Alex Djornobuah Tetteh, the Member of Parliament for Akontombra constituency in the Western North Region has offered counsel to supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) regarding the departure of the former Minister of Trade and Industry, John Alan Kwadwo Kyeremateng.
Alex Djornobuah Tetteh urged NPP supporters not to criticize Alan harshly for his decision to leave the party, highlighting his significant contributions to the party’s success and acknowledging the party’s support for him.
He also pointed out that Alan Kyeremateng had a long-standing tenure at the trade ministry in Ghana.
Speaking on the Okyeame Radio Adekyee Mu Nsem show with Kaakyire Kwame Asare Addai-Mununkum, Alex Tetteh recognized that Alan’s resignation would have some impact on the party.
Nonetheless, he urged party members to come together and concentrate on the objective of achieving an eighth consecutive term in office.
He stated that many key members of Alan Cash’s campaign team have expressed their loyalty to the party’s ideology and principles rather than any individual.
The MP of Akontombra stressed that the party’s strength lies in its grassroots, and he expressed doubt that the majority of staunch NPP supporters would switch allegiance to Alan Kyeremateng.
He emphatically underlined his belief that Alan’s chances of securing the presidency would be extremely slim as an independent candidate.
Additionally, Alex Tetteh argued that the reasons behind Alan’s departure from the NPP were not compelling, and he suggested that ultimately, Alan’s decision might hinder the political aspirations of his relatives who may wish to pursue careers in politics.
