    People ‘behind the curtain’ in NPP calling the shots, not Ministers – Alan

    Independent presidential aspirant, Alan Kyerematen, has asserted that there are prominent figures within the administration led by President Akufo-Addo who wield more influence than government ministers.

    Mr Kyerematen, who recently distanced himself from the New Patriotic Party (NPP), went on to emphasize that the current dynamics in both the government and the party depart from the typical practices of the NPP.

    During an interview with Accra-based Citi TV, one of the founding members of the NPP raised questions about the roles played by these “behind-the-scenes” individuals during the party’s establishment.

    “Are you not aware or have you not heard there are people behind the curtain who have more influence in governance now than even ministers?… You have not heard about people behind the curtain who have significant influence and control in the party?” he said on September 27,” he said.

    “When we started in 1992, where were they, the so-called behind-the-curtain people,” he quizzed.

    On the other hand, Alan Kyerematen has refuted allegations that he presented a facade of unity to the NPP chairman, Stephen Ntim, during his final days with the party.

    In an exclusive interview with JoyNews, the former NPP flagbearer aspirant clarified that he had engaged in conversations with Mr. Ntim on various occasions. During these discussions, he pointed out numerous shortcomings within the party. Despite receiving acknowledgment from the party chairman, his concerns remained unaddressed.

    As a result, Mr. Kyerematen not only finds the chairman’s assertion that he had no grievances with the party to be untrue but also considers it “disingenuous and very unfortunate.”

    “He’s a very good friend of mine. You are the chairman of a party. You come to me to ask whether I have any challenges with what is going on. I scope for you all the things I believe have been going wrong. I’ve had personal conversations with him before and he’s aware of that.”
