As the New Patriotic Party (NPP) gears up for the 2024 Presidential and Parliamentary Elections, Frank Annoh-Dompreh, MP for Nsawam-Adoagyiri and Majority Chief Whip, revealed that about 80% of NPP MPs support Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s bid to become the party’s flagbearer.
Dr. Bawumia is the party’s best bet for the upcoming elections, according to Mr. Annoh Dompreh, despite the fact that other candidates like Alan Kyeremanten and Kwabena Agyapong are strong contenders and have excellently served the party. This is because of the exceptional qualities and advantages he brings to the party in terms of his appeal to the Christian community and minority tribes.
Bawumia Is NPP’s Best Bet To Break The 8
“…Particularly if you consider the similar strengths that Dr. Bawumia possesses: he is a well-liked Muslim who crosses all religious lines; he is widely accepted by the Christian community; and he is someone who appeals to the so-called minority tribes who, for a long time in our body politic, and I’m emphasizing the history, have more or less been a challenge for us as a tradition, as a party. And all the propaganda and labels that our party has received.
Consequently, I think that strategically, if the party is being strategic, we are seeking to do something that hasn’t been done in our body politic for a very long time…and for once, if this country can break the ice of eight-year rule sustainable leadership, it can continue the good works that the previous administration has started. In an interview with Metro TV last Saturday, he stated, “I am consumed by that desire to succeed.
Given that Dr. Bawumia is widely seen as the front-runner in the campaign for the party’s flagbearership, Mr. Annor Dompreh’s support of Dr. Bawumia as majority chief whip is a significant victory for the Bawumia camp within the party.
A significant number of party members, including MPs from the Ashanti Region, a bastion of the NPP and the home region of his leading rival Alan Kyeremanten, have already endorsed Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
