A US-based Ghanaian lecturer, Prof. Kwabena Dei Ofori-Atta, has said that Alan Kyerematen, a former New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer hopeful, knows that he has no chance of winning the 2024 elections as an independent candidate.
Speaking in an interview on UTV, on Monday, September 25, 2023, Prof Ofori-Atta indicated that the only motive for Alan running as an independent candidate is to prevent the NPP from winning the 2024 elections.
He added that even Dr Kwame Nkrumah, when he broke away from the United Gold Coast Convention (UGCC), formed his own party, the Convention People’s Party (CPP), to get people to follow him, which Alan should have done if he really wanted to become president.
“… Nkrumah got angry and left his party, but he did not run for the presidency as an independent candidate. He formed his party, the CPP, and got a lot of followers. When Paa Willie also broke away from Busia’s party, he did not go independent, he formed his own party, the UNC (United National Convention).
“What Alan is doing is just hurt the NPP, he does not want the party to win the next elections… His thinking is that if the NPP is going to retain power without him as the party’s candidate then the party should collapse,” he said in Twi.
He added that Alan’s action shows that he is ungrateful because the NPP has done so much for him.
