Posters of Vice-President Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia announcing his interest to contest the 2024 presidency on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party has been spotted in Madina.
YEN.com.gh realised that most parts of the Madina community in Accra were splashed with posters of the vice-president.
It is quite surprising to think that posters of the current vice president would be spotted in town less than three months into his second term.
As to whether or not these posters are coming from the camp of Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia,YEN.com.gh cannot confirm.
Meanwhile, there have been several claims that the ministers of trade and industry and Agriculture had also announced their intention to contest the presidency.
Instead, he said he was in the capital of the Ashanti Region to rest and recover from a fever he was battling.
Afriyie Akoto’s denial followed reports that he met “some top-notch power brokers” of the NPP in Kumasi over the weekend where he announced his intention to join the scramble to lead the governing NPP into the 2024 elections.
Meanwhile, a leading member of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, has lashed out at some cabinet ministers who are sneakily holding meetings to announce their presidential ambitions, barely four months into President Akufo-Addo’s second term.
In a Facebook post sighted by YEN.com.gh, he expressed disgust at those ministers seeking to already succeed the president when governments across the world are battling the coronavirus pandemic, economic hardships among other excruciating social challenges.
“Which part of this, don’t you get, Mr. Cabinet Member!” he wrote. “This is not the time to be planting for delegates and votes,” he added.
That notwithstanding, he admonished the cabinet ministers with presidential ambition going about campaigning for votes and delegates to resign and focus on their interest.
