Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen, a prospective New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer, has been advised by former Central Regional Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Bernard Allotey Jacobs, to disband his campaign squad.
He revealed how Alan’s campaign team members were damaging his reputation and ultimately leading to his demise.
He pointed out that the team members’ comments have been incredibly detrimental, especially following Alan’s performance at the NPP Special Delegates Conference last Saturday.
“Though Heaven and Earth has taken a decision that Bawumia is the chosen one, he (Alan) has a major role to play in his party but the problem he has is his campaign team…their utterances are extremely bad,” he said on Accra-based Peace FM.
“Does he expect to win the elections with this team? No, it’s not possible,” he added.
He believed that Mr. Kyerematen, who he regarded as calm and a great person, may have a shot at winning the presidency provided he made some difficult choices.
Six NPP presidential candidates passed the party’s Super Delegates Conference on Saturday, August 28.
Kennedy Agyapong received 15.03% (132) of the votes cast, trailing Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia by 68.15% (629) of the total votes cast.
Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto finished fourth with 3.90% of the votes cast, followed by Mr. Kyerematen in fourth place with 10.29% (95) of the total votes cast.
However, Yaw Buaben Asamoah, a spokeswoman for Alan’s campaign, is still optimistic that the outcome in November would be radically different.
