Yaa Naa Abukari II, the ruler of Dagbon, has encouraged Alan Kyerematen to put in a lot of effort to take over as the NPP’s head and win the 2024 presidential elections.
On Monday, February 20, 2023, the Yaa Naa paid him a visit at the Gbewa Palace in Yendi and said, “It’s your time to head the party and the country.
As part of his engagement trip with NPP executives and party members, the former minister for trade and industry is touring the Northern Region to discuss his plans with them for running as the party’s nominee for president in the 2024 elections.
The Yaa Naa praised the NPP stalwart’s work ethic and claimed that the nation has come to a point where his experience is required to save the economy.
The Yaa Naa continued, “Your first task as leader of this country will be to restore the economy so that the one cedi note can be used again. The one cedi note is important to our people.”
By the Grace of God and with the help of the people of Dagbon, Alan Kyerematen promised to revive the economy if Ghanaians elected him president in 2025. He praised the Sovereign of Dagbon for his kind words.
He pledged to build on the achievements of the current administration and speed up the expansion of agriculture by establishing agricultural projects throughout rural communities nationwide through the execution of his Great Transformational Plan (GTP).
A shift in government in 2025, according to Alan Kyerematen, could jeopardize the success of commendable initiatives like Agenda 111, the Free SHS, and 1D1F.
In order to guide the NPP to the historic task of “breaking the eight” in 2024, which will be a first in the 4th Republic, he asked the sage advice of the Yaa Naa to encourage NPP representatives in the area to do the right thing by choosing him as flagbearer.
The Yaa Naa presented Alan with a pure white smock, a hat in the colors of the NPP, a pure white ram, yams, and cola in recognition of his excellent record in government and his conviction that the shrewd politico would continue to serve the nation well as president.
In Dagbon, these are typically symbols of triumph.
Because of his track record of wealth and employment creation, the traditional region anticipates nothing less than success for the man known as “Alan Cash” in the forthcoming NPP presidential nominations and the ensuing general elections.
