2024 polls: They know I’ll beat Mahama in the north ~ Dr. Bawumia

Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has said he will wallop former President John Mahama in the northern part of Ghana should the two of them face off in the 2024 polls.

Dr Bawumia, who is running for the flag bearer race of the governing New Patriotic Party, told delegates in the Tema West constituency in the Greater Accra Region: “They know we will break the 8, and they know that John Mahama cannot take me on in the North, and they know that I will beat him in the North and this is why they don’t want me to be the flag bearer.”

A few weeks ago, Dr Bawumia said he will win the flag bearer race set for November 2023.

He said after scaling that first hurdle, he would go on to win the 2024 presidential election and then become the next president of Ghana after his boss Nana Akufo-Addo.

At a meeting with NPP supporters in Hohoe at the weekend, Dr Bawumia said: “I want you to know that I appreciate your support”. “We are going to break the 8”, he said. 

“First of all, we are going to file for the flagbearership [race], which I’m going to do, win the flagbearership, break the 8, and go to Jubilee House”. 

“That is what I’m going to do”, Dr Bawumia said.

Apart from Dr Bawumia, the other aspirants are former trades minister Alan Kyerematen, Assin Central MP Kennedy Agyapong, Essikado-Ketan MP Joe Ghartey and the party’s former general secretary Kwabena Agyepong.

The rest are former energy minister Boakye Agyarko, former minister of agriculture Owusu Afriyie Akoto, former minister of regional cooperation and NEPAD Kofi Konadu Apraku and former Mampong MP Francis Addai-Nimoh.
