A leading member of Alan Kojo Kyeremanteng campaign team in the northern region, Dawuda Jentuma has dispelled notion that there is tension in the camp over who coordinates the campaign activities of the New Patriotic Party NPP flagbearer hopeful for the 2024.
In a Facebook post following the rumours of someone being relieved of his position, Mr. Dawuda wrote indicating that there has not been appointment, let alone for someone to be sacked from holding same.
“Hon Alan John Kwadwo Kyerematen has NOT appointed anybody as a NORTHERN REGIONAL CAMPAIGN CORDINATOR Disregard all the lies”, he wrote yesterday, November 14.
Reacting to the statement, Mohammed Abdul Rauf, who identified himself as a special assistant to the beleaguered Coordinator, Mr. Ismael Yahuza said it was entirely untrue, adding that his is still at post.
“Our attention has been drawn to a piece of information circulating on various social media handles; misleading the general public and leveling some falsehood against the person of Hon. Ishmael Yahuza. The general public are by this circular entreated to disregarded such blatant lies and falsehood”, he wrote.
“Hon. Yahuza is still the Northern Regional Coordinator for Hon. Alan John Kwadwo Kyeremanten and we can emphatically state for the records that our regional coordinator never took nor received the alleged amount of Ghc100,000 from Hon. Alan John Kwadwo Kyerematen”, he added.
The special aide further stated that everything regarding finance, is by the efforts of Mr. Ismael Yahuza, and is done on behalf of the candidate to be.
“We state unequivocally that all activities and initiatives organized by the regional coordinator (Hon. Ishmael Yahuza) thus far, are done for and on behalf of Hon. Alan Kyeremanten. All of such programs and activities are solely funded by Hon. Ishmael”, Mr. Rauf disclosed.
“Isn’t it ridiculous and preposterous a claim that some campaign funds are misappropriated when the party is yet to officially open for a contest of Presidential candidacy and Hon. Alan Kyeremanten is yet to officially inaugurate the full structure of his campaign?”, he asked.
