A former Deputy General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Obiri Boahen, has said he would ensure that the sitting Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, wins the party’s flagbearer contest and subsequently the 2024 general elections to become the next President of Ghana.
Nana Obiri Boahen, who described himself as a president of the global movement for Dr Bawumia for President, said that he has not gone for any appointment from the Vice President. Instead, he was doing so on his own volition.
“No man born of a woman can beat Dr Bawumia” he said, adding: “I am borrowing the words of William Shakespeare from his book, Macbeth,” to buttress his point.
Nana Obiri Boahen was, however, quick to add that so far, all the flagbearer aspirants who had declared their intention to contest for the party’s flagbearership were competent and capable of leading the party but “I am of the strong conviction that Dr Bawumia will win the contest and go ahead to win the national elections.”
“I know the volume of work I am doing for Dr Bawumia and everywhere I go, I receive a lot of encouragement from the people concerning Dr Bawumia,” he stated.
The NPP former Deputy General Secretary said: “I am going to set this nation ablaze. What I mean is that I am going to set this country politically ablaze by ensuring that Vice President Bawumia wins the NPP presidential primary and win the national elections.
