Alan Cash spits fire…Says he won’t tolerate attacks on his supporters any longer

One of the flagbearer hopefuls of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr. Alan John Kwadwo Kyerematen has warned that he will no longer tolerate attacks on his supporters.

His warning came in the wake of an attack on his campaign coordinator in the North East region, Ali Zakaria during the August 26, NPP Super Delegates Conference held across the 16 regions.

The former Trades Minister made the comments when he visited Zakaria at the hospital where he is receiving treatment.

Ali Zakaria is alleged to have been assaulted by some supporters of Dr Mahamudu Bawumia after he attempted to prevent a delegate who publicly displayed his cast ballot.

Addressing the media after he paid a visit to Zakaria, Mr. Kyerematen who pulled only 95 votes out of the over 900 votes to placed third in Saturday’s conference described the attack at the Nalerigu Senior High School as a dent on the party’s image.

“I am not going to tolerate this kind of behaviour. It doesn’t make sense and when we cannot conduct ourselves as a family trying to select a leader in a peaceful and organised manner, how do we intend to be able to do the same kind of process when we have 200,000 plus people gathered?”

Frankly, I am very disturbed about what has happened. The party must not put a shine on what has happened.” He fumed.

The elections committee of the NPP on Tuesday, August 29, 2023, met with some flagbearer hopefuls to address some concerns they encountered during the conference.

The Spokesperson of the NPP Elections Committee, and Member of Parliament for Efutu Constituency in the Central region, Mr. Alexander Kwamena Afenyo Markin, also disclosed that the committee on Tuesday held positive discussions with flagbearer aspirant, Mr. Kennedy Akompreko Ohene Agyapong over his viral showdown comment during the special delegates’ conference.

“We had a very fruitful engagement. Some agents also came out with their reports on certain happenings, isolated cases where they had some difficulties, and they had an opportunity to give us a full report of what happened. We are going to meet some other members again on Thursday,” the Efutu lawmaker said this in an interview with the media.

Mr Afenyo-Markin added “We also had an opportunity to meet with one of the aspirants who made certain statements that went viral and had a positive engagement with him. And I must say that so far so good.”
