The 2023 ‘Afrafranto’ Walk, led by Movement for Change leader Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen, came to an end on December 2 in Kumasi, Ashanti Region.
Thousands of Ghanaians enthusiastically participated in the walk, which had the theme “Let us Walk Together for Victory 2024,” to show their support for Mr. Kyerematen’s presidential candidacy.
The walk began at 6 a.m. at the Bekwai roundabout in Kumasi and featured a sea of people dressed in yellow, supporters and participants wearing clothing with the words “vote Alan.”
Participants in the stroll carried signs bearing sayings like ‘End of NDC-NPP Duopoly,’ ‘Alan for Youth,’ ‘GTP has 24 Hour Economy Already,’ and ‘Alan the People’s Choice.’
In his speech at the occasion, Mr. Kyerematen emphasized how urgent it is to establish a 24-hour economy.
He did, however, emphasize the necessity of first addressing the economy, stating that a faltering economy cannot support such an endeavor.
Before launching the massive 24-hour economy initiative, the former Trade and Industry Minister outlined his vision and emphasized his commitment to addressing economic challenges.
Mr. Kyerematen made it clear that improving the economy is not a sufficient requirement for the 24-hour economy initiative to succeed, but rather a necessary one.
He clarified that more steps will be necessary for the policy to successfully take root, even after the nation’s financial problems are resolved.
The leader of the Movement for Change listed his government’s top priorities in terms of industrialization, infrastructure development, information technology, and tourism.
He claimed that these actions would create the foundation for the 24-hour economy to be successfully implemented once he becomes president following the next general election.
