In the New Patriotic Party (NPP) presidential primaries, Catherine Afeku, a former spokesperson for Alan Kyerematen’s campaign, has endorsed Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
On Monday’s Dwaso Nsem morning program on Adom FM, she made her choice public.
According to the previous minister of tourism, the choice was made after much deliberation and introspection.
“I have to choose a candidate in this election, and I have decided to throw my support, energy, personality, and talent behind Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia. The party must stay in power, and any alternative than Bawumia will be dangerous,” she declared.
This occurs shortly after Mr. Kyerematen declared his intention to boycott the elections set for November 4, 2023.
The former trade minister alleged prejudice against the party’s leadership in a formal declaration, among other things.
The choice drew mixed reviews and accusations that Alan had betrayed his followers. His detractors base their argument on the fact that he left the NPP in 2007.
The former Evalue Ajomoro Gwira Member of Parliament declined to speak when program presenter Chief Jerry Forson questioned her opinion on the withdrawal.
She claims that she respects Mr. Kyerematen’s choice.
To win the parliamentary primary and retake the Evalue Ajomoro Gwira seat for the NPP in the general elections of 2024, according to Madam Afeku, is her current objective.
“He issued a statement, and we all know what he said, and I respect that. I have to focus on winning back the Ajomoro seat for the NPP. I was disappointed, but I have moved on, and he [Alan] has given us his blessings,” she stated.
