Allotey Jocobs, a former Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Central Region has said Alan Kyeremanten is not fit for politics.
The former New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer candidate, according to him, is too noble to remain in Ghanaian politics.
Speaking on the back of Alan’s withdrawal from the NPP presidential race, Allotey Jacobs said in politics “there’s the good, the bad and the ugly” and that if you don’t know how to play by them, you’ll see the system as ‘unfair’.
Speaking on why he believes Alan didn’t do very well in the Super Delegates Conference, he said: “He’s faded out of the system…” he added.
Alan Kyeremanten withdrawing from the flagbearer race is positive for the NPP, according to Nana Akomea, CEO of the State Transport Company (STC).
Speaking on Accra’s Asempa FM, he stated, “My elder brother Alan Kyerematen’s withdrawal from the NPP flagbearer race’s second round is wonderful news. I had anticipated it, and now I anticipate even more competitors dropping out.
Nana Akomea replied in the positive when asked by the show’s host, Osei Bonsu [Alias OB], whether he anticipates Mr. Kyerematen and his supporters will back Dr. Bawumia.
“I think so. Once you take the lead, you are the one everyone wants to associate with. Everybody likes a winning team. So, we will speak with Alan and his supporters to come and join us. The reason why I said I expect all the others to withdraw from the race is that, the party has clearly shown where its heart is. If in an election of 10 contestants, the vote of nine people cannot even match the half of what one person got, then it is really clear where the party’s heart is so what is the need for the contest?” he quizzed.
On Tuesday, September 5, Mr. Kyeremanten declared his resignation from the second round of the presidential election. He did so after astonishingly finishing third in the super delegates’ meeting and claimed electoral irregularities, unjust treatment, and bias.
