Mr. Alan John Kwadwo Kyerematen this morning filed his nomination to contest the upcoming presidential primaries of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
He arrived at the party headquarters amidst spontaneous welcome by some party faithful’s and supporters who besieged the place.
His nomination was received by the General-Secretary of the party, Mr. Kwabena Agyei Agyepong who advised him to abide by the rules and guidelines for the presidential primaries election as stipulated by the party to ensure decorum and respect for our democratic values.
In his response, Mr. Alan John Kyerematen assured him of his abiding commitment to play by the rules of engagement and also to ensure a very clean and healthy campaign.
Mr. Alan Kyerematen noted that ‘the victory of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in 2016 will not come by chance and neither will it come with ease. It is therefore important for us to work in unity to activate the grass root structures of our party’.
He touched on the current happenings on the economy and stated that the Ghanaian economy is in crisis. He added that, Ghanaians must contribute to solving the ailing economy. However, it is the primary responsibility of the government to lead this country.
Mr. Alan Kyerematen therefore proposed for a by-partisan economic and reconstruction program to proffer realistic solutions to our national problems. He stressed that this reconstruction program must be tailored around private sector development and the creation of jobs for our people.
He stressed further that, government must reduce excessive borrowing, reduce the inflation rate in a long-run and also use the country’s international reserve to support our depreciating currency. He added, ‘The government must re-visit the industrial based program initiated by President John Kufuor and move away from importing commodities, and expand our industries to help the private sector create jobs and wealth’.
Mr. Alan Kyerematen thanked his supporters and urged all party members to come together to help the party win the 2016 general elections.
