He announced this on Monday, September 25 in Accra at a press conference.

This makes it the second time he is resigning from the NPP after he first did so in 2007 but later returned.

Mr Kyerematen said that he had come to the realisation that his contributions were no longer needed in the party hence his resignation.

He said this followed the harsh treatment meted out to his supporters by the party.

He accused the leadership of the NPP of skewing the internal elections in favour of one particular aspirant.

Yes, it is a good step that he has taken. All the party executives have shown their support for one candidate whom they are all campaigning for. We will all support you Alan.
