Hassan Ayariga, the founder of the All People’s Congress (APC), has criticised Alan Kyerematen over his Movement for Change vision, which Mr Kyerematen plans to champion if elected President as an independent candidate.
Mr Ayariga expressed the view that Mr Kyerematen, a former trade minister, is part of the problem facing the nation, as he was a member of the government that has led the country into its current challenges.
Mr Ayariga argued that Kyerematen's Movement for Change is more of a movement for self-interest rather than a genuine desire for positive change for the nation.
He suggested that Mr Kyerematen hasn't fundamentally changed and is merely attracting people to follow him while potentially destroying their political careers.
He mentioned in an interview on the Class Morning Show (CMS) on Class91.3FM that Kyerematen's move to create a movement of change is not credible, as he was part of the leadership that contributed to the current state of the nation.
“The person who created Movement for Change is among the persons that have messed up this country, he was among the leadership that has put us where we are and what movement is he talking about, a movement of self-interest, that is what I see, not a movement for change,” he told show host Korku Lumor.
“You are in a party and because you said you’re not treated fairly you jump out of the party and say you’ve formed a movement of change. Stay and became the leader of the party and introduce the movement of change [within] the NPP,” he added.
Kyerematen had resigned from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to contest the 2024 election as an independent candidate, aligning himself with the Movement for Change.
