FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
September 25, 2023
I find it necessary to address the recent decision of Hon. Alan Kyerematen to leave the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and run as an independent candidate in 2024.
First and foremost, while I enjoy both a personal and professional relationship with Hon. Alan Kyerematen, characterized by mutual respect and a shared commitment to our nation's progress, I must respectfully distance myself from his recent choice.
My dedication to the New Patriotic Party is deep-seated, rooted in our shared values and vision for a prosperous Ghana. The NPP's strength has always been its unity and our ability to work together for the common good of our country.
Let us look forward to the future, keeping the best interests of our party and our beloved Ghana at heart.
With determination and unity, we can continue to work towards a brighter future for all Ghanaians.
ABENA OSEI-ASARE( MP)
DEPUTY FINANCE MINISTER
