Front runner in the New Patriotic Party (NPP) flag bearer race, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia is receiving more endorsements as the party gets closer to its special delegates congress .
In the Eastern Region where the Vice President is currently campaigning, key party leaders have thrown their weight behind his candidacy. Latest to throw their support are the Member of Parliament (MP) for Akuapem South, O.B. Amoah, and the MP for Abuakwa South, Samuel Atta Akyea.
During the Vice President’s campaign stop in the Akuapem South constituency, Mr Amoah stated that Dr. Bawumia is highly competent not only to lead the NPP but also to be the President of the country.
He said the Vice President’s candidacy resonates with the larger NPP populace’s desire.
He mentioned Dr. Bawumia’s attributes to include his truthfulness, positive nature, emotional intelligence, calm demeanor, listening skills, and devotion to the NPP.
For his part, Mr Atta Akyea said Vice President Bawumia is a blessing from God to lead the NPP to victory in the 2024 elections. During a campaign stop by the Vice President in Abuakwa South, Mr Atta Akyea led delegates of the party to sing a Bawumia rendition of a local gospel song to assure Dr. Bawumia of his support as well as the delegates in the constituency.
Highlighting other reasons for his support of the Vice President, the renowned lawyer said although he has about 5 friends contesting the race, Dr. Bawumia is the best person to lead the NPP. “I have 5 very good friends among the 10 people contesting, but the truth is that Dr. Bawumia is most deserving and the best to lead us to victory.
“Dr. Bawumia has worked so hard for the NPP and contributed so much to the government of President Akufo-Addo, “ he added.
Explaining further, Mr Atta Akyea said Dr. Bawumia’s courage in the dock on behalf of the party in the 2012 presidential election petition convinced him that God has blessed the Vice President. “The day I had so much respect for Dr. Bawumia and I was convinced God has blessed him was when he stood in the box alone and defended the NPP at the Supreme Court. “I am a lawyer and I know it is not easy to be in the dock, let alone a high profile case like the presidential election petition.”
