On Wednesday 24th March, 2021 the office of the Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia issued an official letter to dissociate himself from all the brouhaha about his interest to contest the NPP Primaries and eventually become the party’s flag-bearer in 2024 General Elections.
In the letter which was written by Gideon Boako (Ph.D) ,he made it clear that the only thing Bawumia is interested in is to “remain focused on assisting His Excellency the President in the execution of his agenda to transform Ghana’’.
This comes after some people believed to be from the NDC have been using the Vice President’s name and pictures to design campaign posters and distribute printed copies nationwide. This story has been confirmed by endorsement of Bawumia’s candidature by certain big wigs in the NDC including Inusah Fuseini among others.
Another person who has been fueling the Vice President’s interest in the flagbeararship race of the NPP is former president Mahama, who obviously considers the respected Veep to be an easy candidate to beat for he (Mahama’s) second chance of becoming president of Ghana again.
Some social commentators have said that, the Vice president was enjoying the spotlight and wouldn’t have mind but for the recent intervention of the NPP National Chairman and other executives of the NPP who believe the needless banter which is building up between Hon. Joe Ghartey, Hon. Alan Kyeremateng and Hon. Francis Addai Nimoh (just to mention a few); is not healthy for the business of government.
The eagle eye is monitoring any further communication from the office of the Vice President and will not hesistate to update our readers should anything come up.
