Alan Kyerematen, Minister of Trade and Industry has made clear his intentions of contesting for the flagbearer position of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Alan had been largely silence on his position ahead of the 2024 polls which many believe it’s a fierce contest between him and Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia.
In a UTV video clip shared on social media, Alan is heard stating that he has in the past sacrificed for President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to lead a united party into the 2008 election and that it was time that others sacrificed for him to lead.
Addressing a crowd of party faithful, he is heard saying: “You remember when we went to Legon to elect a leader, you remember there were only two people out of the 17, who and who? Alan and Nana Addo, you remember?
“I had over 32% and Nana had over 40%, but because of the unity of the party, I decided that I will support Nana so that we all rally behind him. It is time for other people to sacrifice and give Alan the chance to lead this party,” he stated.
