Fahd Osman, a member of the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) national communication team, has responded to reports that former Trades and Industry Minister Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen would be joining forces with another political party in 2024 by pleading with him to think about what he can do to help the NPP win back some votes.
While conceding that Alan must make the decision, he highlighted during an interview on GTV’s breakfast show, monitored by 1Family Radio, that they want Alan to get fully involved in the next election campaign of the party.
“We can’t make him do anything, but we beg him not to consider damaging the party at this time,” he said.
According to Osman, the success of the NPP depends on the concerted efforts of all party members, regardless of their faction.
He pointed out that while the reasons Alan withdrew from the race may have been legitimate—reasons that were made clear to the public and the party leadership—it is also crucial for him at this critical moment not to run against the NPP in 2024 but rather to work with the flagbearer to retain power.
He continued, “The truth of the matter is, whatever decision he will make, if it goes against our party, it is going to hurt our party’s chances in 2024.”
He added that it is important for the party to talk about all the issues brought up during the presidential primaries rather than having a member leave.
