Ghanaians want NPP back in power - Alan Kyeremanten

Former Presidential Aspirant, Alan Kyeremanten, says Ghanaians are yearning for the return of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in power.

“…I believe that the people of Ghana are waiting to put the Government back into power in 2016 to provide the same kind of progressive, constructive and forward-looking leadership that we did during the eight years that we were in power…under the NPP administration,” Mr Kyeremanten told XYZ News Wednesday.

The twice-failed aspirant also told XYZ News his interest in contesting the flagbearership slot of the NPP has not withered.

“I have an interest in contesting, but this is not the forum and the time for me to make an announcement about my intention,” he said.

He nonetheless noted that; “…The issue is not who is leading the NPP; the issue is how we work together as a unified party to come back into power in 2016”.

The former Trades Minister also said his interest in Ghanaian politics remains unfettered.

“I’ll still be actively involved in politics,” he told XYZ News after donating items to orphans at the Osu Children’s home in Accra.
