Frederick Opare-Ansah, a member of Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s campaign team, thinks Alan Kyerematen quit the New Patriotic Party (NPP) because he was not satisfied with his third-place finish in the party’s superdelegates conference.
at an interview with Face to Face on Citi TV, the former Suhum MP said that Alan’s resignation was due to unjust treatment and that his agents were the ones who allegedly started disturbance at one of the conference centers.
“From what I heard, he was unhappy about the position he received, but that, in my opinion, shouldn’t have been the way he chose to exit the NPP.”
“I have also listened to what happened, and in fact, the attack was initiated by his agent going out of his way to take on a function that is not his own. For example, if someone shows his ballot, it is not the responsibility of an agent to stop him from putting it in the box; it is a matter for the EC and the police who are there.”
With 629 votes, or 68.15% of the total, Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia won the New Patriotic Party super delegates conference. Alan came in third with 95 votes, or 10.29%, while Kennedy Agyapong came in second with 132 votes.
On September 25, Alan announced his resignation from the NPP, alleging injustice and dissatisfaction with the outcome.
However, the former legislator informed Umaru Sanda Amadu that Alan’s worries were unfounded and that he could have waited to act further until his claims were looked into, which he chose not to do.
“It is totally a non-issue because this is an issue that has been reported to the national party through the Elections Committee. So he should have waited to see what the result of the investigation would have been and what sanctions would have been applied.”
