Alan’s resignation is fair because of NPP’s shift from conservatism

Renowned political analyst Dr. Jonathan Ashante Otchere has indicated that the decision by the former Trade Minister, Alan Kyeremateng, to resign from the New Patriotic Party was justified due to what he perceives as a departure from the party’s conservative principles by the current party executives. 

According to him, the NPP has historically been known for its conservative values, but under the current leadership, there seems to be a significant transformation.

The seeming actions of the party to seemingly elevate Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia over Alan Kyerematen as a potential flagbearer for the 2024 elections, he said, are evidence of a fundamental shift within the party.

“The NPP has a long-standing reputation for upholding conservative principles in Ghanaian politics. When Kuffour intended to contest Adu Boahen, he was told his time was not due, and when it was his time and Akufo Addo wanted to also serve his party, he was told his time was not due. Now that it was Akufo Addo`s time and the party attempted to bring Alan ahead of him, he played that scenario to his advantage, and that got him sympathy, so what has changed,” he explained.

“Alan Kyerematen has been a prominent figure within the NPP for many years and has consistently championed the party’s conservative ideology. By bypassing him in favour of Dr. Bawumia, the party’s executives are sending a message that they are willing to deviate from their core values.”

Dr. Otchere made these comments on A1 Radio. 

The former Trade Minister’s resignation, coupled with Dr. Otchere’s analysis, highlights the ongoing ideological struggle within the NPP. 

Meanwhile, the Party, at a press conference held on Tuesday, September 26, 2023, responded to Alan Kyerematen`s resignation and some of his comments, saying the decisions and actions are based on the progress of the party and its prospects.
