    Bawumia’s campaign team is divided, winning 2024 elections will be difficult – Movement For Change

    Spokesperson for the Movement For Change (MFC), Solomon Owusu, has voiced his concern about the potential electoral performance of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Flagbearer, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, .

    According to him, it will be difficult for Bawumia to secure more votes in the upcoming December 7 polls with the current composition of his campaign team.

    He highlighted internal division within the party, particularly the exclusion of followers of Ken Agyapong from the campaign team.

    ”If the NPP uses this campaign team to secure even 12% of the national votes in the 2024 general elections, I will be shocked and be disappointed in Ghanaians. This campiagn team is already divided and this shows that there’s nothing like unity in the party. Ken Agyapong was Bawumia’s contender in the party’s Presidential primary but none of the people who followed Ken Agyapong was selected as member of the campaign team. Ken Agyapong’s followers have been left out in the campaign team. What the Bawumia people are saying is that the party belongs to us and we’ve taken it.

    ”The NPP cannot secure 12% of votes in the coming election. Mahama in 2016 with inflation at 15.4% secured 44% and Akufo-Addo -Bawumia government inflation stands at 23.5%. Work out the simple proportion and see the percentage of votes Bawumia will secure come December 7 election. Mahama’s debt to GDP was 57% or so, even that one Ghanaians gave him 44% of votes cast but Akufo-Addo – Bawumia’s debt to GDP is over 70%, how many percentage of votes do you expect Ghanaians to give him,” Solomon Owusu asked?

    During his appearance on the Ghana Kasa show on Kasapa 102.5FM, Mr Owusu stated that if the NPP secures12% votes in the 2024 general elections, it would be a shocking and disappointing outcome.

    The NPP National Executive Committee and National Council meetings appointed members for the Presidential campaign team on Monday, February 19, 2024, including figures like Justin Kodua Frimpong, Henry Nana Boakye, and Dan Botwe, Owusu expressed doubt about the team’s ability to secure victory.
