Alan Kyerematen

Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen, a presidential hopeful of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has re-echoed plans to ensure national party executives receive salary and social security benefits, if he becomes the flagbearer of the governing party.

According to him, it is time for the burden carriers of the party to enjoy the full benefits of their sweat and labour that had helped the NPP to win two general elections in the country.

Mr Kyerematen said this during a meeting with delegates from three constituencies, Ablekuma Central, Ablekuma North and Ablekuma East, to mark the beginning of his tour of the Greater Accra Region yesterday.

In February this year, while on a tour of the Volta Region, he made a similar declaration, noting that it is prudent to motivate party executives so that they can devote their energy, time and effort to building the party’s fortunes and structures.

He added that if this is well implemented, it would generate an appetite in the younger generation towards civic activity and people to appreciate that this is a party worth sacrificing their lives for.

Delegates at the mini durbar campaign event were excited at the proposition, which has been of utmost concern to NPP executives, delegates, polling agents, and active foot soldiers.

Among party stalwarts who accompanied Alan on the first leg of his Greater Accra tour were former Attorney General Ayikoi Otoo, the Minister of Railway and Rail Transport, Peter Amewu, and NPP chairpersons in the three Ablekuma constituencies.

Campaign tour
A statement issued by Yaw Buaben Asamoa, press secretary to Kyerematen, indicated that Mr Kyerematen will engage party delegates in cluster meetings throughout the country as part of a robust campaign tour to garner support for his presidential bid.
The former Trade and Industry Minister is expected to engage over 200,000 delegates in the ground-breaking cluster delegates’ meetings, where he will be detailing his “Great Transformational Plan,” ahead of the party’s presidential primary election on 4 November.

“This innovation is expected to change the dynamics of aspirant and delegate interactions, giving diverse delegates from different constituencies a unique opportunity to meet, fraternize and share experiences from differing perspectives,” the statement said.
The clusters comprise constituencies with adjoining borders and common characteristics. This strategic arrangement aims to maximize interaction and cooperation among party members.
Delegates and the presidential hopeful will “devise winning strategies towards the A4P goal of building a strong partnership for power between the NPP and the public,” the statement stated.
It added that “participation in the durbars is expected to lift the spirits of the delegates and the rank and file of the party, renewing hope that ‘Together, We Will Win’ the 2024 general and presidential elections to transform the fortunes of Ghana.”
