Here is what celebrities are saying about Alan Kyerematen’s withdrawal from NPP flagbearership race


Following his pulling out of the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) flagbearer race, Alan Kyerematen has been the subject of many political debates, with some celebrities wading into the ongoing discussion.

Mr. Kyerematen, who many considered a possible NPP candidate into the 2024 election prior to the recently held Super Delegates Conference, announced his decision to step down on Tuesday, August 5, 2023, in a statement that went viral on social media, amidst shock and disappointment from Ghanaians.

“In light of the foregoing, I wish to confirm that I am honorably withdrawing from the process that will lead to the Presidential Primaries to be held on the 4th of November 2023. In the next upcoming weeks, I will provide an indication of the role that I will play in politics in Ghana, after consultations with my family and other well-wishers, various stakeholders and interest groups,” parts of the press statement read.
