The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has accepted Alan Kyerematen’s decision to withdraw from the party’s presidential primaries.
The General Secretary of the party, Justin Kodua Frimpong, in a press statement issued on Wednesday, September 6, said the issues Mr Kyerematen raised in his resignation letter will be investigated thoroughly and adequate sanctions meted out to anyone found culpable.
“We wish to reassure all stakeholders and the general public that the reports of the aforementioned committee will be made readily available and persons who may be found culpable of any wrongdoing will be held accountable.”
Alan Kyerematen on Tuesday evening announced his withdrawal from the NPP’s flagbearer race citing several reasons.
He mentioned intimidation, and violence against a member of his campaign team and claimed that the party strategically organised the super delegates conference to favour one candidate over the others as some of the reasons for his decision.
The party stated that the Elections Committee and the Disciplinary Committee have “initiated comprehensive investigations into all reported incidents of violations and infractions” that are alleged to have occurred in the super delegates election
