According to Hopeson Adorye, officials from New Patriotic Party (NPP) polling places are exerting increasing pressure on Alan Kyerematen to step down as minister of trade and industry so that he can concentrate on his bid for the presidency.
In an interview with Okay FM on October 3, the former NPP candidate for Kpone Katamanso lauded the virtues of Alan Kyerematen.
He claimed that Alan Kyerematen had distinguished himself throughout his life and had waited patiently for his opportunity to lead the elephant party as its flagbearer.
He said that among the group of people whose names have surfaced in the campaign to be the party's flag bearer in 2024, the Trades Minister is still the lone contender.
According to Adorye, Alan Kyerematen's appeal to voters transcends partisan lines and includes members of the middle class.
Because we are bringing him, we say 'eduruwoso. Which candidate won't put us in conflict is the question we must ask. All the candidates are qualified, but which one won't put us up against the competition? We will only remain in power thanks to one guy.
"He is someone who can persuade members of the opposition to support the NPP by appealing to the middle class, kids, and party members. Alan Cash is the manifestation of him. There was no one else besides him. He is a man who has distinguished himself, therefore no one can find anything wrong with him. When it comes to following the NPP's prohibition on a campaign, Alan has behaved himself," he stated.
Yesterday was the Trades Minister's birthday, and according to Adorye, party members flocked to his office to rejoice with him while simultaneously pleading with him to step down from his position in government.
He voiced his belief that NPP delegates will support him strongly in the election, in which he is anticipated to face off against several other party heavyweights.
"Party representatives came in his office yesterday on his birthday (October 3, 2022) to persuade him to resign from his position in the administration and come and lead the party. They who wait will have their strength renewed, according to the Bible. If you consider how Alan has waited, even when he made an attempt to run for office in 2006, he was persuaded to let J. A. Kufuor and others take the lead.
He carefully awaited this moment while getting ready. By His Grace, God will pave the way for him. If you are focused, God will accomplish any goal you have for him. We will travel through while Christ is in the boat. By 2024, almost 140,000 of the 200,000 delegates to choose the flagbearer will support Alan Kyerematen in order for him to win the elections, according to Adorye.
The ardent admirer of Alan Kyerematen added that the opposition NDC has no choice except to send former President John Dramani Mahama to the elections in 2024.
The former NPP parliamentary candidate predicted that Alan Kyerematen will deliver a resounding victory for the ruling party by garnering 54% of the total votes cast in a race between the two candidates of the major political parties.
"Alan is being brought in as the flagbearer by the polling place officers. He is frequently questioned about his impending resignation as a minister. There is growing demand for him to resign from the people on the ground. John Mahama is thereby automatically the NDC's nominee. When John Mahama faces Alan, the NPP received 54% of the vote. I'm certain of that, Adorye replied with assurance.
The New Patriotic Party is determined to end the eight-year cycle of power sharing with the opposition NDC.
Prior to then, a flagbearer will be chosen the following year. In addition to Alan Kyerematen, other names that have surfaced include Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, Assin Central MP Kennedy Agyapong, and Former NPP General Secretary Kwabena Agyei Agyapong.
However, political observers believe that Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and Alan Kyerematen would face off in a two-horse race.
