Founder of the United Progressive Party, Akwasi Addai Odike, has set Alan Kyerematen above all politicians in Ghana in terms of incorruptibility.

The businessman cum politician thinks the founder of the Movement for Change is non-comparable when it comes to integrity as far as public service is concerned.

According to him, although the former Trade and Industry Minister was part of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), he has cannot be linked with a single incidence of corruption as far as his years in public service is concerned.

Speaking on Pae Mu Ka, an afternoon political show on Onua FM Tuesday, May 21, 2024, Mr. Odike noted that the originator of the Presidential Special Initiative under the erstwhile John Kufuor administration stands tall when it comes to composure and delivery in Ghana.

He bemoaned the New Patriotic Party for not allowing him to execute to perfection, the One District One Factory initiative which is his brainchild.

“Alan Kyerematen was part of them but he has no single record that shows he is corrupt. Alan Kyerematen is uncompromisingly incorruptible. I don’t tolerate nonsense, neither do I follow someone because of his background but how the person has carried himself and his vision for his people.

“There is no politician in Ghana that can compare himself to him when it comes to composure and delivery. One District One Factory is his brainchild but they sent the secretariat to the Jubilee House under Gifty Ohene Konadu to mess it up,” Odike told host, Yaa Titi Okrah, in Twi.
