The New Patriotic Party (NPP) delegates have been urged to vote overwhelmingly for vice president Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia to become the party’s leader.
The party’s most formidable rival, John Dramani Mahama, is the greatest candidate to beat him, according to Dr. Bawumia.
He claims that having defeated the past president twice, he will be able to defeat him once more in the 2024 elections, enabling the party to “break the 8.”
As a result, the Vice President pushed the delegates to support him heavily in the primary elections.
He argued that he is the most suitable opponent for the NDC flagbearer.
“As we go for the presidential primaries we need someone who can help us retain. We need a selfless leader to lead the party and not a richer man. We need someone who has humility. We need someone who has a track record. We need someone who has the temperament. We need someone who has innovative ideas and has tolerance for everyone.
“If you look at all of us the 10 aspirants, I have the political experience in campaigning and winning elections against John Mahama.
“I have beaten him twice already and I know how to defeat him again in the 2024 elections.”
All 10 candidates running to be the New Patriotic Party’s presidential nominee in the 2024 elections have already been approved by the vetting committee for the presidential primary.
The candidates are: Dr. Bawumia, Boakye Kyerematen Agyarko, Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen, Kwadwo Poku, and Kwabena Agyei Agyapong.
The remaining individuals are Joe Ghartey, Francis Addai-Nimoh, Kofi Konadu Apraku, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, and Dr. Owusu Akoto Afriyie.
The NPP’s general secretary, Justin Kodua Frimpong, made the announcement in a statement.
In accordance with Article 10(3) of the NPP Constitution, the Vetting Committee presented its report to the National Council of the NPP on Monday, July 10, 2023, according to Mr. Kodua’s statement.
