NPP Hates Northerners if Bawumia is not made Flagbearer – Bugri Naabu

If Dr. Bawumia is not made the flagbearer of the party then it means NPP does not value northerners.

Former Northern Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Daniel Bugri Naabu, has given a strong signal that a rejection of Vice President, Dr. Bawumia, in the upcoming flagbearership race will reinforce the perception that northerners in the party are only suitable for playing second fiddle.

In making a case for the candidature of the Vice President, he said the NPP traces its origins to Danquah-Busia-Dumbo, and it will only be fair that the Dumbo faction leads the party now since the current and previous leadership represented both Danquah and Busia origins.

Mr. Naabu, who is now the paramount chief of Namog Traditional Area in the Northern Region, however, said failure to follow the succession plan by electing Dr. Bawumia will reinforce perceptions that northerners in the party are only suitable for vice president positions.

NPP Hates Northerners if Bawumia is not made Flagbearer

“Nana Akufo-Addo has come to choose Mahamud Bawumia; he has also filed to be the flagbearer. If this time they don’t vote for him and the Akan reject voting, it means they hate northerners, that is simple! They only say we are together by mouth, but they don’t mean it! So we northerners are to learn sense this time. How many northerners have become presidents? Nothing,” he said.

He added in an exclusive interview with JoyNews that “now if Bawumia is rejected by the Ashantis, it means we are not together. Some of the MPs or former MPs have started saying that we northerners are good for Vice, so they are insulting us.

“So we don’t know how to become president, but only vice president?” I don’t think it is the best. I’m appealing to everybody to keep in mind that at the end of that day, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia will be voted.”
