Alan Launches Campaign For NPP Flagbearer Contest

DSC_0331The New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer aspirant, Alan John Kwadjo Kyeremanteng, has promised to deliver a “one-touch” victory for the party in the 2016 general elections if party delegates give him the nod in the flagbearer contest slated for October 18.

He emphasised that, he “is the key to unlock the party’s victory” and that party delegates should reject the twice defeated presidential candidate of the party if the party wants political power in the country.

Mr. Kyeremanteng who was speaking at the launch of his campaign over the weekend in Accra told a mammoth crowd of party delegates and supporters that their vote on October 18 would decide the destiny of the country.

“Your vote come October 18 will decide the destiny of Ghana. It is important for you to note that the party and the nature of the party’s candidate matters in Ghana’s elections,” he stressed.

He noted that the NPP would be a different party under his leadership and that as flagbearer he would mobilise resources to enable the party conduct effective campaign to wrestle power from “this incompetent NDC government”.

Mr. Kyeremanteng said one of his strategies is to equip polling station executives, pay them monthly allowances to enable them conduct full time work for the party.

Additionally, he would champion the rebuilding of the party to ensure a “strong united NPP to fight for power in the next general elections”.

Mr. Kyeremanteng maintained that: “I do not hate Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo” and that there is a cordial relationship between “me and my senior colleague”.

He, therefore, urged all NPP supporters to conduct the flagbearer contest in a peaceful manner and ensure that “whoever wins, the party all will support that person to wrestle power from the NDC government which had failed Ghanaians”.

He said he would embark on massive infrastructure development, industrialisation of the economy, jobs which would bring cash to the ordinary Ghanaians, peace and fight corruption when Ghanaians vote for him as president of the country.

The Member of Parliament for Nhyieso Constituency in the Ashanti Region, Dr. Richard Anane described as unjust and unfair the October 18 date slated for the contest.

According to him, the party’s constitution and regulations stipulates that at least any flagbearer aspirant should be given six months to campaign before the elections.

“However, some people in this party somehow have succeeded in manipulating the process to only three months, which I think the party executives should do the right thing. The process must be fair, so that, the loosing candidate can wholeheartedly accept his defeat and support the winning candidate,” he stressed.

Dr. Anane, nonetheless maintained that Mr. Kyeremanteng’s camp is poised for the next month’s contest.

He described Mr. Kyeremanteng, a former Trade Minister as respectful, humble, a peaceful person and one with great vision and big dream for the country and urged party delegates to vote massively for him.

Nana Ohene Ntow, former General Secretary of the NPP said the party got a leader in the past who could not unite the party and stressed that Mr. Kyeremanteng is a unifier who can even pull other party members into the NPP.

He said Mr. Kyeremanteng is number three on the ballot paper and urged the delegates to go and campaign for him to win the flagbearer contest.

Madam Hilda Addo, former Kwadaso MP in the Ashanti Region maintained that Mr. Kyeremanteng has a winning disposition and that he appeals more to the floating voters in the country.

She charged the polling station executives and delegates to vote wisely to ensure victory for “Alan Cash who is a grassroots person”.
