Solomon Owusu, an Aide to former Flagbearer hopeful of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Alan Kyerematen, has welcome the decision to immediately remove all of Alan’s posters at NPP offices across the region, saying it has done the veteran politician a lot of good.
The Ashanti regional Chairman of the NPP, Bernard Antwi Boasiako aka Chairman ‘Wontumi’ has directed all the 47 constituency Chairmen in the region to supervise the immediate removal of all Posters, flyers, Banners bearing the image of former Trade Minister, Alan Kyerematen from various party offices and other vantage locations.
The directive follows the NPP founding member’s resignation which was announced at a press conference on Monday 25th September 2023 in Accra.
“In view of Hon. Alan Kyerematen’s resignation from the party all his posters, Banners, flyers, paraphernalias at our party offices in all the constituencies must be removed with immediate effect’’ a statement signed by Wontumi said.
It added “once Alan has forfeited his membership, it is fair and right that these items are removed from our offices.”
But reacting to Chairman Wontumi’s statement while speaking on Ghana Kasa show on Kasapa 102.5/Agoo TV Wednesday, Solomon Owusu who also announced his resignation from the NPP on the show said, Wontumi’s decision inures to Alan’s benefit as the latter would have spent huge sums of money to remove all his posters.
“The decision that Alan’s posters should be removed across the Ashanti Region helps Mr. Alan Kyerematen. In fact, we would have incurred cost by hiring people to take off all his posters at party facilities. So, we thank the NPP, especially Wontumi for his decision which will save us huge money. We are very grateful to God for this, it is a blessing in disguise.
“You see, in Chairman Wontumi’s bid to rush and make noise, he has rather made a fool out of himself. As soon as I heard that he has issued that memo, I said this is good for Mr Kyerematen. We will soon paste our (Movement for Change) posters all over the place to make us more visible. I encourage all the regional executives to follow what Chairman Wontumi has done. I hear Alan’s posters are also being removed in the Upper East and Northern Regions, it is good for us so they should continue removing it to make way for our posters.”
