Former Trade and Industry Minister and one of the five presidential aspirants of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), who just announced his resignation from the party, Mr. John Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen known in the Ghanaian political circles as Alan Cash says he is the only leader who can guarantee Ghana’s economic turnaround.
Addressing the media in Accra on Monday, September 25, 2023 where Mr Alan Cash announced his resignation from the NPP with immediate effect used to opportunity to declare his intention to complete for the topmost leadership position in Ghana come December 7, 2023 as an independent candidate.
According to him his intention to contest the 2024 polls as an independent candidate is premised on his belief that he is the only person when given the opportunity he will transform Ghana’s warbling economy.
“I am using this platform to introduce myself to you, the good people of Ghana and humbly seek your support to become the next President of the Republic of Ghana.
I believe, with unwavering conviction, that I am the only leader who, with unmatched integrity, can guarantee the economic and industrial transformation of Ghana, the restoration of confidence in political leadership, and the unification of an increasingly divided nation,” Alan boasted.
According to him, his unique selling proposition focuses on “vision, competence, integrity and action.”
He said that the country’s pervasive employment crisis is gradually becoming a national security threat.
This, he noted was evidenced by the three-day “Occupy Julorbi House” protests organised by the Democracy Hub in Accra.
“Every year over 300,000 graduates from tertiary institutions in Ghana, excluding those from secondary institutions, enter the job market with little or no hope of finding a job. Clearly, public sector employment is not an option, with an already over-bloated public service.
This phenomenon of pervasive employment crisis is gradually becoming a national security threat, as evidenced by the recent “Occupy Julorbi House” demonstrations.
The initial reaction of the Police in manhandling some protestors is not the solution to the problem. What Ghana needs now is CHANGE, which will provide long-lasting solutions to the challenges confronting our country,” Mr Kyerematen revealed.
