Social media activist and former Communications Manager at Airtel Ghana, Mr Raymond Ablorh has made a bold declaration about the Minister of Trade and Industry, Mr Alan John Kwadwo Kyeremantens potentials of becoming a flagbearer of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) for the 2024 general election.

Mr Abloh finally chooses between Mr Alan and  Vice President Dr Alhaji Mahamadu Bawumia for the NPP presidential slot for the 2024 general elections.

Commenting on the best candidate to lead NPP, the communications expert  explained that Mr Alan Kyerematen stands tall in terms of qualities to become President.

According to him, Ghanaians are not ready to have a President who has failed woefully in delivering his promises he made in the lead up to elections. 

He indicated that Ghanaians are discerning and make voting decisions according to a leader's performance

In  his article sighted on his official Facebook page, he indicated that Bawumia has failed to deliver promises he made to Ghanaians, explaining that Dr Bawumia’s deception has angered majority Ghanaians and some NPP sympathizers who have lost hope in the party. 

According to him, some New Patriotic Party (NPP) supporters are genuinely asking why he is not advising their delegates and NPP to choose the current Minister for Trade and Industry as their flagbearer for the 2024 elections.

He was of the view that "I think that's a more legitimate question than accusing me of defaming Vice President, Dr Alhaji Mahamadu Bawumia merely for pointing out why citizens are annoyed with him.

"Well, to those serious minded NPP members who sincerely desire to know, a number of factors should help the party decide.The most important is party unity at this stage."

He pointed that NPP, as it stands now is deeply divided, full of antagonisms and bitterness, resulting in a very worrying level of apathy among a significant section of party members.

 The situation, according to him, if not remedied, portends serious risk for the Party’s chances of winning in 2024.

Mr Abloh noted that the task of uniting the party ahead of 2024 will depend on the presidential candidate.

 Of all the names coming up, Mr Abloh stated that Mr Alan Kyerematen is one personality who clearly has what it takes to unite the NPP in order to  improve the party’s chances of winning.

He stressed that without a united party it will be near impossible for NPP to win 2024.

According to him, Mr Alan has shown his commitment and capacity to unite NPP by sacrificing his own presidential ambition in 1996 and 2007 in favour of party unity.

Ahead of the 1998 presidential primaries, he stated that the  party elders such as Appiah Menka talked Alan out of contesting in favor of older party personalities like Kufuor and Adu Boahen, although these conceded that at the time Alan could have beaten the contesting elders at the primaries.

In 2007, he said Mr Alan stood down for Akufo-Addo and saved the party acrimony, hostility and tensions that were threatening the peace and unity of the party.

He indicated that Mr Alan graciously conceded to Akufo-Addo without insisting on his constitutional right of a run-off, thus again sacrificing his presidential ambition for party peace and unity.

"It's only reasonable that party members and delegates consider first the health of the party without which, they're bound to lose before the main general elections campaigns start.

"If you disagree, raise intellectually potent arguments instead of wondering why I am concerned about who leads a quasi-public body to  elections that affect all of us.I will share the other factors with you later," he concluded.
