The Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia received a landslide vote, according to the NPP’s Ashanti Regional Chairman.
Their goal, according to Chairman Wontumi, also known as Bernard Antwi Boasiako, is to select a candidate who would defeat the eight and keep the NPP in power.
Out of the 121 legitimate ballots cast, Dr. Bawumia received 97 votes, whereas Alan Kyerematen received just 10 votes in his home area.
Given Mr. Kyerematen’s influence, some political analysts had projected a 50-50 split of the votes in the NPP stronghold.
However, special delegates in the area overwhelmingly supported the Vice President, whom they regarded as the most qualified candidate to break the eight.
Chairman Wontumi claimed they had “political agape love” for the Vice President, who they feel is the greatest option for the party in 2024, in an interview on Adom FM’s morning show, Dwaso Nsem, on Monday.
He claims that delegates in the Ashanti area will cast their votes based on the party’s interests rather than on the basis of tribe.
The Ashanti Regional Chairman said that the results of the poll on August 26 served as a practice run for the delegates meeting on November 4.
“I support Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia because I have the belief that he is the only one who can beat John Mahama and help us break the eight,” he added.
