The Member of Parliament for Asokwa, Madam Patricia Appiagyei says the only flag-bearer aspirant in the NPP who exudes hope for the youth of the country is Mr John ALAN Kwadwo Kyerematen.

She noted that during the flag-bearer’s days as Minister, starch, sugar, textiles and other industrial jobs were created.
“In Alan Kyerematen the youth of Ghana have hopes of securing jobs after school because they have been witnesses to many jobs he created as Trades MInister including the over 192 one district one factory module across the 16 regions of Ghana”, Madam Appiagyei stated.
Madam Appiagyei, who is a third term MP for Asokwa rallied the youth of the country to support the bid of Mr Kyerematen.

Mr Michael Adusei, Subin Constituency Chairman addressing the delegates asked them to analyse the message of Mr Kyerematen and make a decision out of same.
