Dr. Bawumia Talks About Presidential Ambition

The Vice President of the Republic of Ghana His Excellency Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has broken the silence on presidential ambitions.

Dr. Bawumia in an interview with Kenyan private TV channel, KTN News opened up on whether or not he intends to succeed President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and lead the New Patriotic Party, NPP into the 2024 polls.

The NPP is expected to elect a flagbearer to lead them to the 2024 polls and also in their attempt to break the eight against their top opponent the National Democratic Congress, NDC.

Dr. Bawumia is one of the top contenders known to succeed the H.E Nana Akufo-Addo.

He stated in the interview that his focus now is to help the president accomplish their policies and also relieve Ghanaians of the economic burden.

“I think right now, I’m just focused on helping my boss the president Nana Akufo-Addo fulfil his vision and deliver on his agenda. We don’t have too much time for thinking about 2024 right now. I think that if you get to 2024 and you don’t have a record, you will have nothing to campaign on. So right now, we are focused on that and we don’t know what the future holds but we will focus on the work for now,” Bawumia said.

Minister of Trade and Industry, Alan Kyeremateng, Agri Minister Afriyie Osei Akoto, and Assin North MP Kennedy Agyapong are names that came up in the race for flagbearer for the NPP.
