The value is the same – NPP responds to ‘fears’ over Alan, Abu Sakara merger

New Patriotic Party (NPP) contends that the coalition between the Movement for Change (M4C) and the National Interest Movement (NIM) will have minimal impact on their electoral prospects in the December 2024 elections.

Deputy General Secretary of the party, Haruna Mohammed, argues that each party would have garnered votes independently, rendering the alliance inconsequential.

Speaking on Joy FM’s Top Story on April 5, he said, “Come to think about it, these parties that are coming together would have contested the elections anyway. They would have contested in their own strength and they would have garnered the same votes as they were going to get.

“It is just like if you have 2+2+2 that is 6, if you decide to separate all the two to stand alone, it doesn’t change the numbers. If they come together, it is going to still give them the numbers that they would have gotten in the larger political discourse in terms of the contest.”

Haruna’s remarks came after a joint statement on April 4 by M4C’s Alan Kyerematen and NIM’s Dr. Abu Sakara Foster, announcing the formation of the Alliance for Revolutionary Change (ARC) following successful negotiations with various political factions.

The ARC aims to challenge the traditional dominance of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the NPP.

However, Haruna emphasised that while the NPP wasn’t overly concerned about the potential impact of this alliance on their electoral prospects, they remained committed to rallying these supporters for their cause.

Their goal is to secure political power in the upcoming 2024 elections.

“Notwithstanding that, we are not going to leave any stone unturned in terms of having engagement and making sure that we are able to get some of the smaller political parties to our side,” he said.
