Ama Busia has stated that Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia is the right person to lead the NPP into the 2024 elections.
“I hold Dr. Bawumia in high esteem and have unwavering faith in him,” Ama Busia said in a recent interview as reported by graphic.com.gh.
Sister of late Prime Minister Kofi Abrefa Busia, Ama Busia added that: "When it comes to Bawumia, let me stand up for him. He has performed so well as Vice President and I say no Vice President has worked so hard and performed better than him in Ghana," said Madam Ama Busia.
In an earlier YEN.com.gh report, the Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Accra, Rt. Rev. Dr. Daniel S.M Torto declared that “no man can dim the light” of Dr. Bawumia.
The vice president will be battling the likes of Trade and Industry Minister, Alan John Kwadwo Kyeremanten and the Agriculture Minister for the chance to lead the NPP into the 2024 elections.
A recent survey by the European Public Policy Institute (EPPI) disclosed that Dr. Bawumia has an “upper hand” over the trade and industry minister as the successor to President Akufo-Addo as the NPP’s presidential candidate for the 2024 elections.
Addressing congregants at the Easter Sunday Service of the Anglican Diocese of Accra, Rt. Rev. Torto urged the vice president to remain resolute and work for God and man because he is on a worthy cause.
“There is light ahead of you and only God can put that light off. No man and I mean no man can dim your light…,” the man of God told the vice president when he joined members of the church for the Easter Sunday worship.
Meanwhile, the National Communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sammy Gyamfi stated that former President John Dramani Mahama will be the party’s presidential candidate for the 2024 general elections.
