“Catherine Afeku Asserts Loyalty as She Distances Herself from Alan Kyerematen”

Former Tourism Minister, Catharine Afeku, has distanced herself from Alan Kyerematen’s camp following his announcement of resignation from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and his intent to run as an Independent Candidate in the 2024 elections. Afeku, who actively supported Kyerematen during the NPP’s Presidential primaries, reaffirmed her allegiance to the NPP, making it clear that she won’t join any other political party. Speaking to journalists in Accra, Afeku stated, “I am a loyal patriot, and I am firmly within the NPP. The party is supreme; we are the NPP.”

Deputy Finance Minister Abena Osei-Asare also distanced herself from Alan’s decision on Monday. While acknowledging her personal and professional relationship with Kyerematen, she stressed her unwavering dedication to the New Patriotic Party, rooted in their shared values. In a press statement, Osei-Asare said, “First and foremost, while I enjoy both a personal and professional relationship with Hon. Alan Kyerematen, characterized by mutual respect and a shared commitment to our nation’s progress, I must respectfully distance myself from his recent choice. My dedication to the New Patriotic Party is deeply ingrained, based on our shared values and vision for a prosperous Ghana. The NPP’s strength has always been its unity and our ability to work together for the common good of our country.”

Member of Parliament (MP) for Mpraeso, Davis Opoku Ansah, indicated that the over 20 New Patriotic Party MPs who supported Alan Kyerematen in the Special Delegates Conference would not support his movement. In an interview on Eyewitness News, he stated, “I wouldn’t say that political parties do not or will not have differences. There may be factions and differences, but the ability to come together in an internal political context demonstrates the strength of your party. And for me, that commitment is unwavering. I know that over 20 MPs who supported Alan Kyerematen have resolved to stay loyal to the NPP, represent its power again, and work tirelessly to ensure the NPP regains power in 2024. None of the MPs supporting Alan Kyerematen will join his movement, but we wish him well.”
