kufour to become a candidate for NPP in 1996 and did the same during the 2007 NPP primaries for then-candidate Akufo-Addo to lead the party.
”Alan is a founding member of the party and has served the party well for a long time including funding the party’s first office at Kokomlemle…”
According to Mr. Fiifi Ofori Atta, the wife of Alan Kyremanteng is a native of Akyem Tafo. He, therefore, pleaded with the Akyems to accept Alan Kyremanteng as presidential candidate for the NPP.
“Since His Excellency Nana Akufo-Addo is exiting, we feel we should bring our brother Alan Kwadwo Kyeremanteng,” he added.
The supporters of the Trade and Industry Minister held a health walk at President Nana Addo’s hometown, Kyebi, in honour of Mr Kyerematen who they said is the ‘well-deserved candidate’ to represent the party and the people.
They walked through the principal streets of Asikam, Kyebi Zongo, to Asiakwa in the West Akim District of the Eastern Region.
