A leading member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in USA, Owusu Afriyie says it’s undemocratic to consider the Vice president Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and Alan Kyerematen as sure bet for NPP in 2024 elections.
According to him, Mr Kyerematen politically has more experience and wisdom than the vice President, adding that, he’s the best candidate to lead NPP to victory in 2024.
“Because Alan will win, most MPs and other party folks are championing Alan-Bawumia ticket which is not going to happen. Kennedy Agyapong is even credible than Bawumia”
He said the development plans of Alan is beyond all aspirants in the party as well as the NDC. “It’s Alan’s time and no one can stop him”, he said.
Meanwhile, a survey by Global InfoAnalytics revealed that Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen is the likeliest candidate to lead the New Patriotic Party (NPP) after the party’s upcoming flagbearership contest.
In its October 2022 report, NPP supporters deemed Alan as a more viable candidate than Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
According to the report, Bawumia’s decline in rating during the survey ‘coincides with the country’s worsening economic situation’.
The study also showed that Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, is another force to reckon with in the NPP’s flagbearership contest.
“A new opinion poll conducted by Global InfoAnalytics for October 2022 shows the Trade and Industry Minister, Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen (AKK) continues to expand his lead over his closest rival Dr Mahamudu Bawumia (DMB) in the race to lead the NPP as the country’s economic crisis deepens.
The poll shows AKK is the preferred candidate of general voters to lead the NPP in 2024. AKK now leads DMB, 44% to 31%. Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, MP (KOA) came third with 14% of the votes”, a summary of the report stated.
This revelation comes at a time when the Vice President is reportedly lacing his boots to lead the NPP in the party’s quest to ‘break the 8’.
