Alan Supporters Accuse NPP of Bribing Members as Reports Claim 6,000 Defect to Party

The allegations come on the back of announcements that about 6000 members of Alan's Movement for Change have returned to the NPP

Supporters of Alan Kyerematen’s Movement for Change have accused the New Patriotic Party (NPP) of using bribery tactics to lure some of its youthful members back to the party.

In a statement on Monday, April 22, signed by the group’s convenor, Luther-King Junior, they say the ruling party has an agenda to undermine Alan Kyerematen – who was a party-founding member, but resigned last year citing unfair treatment from the party.

“The depth of intelligence of the NPP has to be questioned as they are celebrating the fact that they have used money to persuade poster sticking and noise making babies to join them. If the NPP think they have made any iota of progress, then indeed they must be a laughing stock because the babies they have claimed to pull with money, have zero influence at the gutter of our structures,” their statement said.

“It has become evidently clear that we made a mistake; a mistake that we humbly admit and are ready to work to ensure that its dire effect is reversed or averted. Since the February 7, 2024 speech by the flagbearer of the NPP, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, we have been asking ourselves questions that bother on the future of this country and the very Ghana that we young people want,” Kumi is quoted by Citi News to have said at a press conference today.
