Ghanaians on social media are reacting to the news of the former Trade Minister breaking away from the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP).

John Alan Kyerematen resigned from the party on Monday, September 25, and will contest the 2024 election as an independent presidential candidate.

The name of his new party is ‘Movement For Change,’ with the motto, ‘Ghana Will Rise Again.’

At the event in Accra, he explained that the decision “to contest as an Independent Candidate will not destroy the Party, but instead provide the Party an opportunity to participate in a Government of National Unity in the future, and avoid the risk of going into opposition with no dividends, in what arguably will be a difficult general election in 2024.”

This development has stoked conversation on social media.
