According to Frederick Opare-Ansah, a member of Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s campaign team, Alan Kyerematen resigned from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) because he was dissatisfied with his third-place finish in the party’s super delegates conference.
He suggested that Alan’s claims of unfairness, which led to his resignation, were unfounded, as it was reported that his agents had initiated trouble in one of the centers during the conference.
“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.” he said.
Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia won the New Patriotic Party super delegates conference with a total of 629 votes, representing 68.15% of the vote, with Kennedy Agyapong coming in second with 132 votes while Alan placed third with 95 votes, or 10.29%.
Dissatisfied with the outcome and citing unfairness, Alan on September 25 announced his resignation from the NPP.
