Alan Takes The Lead
Formally, former Trade and Industry Minister has declared his intention to contest for the Presidential candidate slot of the New Patriotic Party ahead of the 2024 elections. Not only did he declare his intention but also outlined what he intends to achieve when given the no in a press conference on 10th January, 2023,
Ghanaians are also expecting the resigned Agric Minister, Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto to also make an official announcement on his intention to contest for NPP’s flagbearership race as well.
New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) constitution states that ministers of state interested in contesting in the flagbearer race of the party should resign their positions to concentrate on their campaigns so that it does not interfere with governance. The above provision accounts for the resignation of the Alan Kyeremanteng and Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto.
H.E Dr. Mahamoud Bawumia is also expected to announce his presidential ambitions as well. Although no official communique has been made in that regard but it is publicly known that the Vice President will contest in the NPP’s Presidential primaries.
