'If it's not Alan's time then it's who, you hypocrites; we told Alan to wait after Akufo-Addo so we all agreed' – Carlos Ahenkorah

Carlos Kingsley Ahenkorah, Member of Parliament (MP) for Tema West has thrown his support behind Mr. Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen ahead of the NPP’s presidential primaries.

He believes everyone in the NPP must support the former Trade and Industry Minister.

Anyone who supported President Akufo-Addo in his days but against Mr. Kyerematen’s bid, according to the Tema West legislator, is a complete hypocrite.

He asserted that it is the turn of Mr. Kyerematen since the party by principle told him to wait and allow Akufo-Addo to go.

"Is it the case that Honourable Alan Kyerematen is not fit to be president? Is it the case that Alan Kyerematen cannot govern Ghana? I don't think the answer will be a yes," he told some newsmen in Accra on Monday, January 30.

He continued, "Anybody that supported President Akufo-Addo during that time and today has decided not to abide by the same principle, I will say he is a hypocrite. And I will not mix words."

Carlos Ahenkorah stressed, "For the same reason, I think that we are in that situation today that calls for people to understand that if we told Alan then that it wasn’t his time and we all stood behind President Akufo-Addo, and today you are coming back to say that it is not Alan's time, then I don't know whose time it is."
