Ahead of the 2024 general elections, around 20 New Patriot Party MPs who backed Alan Kyerematen at the Special Delegates Conference have stated that they would not join Davis Opoku Ansah’s movement. Davis Opoku Ansah is the Member of Parliament (MP) for Mpraeso.
Instead, he asserted that they are loyal to the government and will make every effort to keep the NPP in power.
“I know that over 20 MPs who supported Alan Kyerematen have all resolved that we solemnly believe in the NPP and we are going to work tirelessly to ensure that the NPP wins power again in 2024. None of the MPs that support Alan Kyerematen will follow him in his movement but we wish him well” OPK said in an interview on Citi FM.
Mr. Opoku Ansah, a fervent follower of Mr. Kyerematen, left the NPP when he declared his intention to run as an independent in the general elections of 2024.
OPK, as he was popularly known, voiced his displeasure with Mr. Kyerematen in a statement.
On Monday, September 25, Mr. Kyerematen addressed a crowd at the Movenpick Ambassador Hotel and announced his desire to leave the NPP and also declared his intention to try for the presidency as an independent candidate.
