Former Constituency Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) at New Juaben North, Kwadwo Boateng Agyemang, says the symbol for Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen’s new Movement for Change, which is a Monarch Butterfly is not encouraging and does not give hope to the people.
Downhearted Presidential Hopeful of New Patriotic Party (NPP), Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen announced his resignation from the party with immediate effect and made it known his bid to contest as an independent candidate for the 2024 presidential election.
Announcing his exit, Alan complained about supposed divisiveness in the NPP and alleged hostile attacks on himself and his supporters for more than a decade now.
He also claimed the party has been “hijacked by a selected group of Party leaders and elders, and government appointees behind the curtain power brokers”.
He outdoored his new Movement, ‘Movement for Change’ with a Monarch Butterfly as his brand logo.

Speaking on Atinka TV’s morning show, Ghana Nie with Nana Yaw Fianko, Kwadwo Boateng Agyemang opined that the lifespan of the butterfly was very short which signifies that there was no hope for the people.
He suggested that Alan could have used an eagle to give the people hope.
“I do not know whether he rushed to it or because he is handsome and the butterfly is also beautiful, he looked at it and said this will fit him and chose it but ask yourself, what is the lifespan of a butterfly? What hope are you giving to the people?” he said.
He continued that,”You should have given the hope and dynamism to the youth you said you will lead. You should have brought an Eagle, it would have given hope because the eagle flies very high, collects things from the ground and sends it up, but you have gone to pick a butterfly.”
Meanwhile, Kwadwo Boateng Agyemang said the NPP will not drag this whole issue, urging the people of the party to unite towards the task ahead.
He also said the NPP must go into the 2024 election with the idea that thy are coming for power as if they were in opposition.
