Alhaji Toyiba Mahama, a patron of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Upper West Region has argued that Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia is the rightful person to lead the NPP as flagbearer into the 2024 General Elections.
According to Alhaji Mahama, the Vice President is the best candidate to lead the party given the prevailing times and circumstances. He is of the view that all the odds are in favour of Dr Bawumia taking charge of the party as it seeks to win a third straight term to govern the country.
“As our party goes through the task of electing a Presidential Candidate to lead us into the 2024 Elections, the material circumstances surrounding the party and government show clearly that H.E Dr Mahamudu Bawumia is best placed among the rest as far as winning the 2024 elections and transforming Ghana is concerned.
Having sacrificed his time, youth and expertise for the party since 2008 as well as serving diligently in the office of Vice President since 2017, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has built a perfect track record in the administration and governance space that continues to draw huge commendations and acclamation from wide-ranging, personalities, organisations and agencies attesting to his competence, passion and commitment,” he said in a press release.
He conceded that even though the other nine aspirants in the flagbearership race are good material, it is Dr Bawumia who is capable of winning political power for the party in the 2024 General Elections.
“Without taking anything away from his contenders, I am of the strong opinion and conviction that he has what it takes to tilt the tide in favour of the New Patriotic Party considering the high stakes and dynamics ahead of the crucial 2024 elections in which we are seeking to go beyond the eight-year political cycle usually experienced since 1992
As a committed Patron of the NPP in the Upper West Region, it is appropriate to call on the rank and file of the New Patriotic Party especially the discerning delegates to rally round and propel Dr Mahamudu Bawumia to victory in the upcoming primaries to put the party in a pole position to break the eight in 2024,” he concluded.
Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia faces nine other aspirants for the flagbearer position of the party. But he has been consistently ranked ahead of the rest with many high profile NPP members openly endorsing him. His closest contender Alan Kyeremanten has also had considerable support but Dr Bawumia appears to be in the lead as the party goes for the Special Delegates Conference on August 26, 2023.
