The permutations of the coming general elections in Ghana are getting more interesting. Some are already quaking in their shoes.

Alan Kyerematen who resigned his ministerial job and broke ranks with the governing New Patriotic Party, NPP, appears to be a high flier in the Ashanti region, incidentally the stronghold of the NPP.

Alan, who hails from the region on Saturday December 2 led a million man march to shake the capital, Kumasi. Obviously, the party to worry about this is the NPP which badly needs the big Ashanti vote to make an impact in the presidential election.

The yellow colours of the Movement for Change led by Alan is well assimilated by Ashantis who consider it symbolic of gold, the mineral which saturates the region.

Alan was accompanied by traditional figures to suggest his party is home-made. Ironically, Alan latched onto “the 24-hour economy” being propagated by the larger opposition, the National Democratic Congress, NDC.

He fired a salvo at the sitting Vice President Alhaji Dr Mahamudu Bawumia by saying his dissonance with the John Mahama mantra shows a certain lack of understanding of the reality of the Ghanaian.

The Vice President is yet to swing into full action on the campaign trail as state duties compete for attention. However, as soon as he steps into the fray he would have been sandwiched by tough customers, also eyeing the much cherished Ghanaian presidency.
