The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has lamented that the mode in which the former Minister of Trade and Industries, Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen, resigned from the party is disappointing.
According to the party, it only learned about his resignation through the press conference he held on Monday, September 25, without prior notice to the party.
“The Party wants to believe that his decision to hold a press conference to resign without first informing the leadership of the Party suggests that he has made a premeditated and irrevocable decision to resign from the Party”, it stated
The General Secretary of the party, Justin Kodua Frimpong, revealed this at a press conference on Tuesday, September 26, at the party`s headquarters.
“It needs emphasizing that, when the National Chairman visited him on behalf of the Party after the August 26 Special Electoral College, in an attempt to bring all the ten aspirants together, he did not portray any sign of resigning from the party, let alone going independent”, he added.
He said the party acknowledges Mr. Kyerematen’s contributions to the party’s growth and development over the years, respects his decision, and extends its gratitude for the services rendered to the NPP and the nation.
The secretary emphasized that the NPP has always been a dynamic and resilient political party, and this moment serves as an opportunity for members to demonstrate their unity, fortitude, and unwavering commitment to the principles upon which the party was founded.
“As the party strives to win the 2024 general election and make a monumental record, we urge party faithfuls to reaffirm their dedication towards this common goal. Our party’s strength has always been derived from the unity and resilience of our members, and we call upon each and every one of you to rally together and uphold the principles that define us”, he stressed.
