A former spokesperson for Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen’s campaign, Catherine Afeku, has endorsed Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia in the New Patriotic Party (NPP) presidential primary.

“I’ve talked to the elders and thought about it in my sleep. Yes, I am serving the party, but I must make a choice, and I am throwing my support, energy, talent, and everything to Dr. Bawumia,” she declared on Adom FM yesterday.

It comes after Mr. Kyerematen, a flagbearer hopeful of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), withdrew from the race to become presidential candidate of the party.

He cited intimidation of his supporters at the recent Super Delegates’ Conference, among other things as his reasons.

According to him, after closely analysing the outcomes of the said elections, it became evident to him from events preceding, during, and following the elections that the Special Delegates’ Conference was purposefully and tactically skewed in favour of one particular aspirant.

Alan’s decision has received mixed reactions, with some people accusing him of betraying his supporters.

When asked about her take on the withdrawal of Alan from the race, Afeku said, “He issued a statement, and we all know what he said, and I respect that. I have to focus on winning back the Ajomoro seat for the NPP. I was disappointed, but I have moved on, and he [Alan] has given us his blessings,” she stated.

Meanwhile, the Deputy Director of Communications for the Alan 4 President (A4P) Campaign, Richard Nyamah, has formally announced his resignation from the role.

He said Alan’s withdrawal from the presidential primary of the NPP rendered his role redundant and ineffective.

He added, “As a result, I am by this statement informing the public of my intention to refocus all my efforts henceforth, on my campaign to become the Parliamentary Candidate of the NPP in Kpandai to ensure we recapture the seat from the NDC and help NPP break the eight.”

He thanked Mr. Kyerematen for the opportunity to have served him and the party and wished him well.
