Alan John Kwadwo Kyerematen, a flagbearer hopeful of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has frowned on the abuse of incumbency.

According to Mr Kyerematen, his stand against the use of state resources for political campaign was one of the key factors that led to his resignation from his previous position as the Minister of Trade and Industry.

During the official launch of the Alan Cash Donation Platform, which aims to support his bid to lead the NPP in the 024 elections, he expressed his commitment to establishing a government that truly serves the people.

He emphasized the importance of partnering with individuals who share his vision for retaining power by soliciting funds.

He firmly stated, "If you're involved in politics, it's not solely about money, but money does play a role. I will not utilize government resources for political purposes. So, when I decided to run for President, I resigned in order to gather funds for my political campaign."

Currently, a total of 10 individuals have obtained nomination forms to compete in the NPP flagbearer race scheduled for November 2023.

Notable persons who have picked nomination forms include Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the Vice President of Ghana, John Alan Kyerematen, the former Minister of Trade and Industry, and Kennedy Agyapong, the Member of Parliament for Assin North Central.

Other candidates vying for the position include Joe Ghartey, Dr. Afriyie Akoto, former Energy Minister Boakye Agyarko, former General Secretary of the NPP Kwabena Agyei Agyapong, Dr. Kofi Konadu Apraku, and former Member of Parliament for Mampong Francis Addai-Nimoh.

The flagbearer election is scheduled to take place on Saturday, November 4, 2023.
