His Excellency Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, since his declaration of intent to contest for the 2024 Flagbearership contest of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has for the first time admitted the very high possibility of him losing the contest.

This was captured in an article titled “I’m Committed to Breaking the 8 irrespective of Who Leads NPP in 2024 – Bawumia” published by myjoyonline and other news outlets on Tuesday 5th October 2021.

Mr. Fred Oware, Senior Advisor to the Vice President, speaking on behalf of Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia at the Upper West Regional Delegates’ Conference noted that the Vice President is prepared to support whoever emerges as the flagbearer of the Party after the 2024 Presidential primaries. 

It is believed that the Vice President settled on this conclusion after his attempts to impose himself on the Party’s delegates of the Northern region failed abysmally coupled with his team’s subsequent realization of his lost favour and acceptance among the delegates of the party; from national through to polling station level, to elect him as the successor to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as the flagbearer for the 2024 general elections.

In view of the aforementioned fact, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and his team have woefully been submerged, and hence, have been dabbling in vote-buying and other forms of bribery strategies in their desperate pursuit of resuscitating the Vice President’s sinking image, his lost favour, and touch with the delegates, and to further influence his acceptance by the Party’s delegates.

Mr. Fred Oware, admittedly stated and showed their desperate quest to rejuvenate Dr. Bawumia’s lost confidence among the delegates through bribery and extravagant spendings evidenced at the Conference with one of the Vice President’s voting buying tactics, and that is, allocation of 20,000 Ghana cedis to each region and 2,000 Ghana Cedis to each constituency, indicating a total of 700,000 Ghana cedis. However, It has been revealed that the exact amount which has been spent by the team of Dr. Bawumia in their attempt to influence the delegates even exceeds the quoted value. 

These vote-buying histrionics from the camp of Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia are becoming one too many. Dr. Bawumia and his team should note that this desperation only subjects the delegates to public ridicule. 

This is a clear indication that the Vice President and his team have realized they don’t have the support of the delegates and hence their admittance, and as a result, such methods are being instituted to attempt to woo and change the minds of the delegates.
