Alan Kyerematen, Minister of Trade and Industry, has stated his intention to run for the New Patriotic Party’s flagbearer position (NPP).
Alan has been largely silent on his stance ahead of the 2024 elections, which many believe will be a close race between him and Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia.
Alan is heard saying in a UTV video clip shared on social media that he has previously sacrificed for President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to lead a united party into the 2008 election and that it was time for others to sacrifice for him to lead.
“You remember when we went to Legon to elect a leader, you remember there were only two people out of the 17, who and who?” he says to a crowd of party supporters. Remember Alan and Nana Addo?
“I had over 32% and Nana had over 40%, but because of the party’s unity, I decided to support Nana so that we can all rally behind him.” “It is time for others to make sacrifices and give Alan the opportunity to lead this party,” he stated.
