Insist on Your Right to Education

Uneducated citizenry is like a pitch any game can be played on it. Illiteracy is what has given the politicians in Ghana the chance to fool so many people for so a long a time.

Alan supporters condemn formation of new party

We would throw our weight behind Nana Akuffo-Addo and do whatever we can to help him recapture power from NDC

Supporters of Mr Alan Kyeremateng, a leading member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), have condemned the formation of the United Front Party (UFP) in Ashanti Region.

The supporters, who are in the Western Region, claimed that the UFP was targeting those who supported Mr Kyeremateng in his bid to win the NPP flagbearership.

These are contained in a statement read by Mr Charles Larbi Boateng, spokesperson of supporters of Mr Kyeremateng during a press conference at Takoradi on Monday.

Mr Boateng said that followers of Mr Kyeremateng in the Western Region had nothing to do with the newly formed party and they had therefore distanced themselves from its activities.

He said ”We of the Alan Camp in the Western Region want to state categorically that we have nothing whatsoever to do with the UFP and just as Alan has distanced himself from this new party, we also do same”.

Mr Boateng said that information gathered from Ashanti Region indicated that the UFP intended to storm the Sekondi-Takoradi Metropolis with followers of Mr Kyeremateng as its target.

He said this would not be successful since “we of Alan camp in the Western Region have decided that we would throw our weight behind Nana Akuffo-Addo, NPP flagbearer, and do whatever we can within our power to help him recapture power from the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

Mr Boateng said “The NPP has elected a flagbearer for the 2012 General Elections and the process that was adopted in doing so is an innovation that has never happened anywhere in Africa”.

He stressed that the NPP congress absolutely and unequivocally endorsed Nana Akuffo-Addo as the NPP flagbearer, alleging that the NDC was behind the formation of the new party to dismantle the united front of the NPP.

He appealed to NPP supporters who might have supported the formation of the UFP to rescind their decision and return to the NPP so that their grievances, whether real or illusive, could be laid bare for prompt action.
