Over 6,000 defectors from Alan Kyerematen’s Movement return to NPP

More than six thousand supporters of Independent Presidential Candidate Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen, of the faltering Movement for Change, have returned to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and announced their intention to support Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia for the position of president of the nation.

The group under Kofi Adjei’s leadership claimed during a news conference that their choice to rejoin the NPP is a reflection of their strong devotion to Ghana’s future and the platform recently put forth by Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the party’s presidential candidate.

He added that a few months ago, motivated by Alan Kyerematen’s leadership, he and other committed members switched to the Movement for Change.

“However, this journey has granted us profound insights and a clearer understanding of the political landscape of Ghana, the vision and leadership styles of all the Presidential aspirants for the 2024 Elections. It has become evident that we made a mistake. A mistake that we humbly admit and ready to work to ensure its dire effect on the country is averted,” he noted in the statement.


He clarified that ever since Dr. Bawumia, the NPP flagbearer, gave a speech on February 7, 2024, they have been asking themselves concerns about the country’s and Ghana’s future, issues that they want to see resolved for themselves as young people.

He said, “It has become unarguably clear, that amongst all the Political Leaders, Dr. Bawumia has so far been the one who has clearly articulated the Ghana story, where we have come from, what we have been able to achieve so far, the challenges therein, admitted to the shortfalls and most importantly has communicated his solutions to the challenges confronting us as a country. Even more inspiring is his ability to move the entire nation to visualize the Ghana he dreams. His bold solutions as elaborated on in his speech enables every citizen to visualize the future he wants for all of us and it is one that as young people, we believe we want to be part of.”
