Trade and Industry Minister, Alan John Kwadwo Kyerematen, has made a donation to the Volta Regional branch of the New Patriotic Party, NPP, at a sod-cutting ceremony for the building of an ultra-modern party office in Ho, the regional capital.
Alan Kyerematen, who is a stalwart and a founding member of the NPP, and also considered by some as the ‘darling boy’ of the party in the region, made a cash donation of GHS 20,000 in addition to 1,000 bags of cement.
Some party faithful who were present and could not hide their happiness and appreciation for the patriotic gesture by Alan Kyerematen, kept shouting ‘jobs for the people, cash for the people’, ‘time aso ooo time aso’ among others.
The trade minister has a background in economics, he’s a lawyer, as well as a Trade Development Expert of international repute.
Present at the sod-cutting ceremony were the National Chairman of the NPP, Mr. Freddie Blay, as guest of honour, the National Youth Organizer, Nana Boakye, Mr. Fred Oware, former Volta Regional Chairman, Mr. Kenwood, Volta Regional executives, executives of all constituencies in the region, and party members and sympathizers.
In the 2020 general elections, the New Patriotic Party performed creditably in the Volta Region by way of increasing its total votes and winning the Hohoe parliamentary seat.
It is expected that the new regional office complex will enhance the party’s activities and result in better performance in the region going into election 2024.
