The Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, Dan Botwe has said the NPP electing Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia as the party’s presidential candidate will be the best strategic decision for the party for the 2024 elections.
The former General Secretary of the NPP and MP for Okere said Dr. Bawumia holds the key for an NPP victory in the next elections. Addressing party delegates in the Okere constituency on Sunday, as part of Dr. Bawumia’s campaign tour of the Eastern Region, Mr Botwe said going into the 2024 elections, the NPP ought to be strategic in its decision making and there cannot be a better decision for the party than electing Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia as flagbearer.
“Since we started this flagbearership campaign, I have not spoken. But today I will speak. I was elected General Secretary of the NPP 25 years ago. I have had experience working under several stalwarts of the party. I know the NPP very well. I know very well all the 10 people contesting. But I am here at Okere saying this. Anyone who knows me knows that I speak the truth and you cannot influence me with anything,” he said.
Looking into future He added: “I love all the aspirants but I love the NPP more. My friends in the NPP, if we look at what is happening in Ghana and NPP now, we are looking into the future. “Based on my knowledge of the party and judging from what is happening, I want to say and ask all of you to go and vote for Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.”
Dr. Bawumia’s campaign which started on Sunday also took him to Akuapem North, Akuapem South, and Yilo Krobo constituencies to interact with delegates.
