Award-winning Ghanaian radio presenter Afia Pokuaa, popularly known as Vim Lady says Dr Mahamudu Bawumia is the rightful candidate to compete John Mahama in the 2024 general elections if NPP wants to retain power.
“There’s no candidate in NPP that can match ex-president Mahama than Bawumia,” she said. According to her, should the NPP refuse to elect the Vice President as the next successor of President Akufo-Addo come 2024, the incumbent NPP administration should forget winning the election.
Laying the basis for her argument while speaking on Okay FM’s Egyaso Gyaso show, she revealed that over the past decade Bawumia has marketed himself so well amongst the potential candidates who’ve shown interest in leading the NPP.
Making reference to his performance at the 2012 Election Petition hearing to that of his impressive achievement in 2008 which won him the appointment of Vice President, Vim Lady asserted that replacing Bawumia will cost the NPP.
She further stated that should NPP sideline Bawumia “the NDC’s campaign message will be about the NPP using and dumping Northerners. That is the message the NDC will preach and then they will bring in the Aliu Mahama story to buttress it. The NPP needs to field Bawumia if he loses that will be his problem to deal with. Bawumia has marketed himself very well and is the only candidate who can give Mahama a run for his money.”
