Pro Alan Kyerematen groups within the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) grassroot have called the bluff of the national executives for warning them against their planned health walk.
The groups which are widely known to be aligned to the Trade and Industry Minister, Alan John Kwadwo Kyerematen have planned a health walk to commemorate their support for his intentions to lead the party in the 2024 general elections.
But the national executives of the party has issued a strong warning to caution the said groups to halt their health walk as they explain the move is against code of ethics of the party.
National Organizer of the NPP, Henry Nana Boakye speaking on Akoma FM’s current affairs and political show GhanAkoma explained that “the group will risk the chance of their prospective candidates if they organize the health walk in the name of Alan Kyerematen, because it is against the party’s code of ethics. So I will use this great platform to urge them to calm down. The time will due for such processions but as it stands, we are not yet there so let’s allow the party processes to unfold.”
Meanwhile, one of the organizers of the Alan Kyerematen health walk, James Nana Prempeh who doubles as assembly member for Fankyenebra electoral area reacting to the party’s directives called the bluff of the executives.
He explained that “the executives cannot foil a planned health walk. We are loyalists of Alan Kyerematen so we want to exercise to keep ourselves fit so that when Alan wins the nod to lead the party into the 2024 polls we would have reserved energy to campaign. So we will not call it off”
Mr. Prempeh who chided the National organizer quizzed “why didn’t the same executives call Wontumi to order when he openly declared his support for Dr Bawumia? So for me I think Nana Boakye is just being hypocritical so we will pretend we haven’t heard their tantrums.”
Joining the discussion was former Assembly member for Afful Nkwanta, Lawrence Adu who added that “the directives from the national executives is hypocritical” citing Wontumi’s endorsement of Bawumia which was overlooked.
Dubbed ‘Aduru Wo So’ walk, the intended health walk is scheduled to come off Saturday August 13, 2022. The walk is expected to start at exactly 5:30 am when the patrons will kickstart their walk from Bekwai roundabpout through the principal streets of Kumasi and end at Baba Yara Sports Stadium.
