The Minister of Trade and Industry, Alan Kyerematen popularly called ‘Alan Cash’ has promised to fund the entire cost involved in the printing of the albums for the upcoming New Patriotic Party (NPP) National Congress.
The NPP’s National Congress is scheduled for 2023.
Mr. Kyerematen explained that his decision to fund the printing of the album of the presidential and parliamentary primaries in all the 276 constituencies is to help the party conduct the election successfully.
The presidential hopeful made this assurance when he along with some big wigs of the party paid a visit to the party’s Executives in Accra over the weekend.

To this end, I am going to fund the entire printing cost of all 275 constituency delegates’ albums. It is to help the party conduct the election as a patriot myself. A free and fair election will trickle down to the average voter since they won’t feel manipulated or machinated,” he said.
