2024 Elections: Choose me – Alan Kyerematen to Ghanaians

As the 2024 elections get near, independent presidential candidate Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen has attacked the two major political parties, the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).

According to Mr. Kyerematen, the NDC and NPP don’t have any real answers for the economic problems that Ghanaians face.

He specifically chastised them for relying on bailouts from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) throughout their individual administrations.

2024 Elections: Choose me – Alan Kyerematen Urges Ghanaians

Mr. Kyerematen positioned himself as the best qualified candidate to lead the necessary transformation that Ghanaians yearned for, given his status as the Movement for Change’s founder and leader.

He begged people to make him their first pick in the next elections, which are scheduled for 2024.

Kyerematen expressed discontent with the current duopoly and questioned whether Ghanaians actually wanted change.

“Do you sincerely believe that, generally, people are looking for change in this country? People want to go beyond the duopoly. The two political parties [NDC, NPP] for the last 32 years, whatever, they can do, we have all seen what they can do,” he asked in an interview on Citi TV.

He stressed the need for a departure from the status quo, given the nation’s enduring economic struggles and the recurrent reliance on IMF assistance by both major parties.

“People are beginning to ask questions, so if after 32 years, we are in such a deep economic mess, it was no better during the NDC days. Getting to the end of the NDC, we went to IMF, and getting to the second term of the NPP, we are going to IMF. Does it take any level of sophisticated thinking for you to realize as a Ghanaian that it is time for a change? It’s clear that we need to try something different,” he noted.

The former Trade Minister highlighted his track record of effectiveness in both former President John Agyekum Kufuor’s and President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s administrations. He particularly underscored his achievements in spearheading the One-District-One-Factory (1D1F) initiative.

“If you look at my record under former President J. A Kufuor’s administration and President Akufo-Addo’s government. People who have been part of this government will tell you that I was probably one of the most effective ministers in both administrations. In terms of my area of focus, in terms of innovations, executing capacity. Right now, if the NPP wants to talk about their achievements, I think the most comprehensive and innovative programme for the NPP has been the One-District-One-Factory initiative. It’s been one of the greatest success stories of the NPP,” he stated.
