Alan RESIGNED from NPP in 2007- Nana Ohene Ntow Admits


    The former General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Ohene Ntow has confirmed that Mr. Alan Kyerematen resigned from the party when he lost the NPP Presidential primaries to become its flagbearer in 2007 through a letter he wrote to the party.

    Nana Ohene Ntow who is now an aide to Mr. Alan Kyerematen made this assertion in an interview on Asempa Fm’s flagship political talk show, Ekosisen after a press statement purported to have been written by Mr. Kyerematen in 2007 was read to him for his confirmation.

    The host of the program, Osei Bonsu, read portions of the said press statement which was captured as follows:

    “I have monitored extensively media reportage and discussions within the past week, following my decision to resign from the New Patriotic Party (NPP). It is clear that there is a calculated attempt emanating from certain quarters, to create public disaffection against me for taking a decision on principles and to create the impression that I am vacillating on my decision to resign, thereby displaying inconsistency in thought and judgment. I wish to state categorically that I have not rescinded my decision to resign from the party.”

    The statement was further read as, “We must also not lose sight of the fact that national interest is superior to the interest of any single party. In this regard, I will soon give a firm indication of the role that I expect to play in the political landscape of the country. This, I believe, will bring hope and confidence to all Ghanaians irrespective of the political or religious affiliation or ethnic background”
