I risked my political career for NPP during the 2012 election petition despite excuses from others

Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, vice president, claims he is the ideal candidate to lead the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) into the general elections of 2024.

He asserts that because of his contributions to the party, he merits the opportunity to succeed President Akufo-Addo and assist the party in “breaking the 8.”

According to Dr. Bawumia, people running for the position today made excuses but he did not when the party needed a witness for the petition for the general election in 2012.
On Thursday, July 6, Dr. Bawumia declared in a speech to party delegates in the Ashanti Region that he risked his political future for the NPP, which resulted in the party’s win in 2016.

“When the party needed a witness for the Supreme Court petition about the general election of 2012, the majority of our members were making excuses. I gave up my political career for the party, well aware of the repercussions that would follow if I didn’t do well in court.

Dr. Bawumia continued, “There were numerous justifications; some said they were traveling and doing other things because they were afraid to risk their political careers. But I kept my position; I’m the best candidate to lead the party.

Alan Kwadwao Kyerematen, a close rival of Dr. Bawumia, is supported by people who think their candidate deserves to win since he has similarly made sacrifices for the party.

They contend that he has long been vying for the position with President Akufo-Addo and Former President Kufour.

On November 4, the NPP will choose its standard bearer for the elections of 2024.

The party’s vetting committee, which is led by former Speaker of Parliament Prof. Mike Oquaye, has so far interviewed 10 candidates.

On Monday, July 10, the Committee will deliver its findings to the National Council via the General Secretary.
