Rev. Christian Kwabena Andrews, also known as Osofo Kyiri Abosom, the founder and leader of the Ghana Union Movement, has recommended Ghanaians to reject Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen as a presidential candidate because he lacks vision and provides no hope for the country.
The founder and general overseer of the Life Assembly Worship Centre claims that while the Akufo-Addo-led administration chose Alan Kyerematen as Minister of Trade and Industry, he underperformed and contributed to the economic crisis, hence Ghanaians should disregard him.
“There’s no hope in Alan Kyerematen for Ghana. Because I, Osofo Kyiri Abosom, my hope is to see a better Ghana someday, so, I have established one, two, or three things to help Ghanaians.
“Since Alan Kyerematen entered politics in Ghana, he should show us how many factories or jobs he has opened. The sole factory that was supposed to supply us with sugar and save us the enormous sum of money we spent on sugar imports was the Komenda Sugar factory. When he joined the government, he oversaw its operations as a Trade and Industry Minister, but he couldn’t manage the factory and collapsed it.
“If he is having any idea, then he should have been able to manage the factory as a minister, but he was unable to do so and rather suggested to Akuffo-Addo that the factory be sold to foreigners.
So, if he had any ideas, he might have utilized them to support Akufo Addo’s administration, the man claimed. Instead, he merely follows the opinions of others.
Speaking in an interview for Peace FM’s midday news on January 16, 2023, the man of God added that Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen’s leadership was responsible for the collapse of the Komenda Sugar factory; as such, if he has the ideas he claims to have and is running for president, he should have used those ideas to support Nana-Addo to prevent the country from getting into its current mess, as doing so will lead the country astray.
