Dr. Bawumia x Mahama
Member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) US Cincinnati Ohio Chapter, Mr Owusu Afriyie has said the party should not make any attempt to bring on Dr Mahamadu Bawumia as a flagbearer to face the NDC hopeful presidential candidate, Mr John Dramani Mahama.
According to him, should the party make any mistake in stagging Dr Bawumia for the impending 2024 elections, Mahama will totally triumph over him.
Speaking to NewstimesGh.com in an interview, Mr Owusu Afriyie noted that members of the NPP can not afford to go in opposition in 2024 therefore it is necessary to choose a competent person like Allan Kyerematen to lead the party.
“We don’t want the party to go to opposition.We have to consider alot of things.The only candidate who can defeat Mahama is Allan Kyerematen.”
“We need a competent person who will develop the nation and move the NPP party forward after Akufo-Addo’s reign, and there’s nobody either than Allan,” the assertion of Mr Owusu Afriyie.
He stated again that, Allan’s massive contribution towards Nana Addo’s administration as the trade Minister clearly shows that he is ready to lead NPP and Ghana as a whole.
The staunch NPP member further declared that “President Akufo-Addo’s legacy must be sustained because if NPP bring on Bawumia, the party will loose and this will retard the smooth development of the nation since NDC will pull the country’s resources down.”
As a result NPP should look at a candidate who can handle the nation very well just like Akufo-Addo in order for the party to “win solidly in the 2024 general elections.”
He said Dr Bawumia should stay back and give his support to Allan Kyerematen for the progress of NPP and Ghana as a whole.
Mr Owusu Afriyie emphatically stated that Allan Kyerematen he is well known all over the globe and he is the only candidate who can defeat John Dramani Mahama.
