Attorney-General Godfred Yeboah Dame has expressed his optimism regarding Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s potential to lead the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2024 election.
Mr. Dame cited Dr. Bawumia’s experience and intelligence as strong attributes that position him as a formidable contender to lead the party in its quest to maintain governance.
“Bawumia has the integrity, he has the intellect, he has the experience, and he has the vision to lead the NPP to victory in 2024 and to break the eight. He is the only candidate who can do it,” he said.
Mr. Dame praised the Vice President for his display of leadership qualities during the campaign and emphasized that Dr. Bawumia has conducted himself admirably in the political arena.
He encouraged all NPP members to unite behind Dr. Bawumia to maintain power in the next general elections.
Meanwhile, voting is ongoing across the 275 constituencies, where over 200,000 NPP delegates are expected to cast their vote to elect a new leader.
Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, MP for Assin Central Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, former Agriculture Minister Dr. Owusu Akoto Afriyie, and former MP for Asante Mampong, Francis Addai-Nimoh are the final contenders.
While various pollsters have tipped Vice President Dr. Bawumia as the favorite, the competition is expected to be fierce, particularly from Kennedy Agyapong.
On the ballot paper, the Assin Central MP occupies the top slot, followed by Dr. Bawumia in the second position, and Dr. Afriyie Akoto and Mr Addai-Nimoh in the third and fourth slots, respectively.
The outcome of this election will significantly influence the NPP’s strategy for the 2024 elections.
