Boakye Kyeremateng Agyarko, a former New Patriotic Party (NPP) candidate for president, believes it’s not appropriate to celebrate Alan Kyerematen’s resignation from the party.
Alan’s departure “must serve a necessary and sufficient notice to the party and lead it into a time of reflection,” the former Energy Minister said in a statement.
He claims that many party members have feelings of resignation and have such feelings in their hearts.
“At least, my brother Kyerematen has put his thoughts and feelings on paper for all to appreciate. How about the many who harbor similar and maybe more petulant sentiments in their hearts but are not openly expressing same. There are many in our party today who have, out of dismay, resigned in their hearts and are only waiting to walk away from us at the ballot box.”
“Now is the time to smoothen ruffled feathers and assuage wounded sentiments across the length and breadth of our party. Now is the time to examine ourselves if indeed we are true and faithful to the tenets and values of the UP tradition or we have metamorphosed into an ugly shadow of what we should be. These must become the urgent task ahead of us,” the statement read.
