Former Trade Minister Alan Kyeremanten has resigned from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to enable him to contest for the office of president as an independent presidential candidate in the 2024 elections.
He announced this on Monday in Accra at a press conference.
This makes it the second time he has resigned from the NPP after he first did so in 2007 but later returned.
Mr Kyerematen said that he has come to the realisation that his contributions are no longer needed in the party hence his resignation.
This followed the harsh treatment meted out to his supporters by the party, he said.
“Persons associated with me are treated with disdain and outright outcast,” Mr Kyerematen who placed third in the super delegates conference of the NPP held on August 26 said.
He accused the leadership of the NPP of skewing the internal elections in favour of one particular aspirant.
