The Vice President of Ghana, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has won the overwhelming support of members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to lead the party. The Member of Parliament for Yendi, Farouk Aliu Mahama, has stated that Dr. Bawumia’s hard work, innovation, and commitment to the party over the years have earned him the support of the rank and file of the NPP.

Aliu Mahama brushed aside suggestions that Dr. Bawumia’s northern background and his relatively short time in the party might hinder his chances of leading the NPP. He pointed out that Dr. Bawumia had been Vice President and had been nominated as a running mate four times running, which showed that he had the party’s backing. He also noted that Dr. Bawumia had played a crucial role in the NPP’s victories in the 2016 and 2020 elections.

The Yendi MP added that the NPP was a party that embraced competition, and while there were other contenders for the flagbearership, the majority of NPP delegates believed in Dr. Bawumia’s abilities and what he had done for the party. He described Dr. Bawumia as a brand name with marketability and acceptability, and he predicted that Dr. Bawumia would win 80 to 90% of the votes in the special delegates’ election and about 70% of the votes in the November elections.

Aliu Mahama emphasized that Dr. Bawumia was not someone who could be written off, given his contributions to the NPP and his acceptability among the grassroots. He noted that the NPP would send a strong message by electing Dr. Bawumia, proving to all that the party was truly one that served everyone regardless of ethnic and religious backgrounds, as long as they were competent.

For the most part, Aliu Mahama’s comments highlight Dr. Bawumia’s achievements and his standing within the NPP. They also underscore the party’s commitment to meritocracy, where competence is rewarded above any other consideration. It remains to be seen whether Dr. Bawumia will ultimately become the NPP’s flagbearer, but for now, it is clear that he has earned the support of the majority of the party’s members.
