Contrary to some reports, indications are that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) does not plan to expel members who move to support Alan Kyerematen.
During a press conference held in Accra on Tuesday, September 26, 2023, NPP General Secretary Justin Kodua Frimpong called on NPP supporters to be civil with Kyerematen and his supporters.
“We are pleading with the party people that this is not an issue that calls for verbal attacks. Let no one speak against Kyerematen and those who have left with him. In Ghana, we have something called freedom of association. He has gone on his own accord.”

Commenting on persons who supported Alan Kyerematen during the flagbearer race, the NPP General Secretary said they were still part of the party.
“We want to tell them that they are children of the party. We love them, and they are part of us,” Frimpong stated.
Kyerematen announced his resignation from the party on September 25, 2023, and said he was starting a movement as he contests for the presidency as an independent candidate.
Alan thanked for his service
The leadership of the NPP has thanked Kyerematen for his service to the party over the years.
However, the party said Alan's claim that one candidate was favoured in the presidential primary was false.

The party released a memo directing all chairpersons in the 47 Ashanti Region constituencies.
Kyerematen’s resignation from the NPP on Monday, September 25, 2023, prompted this decision.
