The Minister for Trade and Industry Alan Kyeremanten has urged members of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) to rally behind the newly-elected national executives.

According to the minister, in spite of one’s status in the party, a unifying front needed for “victory and development” must be considered first.

Mr. Kyeremanten in a statement issued on Sunday, July 31, 2022, to mark the party’s 30th-anniversary celebrations, called for unity to commemorate the occasion to lead the NPP into victory upon victories to serve Ghana.

The celebration was on the theme; “Our Shared Tradition, Holding and Working Together a Stable and Prosperous Nation.”

“Let us all rally behind our competent party executives and protect our collective unity like the way the elephant, our winning symbol care for and nurtures its young ones.

“No matter how big a position we hold, no matter how big we feel in ourselves, UNITY for VICTORY and DEVELOPMENT should forever remain our guide and must not be compromised. We should always be guided by the edict that ‘no one is more important than the NPP’, for in unity lies strength.

“I urge us to use the celebration to cement the unity of the party to lead us into victory upon victories to serve Ghana our motherland,” the minister said.

He also used the medium to acknowledge the courageous men and women whose immense contribution has brought by far the party to where it is now despite the challenges they faced along the line.

“It will be a great disservice to observe and celebrate this day without acknowledging the courageous men and women who stood their ground, despite the challenges they faced, and worked tirelessly to bring the NPP to where it is today.

“Some lost their lives in the service of the party, and others lost their businesses or had to flee into exile. I however note with pride that, whatever members of the party suffered, was all for the good of this great nation and party.”

Below is the full statement

PRESS STATEMENT ISSUED BY HON. ALAN JOHN KWADWO KYEREMATEN ON THE 30TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE NEW PATRIOTIC PARTY.

I bring greetings to the gallant men, women, youth, students and all Patriots who have worked assiduously over the years to serve our country Ghana and the world through the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to bring sustainable development to our country Ghana.

The journey of 30 years has been possible because of the hard work of every member of the party. On this occasion, we applaud the entire membership of the party for what we have achieved together.

It will be a great disservice to observe and celebrate this day without acknowledging the courageous men and women who stood their ground, despite the challenges they faced, and worked tirelessly to bring the NPP to where it is today. Some lost their lives in the service of the party, and others lost their businesses or had to flee into exile. I however note with pride that, whatever members of the party suffered, was all for the good of this great nation and party.

To mark the 30 years, let us all join the leadership of the party to celebrate our heroes/heroines loudly and silently, pray for the good Lord to grant rest to those who lost their lives serving the party, comfort their families, restore hope to the hopeless and bring alive the spirit of unity of purpose that has brought us this far.

I also wish to use this opportunity to appreciate the work of those who continue to sacrifice their resources and energy to help the forward march of our party.

I have been privileged to be having served in various capacities starting as a member of the National Executive Committee for over a decade, thereafter being a member of the Manifesto Committee over the years, founded and successfully chaired the NPP Young Executive Forum (YEF), a powerful arm of the party in our run-up to the success of our Party. Some notable members of the YEF were Peter Mac Manu who became the Chairman of the party, Hon Cecilia Dapaah and many great sons and daughters of our great party. I also recall some very engaging fundraising activities I undertook under the successive Chairmanship of Mr B.J. Da Rocha, the Right Hon. Peter Ala Adjetey, H.E. Odoi Sykes and Mr Harouna Esseku and all the other Party Chairmen. Throughout my work with these noble men, one lesson I have held dear is that every good deed is rewarded.

In line with the theme of our anniversary; “Our Shared Tradition, Holding and Working Together a Stable and Prosperous Nation”, I urge us to use the celebration to cement the unity of the party to lead us into victory upon victories to serve Ghana our motherland.

Let us all rally behind our competent party executives and protect our collective unity like the way the elephant, our winning symbol care for and nurtures its young ones. No matter how big a position we hold, no matter how big we feel in ourselves, UNITY for VICTORY and DEVELOPMENT should forever remain our guide and must not be compromised. We should always be guided by the edict that ‘no one is more important than the NPP’, for in unity lies strength.

God bless our homeland Ghana, our great NPP, and make us prosperous and strong.

Ayekoo!

Alan K Kyerematen
