The Ashanti Regional leadership of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has issued a directive to all chairpersons in the 47 constituencies to remove all posters, banners, and other campaign materials associated with the former Trade and Industry Minister, Alan Kyerematen, from their party offices.
This follows the resignation of Mr. Kyerematen from the party on Monday, September 25 which came as a shock to all including the NPP.
According to the party, this directive is necessary as the former flagbearer aspirant is no longer part of the NPP.
In a memorandum dated September 25, 2023 which was signed by the Ashanti Regional Chairman of the NPP, Bernard Antwi Boasiako, the party emphasized that Mr. Kyerematen’s promotional materials are no longer relevant within the party offices due to his resignation.
“In view of Hon. Alan Kyerematen’s resignation from the party, all his posters, banners, flyers and paraphernalia at our party offices in all the constituencies must be removed with immediate effect.”
“Once he has forfeited his membership, it is just right and fair that these items are removed from our offices,” part of the memo stated.
On Monday, Mr. Alan John Kwadwo Kyerematen announced his resignation from the NPP at the Movenpick Ambassador Hotel in Accra.
He also disclosed his decision to contest the presidential race as an independent candidate in the 2024 general elections by introducing a new movement which he calls, ‘Movement for Change’.
This according to him signifies transformation, hope and positivity.
The NPP thereafter called on all supporters to remain calm.
