Mr. John Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen, who would contest the 2024 elections as an independent presidential candidate, says he would engage politicians and non-politicians alike in running his government.
The Founder of the Movement for Change said an independent candidate as president was the best the country could have.
Mr. Kyerematen told listeners of TV3’s New Day in an exclusive interview with Berla Mundi, the host, that he would engage the New Patriotic Party (NPP), National Democratic Congress (NDC), Convention Peoples Party (CPP) and a larger number of experienced and skilled professionals to deliver a National Unity policy.
According to the former Minister of Trade, his presidential bid was influenced by his ambition as an agent of change and transformation since being in the Presidency gives one the best opportunity to bring about the desired change.
Going independent means he would be dealing directly with over 5.5 million voters and floating voters who identified with his Great Transformational Plan (GTP), he told the TV host on Wednesday.
He said he was in politics because he wanted to serve the people of Ghana, and that he had proved his worth under two NPP administrations.
He said Ghana needed a new transformational leader and not another political party, hence, the Movement for Change, which could be anchored on moving Ghana beyond the duopoly of NDC and NPP towards a more united government, under which the governance structure would focus on one national agenda.
Mr. Kyerematen said central to his transformational agenda was the GTP and behavioural change of Ghanaians towards productivity against attitude to work, lack of discipline and disrespect for rule of law and arrogance of power which are counterproductive.
He said he was seeking the support of Ghanaians to execute his Transformational Agenda, which comes in 15 different components, including agricultural and industrial revolution and energy security.
Mr. Kyerematen believes Ghanaians would make him the president, because he had what it took to move Ghana forward on the wings of the Butterfly, which symbolised change, hope and positivity aligned to the transformational process.
He urged Ghanaians to read the GTP and appreciate his plan to change Ghana.
Mr. Alan Kyerematen has, since September 25, 2023, resigned as a member of the NPP, having earlier withdrawn his candidacy as a presidential hopeful of the party.
