Spokesperson Confirms Bawumia’s Intention to Contest for NPP Flagbearership

According to Gideon Boako, spokesperson for Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia, Bawumia intends to contest in the New Patriotic Party’s presidential flagbearership race, with the aim of becoming the party’s candidate in the 2024 elections and potentially taking over as president in January 2025. Boako confirmed Bawumia’s interest in becoming a potential flagbearer of the NPP on Adom TV’s Badwam show on February 15, using the Arabic phrase “insha Allah,” which means “if it is the will of God.” However, Bawumia has yet to officially declare his intention to contest in the party primary, the date of which has not yet been announced.

Boako also stated that Bawumia is likely to campaign on the achievements of the current Akufo-Addo government, in which he has been heavily involved, and the areas where the government has fallen short. He dismissed claims that Bawumia was a major cause of the country’s economic challenges and stated that certain individuals within the party who had criticized Bawumia would eventually come to appreciate his love and commitment to the party.

Other potential contenders for the NPP flagbearership include Alan Kyerematen, former Trade and Industry Minister, and Kennedy Agyapong, the Assin Central Member of Parliament
