Stop behaving like Konadu Rawlings after she lost NDC primaries – Ex-Sgt Akata Pore to Alan


A former member of the Provisional National Defence Council (PNDC), Sergeant Daniel Alolga Akata Pore, has expressed doubt regarding Alan Kyerematen’s ability to challenge the entrenched dominance of the NPP and the NDC in the political arena.

Mr Akata Pore criticized Alan’s decision to run independently, suggesting that had Alan succeeded in the New Patriotic Party primaries, he would not have opted for this path. To Akata Pore, Alan’s choice appears illogical.

He drew parallels between Alan’s move and that of former First Lady Naana Konadu Agyemang-Rawlings, who formed her own political party after losing in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) primaries some years back.

In an interview with JoyNews, when asked about the potential for a viable third-party option, considering figures like Alan Kyerematen aligning with other third forces such as Dr. Abu Sakara, Akata Pore expressed skepticism.

He suggested that Alan’s current stance contradicts his previous support for reinforcing the two-party system.

Mr Akata Pore implied that Alan’s motivations seem influenced by personal disappointment rather than a genuine desire for political reform.

“Do you see the option of a third party? Even with Kyerematen, formerly of the NPP, now rallying third forces like Dr. Abu Sakara and others, don’t you think that could be successful?”

Sergeant Akata Pore replied, “It’s unlikely that a third party will prevail. But you see, it is too rich coming from him because if he [Alan] had won the primaries, he wouldn’t be saying this. So for me, I don’t listen to him. And if anybody joins him, the person should know that I don’t listen to them.

“Because it doesn’t make sense that someone who wanted to entrench the two-party state is doing this because he did not win. It is a bit like [Konadu Agyemang] Rawlings forming her own party when she did not win the NDC primaries.”

Alan Kyerematen has announced his candidacy for the 2024 general elections as an independent, having departed from the NPP.
