    ‘I don’t take instructions from people’ – Alan to NPP over resignation

    On September 25, former presidential candidate for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Alan Kyerematen announced his resignation from the ruling party during a press conference, where he revealed that he would be contesting the 2024 presidential elections as an independent candidate.

    Following this, the New Patriotic Party, during a press conference moderated by its General Secretary, Justin Frimpong Kodua, disclosed that Mr Kyerematen failed to inform the party of his intentions ahead of this significant move.

    He said the party was disappointed and distressed by his failure to engage the party. According to Mr Frimpong Kodua, this gives the assertion that his resignation was premeditated and irrevocable.

    In response to the party’s statement, Mr Kyerematen said he found no need to inform the party of his decision as he is an independent individual capable of making rational decisions.

    “I went to a contest, and after my review of the contest, I decided to exit the party. I don’t have to inform anyone.

    “I am an established man, and I don’t take instructions from people. I might look younger, but I’m an elderly man,” he said on Accra-based UTV.

    Mr Kyerematen argues that his services are no longer needed by the ruling party.

    “Under the circumstances and given the context provided, I wish to use this platform to announce that I am honourably resigning with immediate effect from the New Patriotic Party to contest for the high office of the President of the Republic of Ghana in the 2024 General Elections, as an Independent Presidential Candidate,” he said in his speech.
