A flagbearer aspirant of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr. Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen, has assured supporters of the party that under his tenure as president, two local contractors in every constituency would be empowered to execute local contacts instead of relying on expatriate construction firms all the time.
Speaking at Buem as part of his campaign tour of the Oti Region yesterday, Alan Kyerematen, also known as Alan Cash, said the idea behind his plans was to support the local economy, since the money paid to these contractors would, in most cases, remain in the constituency.
The former Trade and Industry Minister reiterated his desire to pay all constituency executives of the party when he is elected to lead the party. He, therefore, called on the delegates to choose a leader who would resonates with the people they were representing in their various electoral areas and polling stations.
He also urged the delegates to woo floating voters, as they played important and influential roles in determining the fortunes of the party at the national level. Alan Cash insisted that he was the best and only candidate, out of the 10 contestants, who can garner the votes needed to break the 8 in 2024.
He emphasised that since the primary was an internal party contest, it was important that all aspirants played the game fairly and refrained from insults and name-calling that could affect the fortunes of the party in future.
Kyerematen said he possessed the qualities to unite the party to work hard for victory in the national elections in 2024, and urged the delegates to vote for him.
The aspirant is expected to meet delegates from all constituencies on a zonal basis to end his tour of the Oti Region today.
