He is hopeful that a united front between vice president Bawumia and Trade Minister Alan Kyerematen would be the only option to defeating the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) at the polls.
In the view of the former Ellembele MP, both Bawumia and Kyerematen, who would be contesting the party’s presidential primaries next year, have the capabilities to secure victory for the party.
According to a GhanaWeb report, Freddy Blay told Oyerepa TV that uniting the two personalities would also bring the needed unity the party needs going into the crucial 2024 elections
“Almost all the candidates are capable of beating John Mahama in 2024. But I am thinking of a combination of two of them. I would have preferred Alan and Bawumia combination; that won’t be bad, it may do the trick for us,” he was hopeful.
“We’ve been indirectly in our private moments been discussing it on how to unite Alan and Bawumia. Left to me, a combination will be the best for our party. It will bring total unity as we desire,” he told Oyerepa Tv Morning Show host, Kwesi Parker-Wilson.
He also added that he hasn’t personally approached them but his desire would be for the two to join forces for victory in 2024.
NPP Presidential Race: Amoako-Baah Advises Bawumia To Step Aside Because He Is Not A Party Man
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh reported previously that a respected member of the New Patriotic Party, Dr Richard Amoako-Baah has advised Dr Bawumia to shelve his plans to contest the party’s presidential race.
According to the political scientist, the vice president does not have the party’s grassroots support because he is not a true member of the party.
The former political science lecturer at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) told Starr FM that Dr Bawumia will do a poor job at leading the party as a presidential candidate.
