Nana Akomea, Managing Director of the State Transport Corporation (STC), has responded to Alan Kyerematen’s criticisms of Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s aspiration to become President of Ghana on the New Patriotic Party (NPP) ticket.
Speaking at a gathering held by his “Movement for Change” team in the Ashanti Region, Alan Kyerematen claimed that since President Akufo-Addo and Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia are the same, the vice president has nothing fresh to offer the people of Ghana.
He said; “Almost eight years on, the Presidency and the Vice Presidency is one ticket… There’s no difference between the Presidency and Vice Presidency. They are the one and the same; it is a combined ticket.”
“So, whatever my younger brother Bawumia wants and can do, he has done already,” he added.
In response, Nana Akomea has advised Alan, the New Patriotic Party defector, to leave Dr. Mahamud Bawumia and the party alone, stating that he should focus on his own purpose.
“If you have decided to go solo, it’s okay. Nobody stop you though we wished you would come back to us. But these blows you are throwing at the NPP are unnecessary; if you do that, then someone also would have to respond to you and it will look like we are also hitting at you. We don’t want that, so we plead with him” to stop it, he said on Peace FM’s morning show “Kokrokoo”.
Nana Akomea emphasized that Alan was to familiarize Ghanaians with his movement; “We plead with him to focus on his activities. He should concentrate on his message and vision for Ghanaians…He should leave the NPP and our flagbearer alone so that we don’t also retaliate in like manner. He should do his campaign in peace.”
