Alan Kyerematen resigned from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) on January 7, 2023. He announced his resignation in a letter to the President of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo. Kyerematen had been a member of the NPP for over 20 years and held several ministerial positions in the Akufo-Addo government, including Minister of Trade and Industry.
Kyerematen did not state a specific reason for his resignation in his letter to the President. However, he had previously expressed his intention to run for President of Ghana in 2024. It is widely believed that Kyerematen resigned from the NPP so that he could run for President as an independent candidate.
Kyerematen's resignation is a significant development in Ghanaian politics. He is a popular figure in Ghana and is seen as a potential challenger to President Akufo-Addo in the 2024 election. It remains to be seen how Kyerematen's independent bid will perform in the election, but it is sure to shake up the political landscape in Ghana.
