John Alan Kwadwo Kyeremanten, who suffered another crushing defeat at the hands of Nana Akufo-Addo in his bid to lead the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2016 General Elections, says any competitive meeting the two can be equated to an El-clasico in Ghanaian terms.
According to him, contests in the NPP between himself and Nana Addo, can be likened to the competitive matches between Accra Hearts of Oak and Kumasi Asante Kotoko.
Making light of his defeat as he delivered his concession address, Alan Cash, as he is affectionately called, in a rather cheerful mood said like matches between the two arch-rivals, irrespective of the scoreline, there was always something to cheer about by the fans.
He however quickly added he was unsure which of them represents the Porcupine Warriors or the Phobians.
In an open show of support and endorsement of Nana Addo?s candidature, Mr Kyeremanten pledged to ?stand solidly behind Nana Akufo-Addo so that in 2016 NPP can come back to power?.
?As you know, contests between Nana Akufo-Addo and Alan Kyeremanten can be likened to the competitive matches between Hearts and Kotoko. But i?m not sure who represents Kotoko and who represents Hearts. But you know, regardless of the scoreline between Kotoko and Hearts, we always make sure we give our fans a lot to cheer about?.so i would like all of us to stand solidly behind Nana Addo Dankwa to ensure that in 2016, NPP comes back to power,? he stated.
