Alan: The Loose Cannon

“Is it because he has been a member of the Young Executives for a long time? Or because he has been a Minister before, or is it because he had 700 votes? Would the delegates who voted for him follow him?”- Egbert Faibille on Joy Fm’s news file on 26 April 2008.

“I think Alan Kyeremanteng is bluffing the party. The party should not tolerate such bluff”- the late Mr. Da Rocha

“We must also not lose sight of the fact that national interest is superior to the interest of any single party. In this regard, I will soon give a firm indication about the role that I expect to play on the political landscape in the country. This, I believe, will bring hope and confidence to all Ghanaians irrespective of the political or religious affiliations or ethnic background”- Alan Kyeremanteng.

“I suggested to him that many within the party would interpret his action as lack of loyalty and commitment to the party. His response was that, if anybody thought so, so be it”- the late Mr. Da Rocha

“I wish to state categorically that I have not rescind my decision to resign from the party”- Alan Kyeremanteng.

From the above quotes especially paragraphs 3, the clear import of what Alan said was that he has in mind, a national interest superior to the interest of the NPP.

This is unequivocal declaration that he (Alan) has thought for himself a future role in politics outside the NPP. It is obvious that he has no deep- rooted commitment or loyalty to the party.

Am not a member of the NPP but to me Alan should not be made the touch bearer of the NPP and just to remind you (Alan) and your followers and aware of the monies you are sharing on your tour in Greater Accra.
