Presidential Staffer Dennis Miracles Aboagye has said that Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia is the one who has what it takes to win a third term( break the eight) for the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) because he embodies hope, progress and unity for the ordinary Ghanaian.
He stressed that Dr Bawumia is in a pole position to beat John Mahama, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) presidential candidate for the 2024 general elections.
Speaking in an interview on Bolgatanga-based A1 Radio Wednesday, Mr Aboagye expressed optimism that Dr Bawumia will win the presidential elections given the enormous successes he has chalked as Vice President of the country.
“We’re very clear in our minds that we want to win a third term. And we are not playing. Sometimes, people think when we say we are breaking the 8, we are playing. We are not playing…Dr. Bawumia is the one who can beat John Mahama. John Mahama knows it. Everyone knows it. The only person that they are worried about in our party is Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia. We are very clear. There is no contention in our party…It would be about what you promised and what you did.
Between Dr. Bawumia and former President Mahama, credibility is key. Sincerity is key. We have at least tasted both of them, and we know what both of them can do. What the people of Ghana are looking for is hope, and that is Dr. Bawumia,” he explained.
Dr Mahamudu Bawumia is considered a frontrunner in the flagbearership race of the NPP even as other formidable aspirants canvass votes across the country. He has had the endorsement of key members in the party, including Members of Parliament (MPs) and other stalwarts.
Former Trade Minister Alan Kyeremanten is expected to be his main contender for the position notwithstanding the progress being made by other aspirants such as Kennedy Ohene Agyepong and others.
