He said though the decision is a personal one, it will have an effect on the party.
Speaking to Aduanaba Kofi Asante Ennin on GhanAkoma on Akoma FM 87.9MHz in Kumasi, he said the party didn't expect Alan Kyerematen to resign despite the current happenings in the party.
His decision to resign from the NPP and also contest 2024 presidential election as an independent candidate has stirred mixed public reactions with some praising him and others not happy about his move for abandoning the NPP.
This is the second time he is taking such a decision after a similar one in 2008. Then, he accused the party leaders and some members of the party of harassing his supporters.
Reacting to the issue on Ghanakoma, Ing Francis Addai-Nimoh said he didn't expect Alan Kyerematen to defect from the NPP at this crucial time.
“He is my senior brother, [we] speak all the time but he didn't inform me of such a decision.
“This has come as a shock to me. I only heard it on [radio and tv] rather and other social media platforms,” he said.
“What my senior brother disclosed this week shocked me. It really shock me.
“No member of our great party will be happy that a bigwig like Hon Alan will resign,” he stated.
According to him, this is something every member of the NPP family won't be happy about.
Ing. Addai-Nimoh is one of the four candidates for the November 4 Presidential Primary of the NPP.
