Former New Patriotic Party presidential candidate Mr Alan John Kwadwo Kyerematen has established the MOVEMENT FOR CHANGE to contest political power.
The Monarch Butterfly serves as the movement’s brand icon and stands for political reform, transformation, optimism, and happiness.
At a press conference to announce his resignation and decision to run as an independent candidate in the general elections of 2024, Mr Kyerematen made this information public.
Mr. Kyerematen said, “It also communicates strength, endurance, spirituality, and trust, which are key traits that I cherish as a Political Leader.
He said that the movement’s catchphrase was “Ghana Will Rise Again,” which stands for optimism for Ghana’s future.
According to him, out of the over 17 million Ghanaians who had registered to vote in the general election of 2020, over 9.4 million of them—or 55% of all voters—were young people aged 18 to 35. They would lead and power the new movement.
The youth, he claimed, were unquestionably seen as the nation’s future, despite being the most vulnerable group in our society.
According to Mr. Kyerematen, he was utilising the opportunity to introduce himself to Ghanaians and ask for their support in becoming the country’s next president.
“I believe, with unwavering conviction, that I am the only leader who, with unmatched integrity, can guarantee the economic and industrial transformation of Ghana, the restoration of confidence in political leadership, and the unification of an increasingly divided nation,” he added.
He said that as a leader, his key selling points were ACTION, VISION, COMPETENCE, and INTEGRITY.
