Alan Kyeremanten sells message of hope to delegates

The race to elect the flagbearer of the opposition New Patriotic Party is steadily gathering momentum with the former Ambassador to the United States and Minister of Trade & Industry, Mr. Alan Kyerematen giving a message of hope to his party people.

Mr. Alan Kyerematen, popularly known as ‘Alan Cash’, has in the last month been speaking to party delegates with a message of strengthening the grassroots, which appears to be resonating with the party people.

The trade expert who doubles as a business consultant, lawyer and economist advised that the party could not afford to lose the 2016 general elections and hence it needed to be well-resourced and better organized at the grassroots for a resounding victory.

Mr. Kyerematen strongly advocated that the NPP seriously needed to consider and remunerate party faithful who are willing to work full time for the party.

He stated that, “the party must be in the position to care for its hardworking party people and this is non-negotiable!”


In the Greater Accra region where he is currently touring, a delegate could not hide her emotions and burst into tears saying, “God bless you Alan Cash for thinking about we the party people”.

She recounted the difficulties she goes through as a polling station women organizer in organizing the party without any source of income.

She further stated “Alan Cash has good thoughts for us (polling station executives) and that his very humble and calm nature will make the difference to enable us win power in the general elections”.

Mr. Alan Kyerematen is accompanied by some leading members of the NPP including, former Volta Regional Minister, Kofi Dzamesi, , Nana Ohene Ntow, former General Secretary and Dr. Heka Benson, former Upper West regional minister.
