Brother and Spokesperson for the Kennedy Agyapong campaign team, Ralph Agyapong has said that polling station executives in Assin Central who declared their support for Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia are just bitter individuals.
According to him, these individuals did not have the support of Kennedy Agyapong during the party’s polling station executives elections and therefore want to pay back the Assin Central Member of Parliament, who is in a pole position to lead the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in 2024.
“Those who declared their support for Dr Bawumia in Assin Central are people who are bitter because he refused to support them. Their group of ten lost the elections, and this is a way to pay him back. These are individuals Kennedy Agyapong has helped in the past and this is a clear indication that some people are naturally born bad,” he said.
He indicated that it is clear that democracy is at play in Assin Central as compared to some regions where people with dissenting opinions and views are being intimidated.
“We can now acknowledge that democracy works in Assin Central. Unlike one region where delegates were made to display their votes to ensure that they voted for a particular candidate. There was a Minister who was the last to vote and he ensured that all the delegates towed a particular line. That is not what is happening in Assin Central.”
Hundreds of New Patriotic Party (NPP) delegates in the Assin Central Constituency have declared their support for Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia as the National Delegates Conference to elect a flagbearer for the party draws closer.
The delegates, including polling station chairmen and other executives, explained that Dr Bawumia is the best among the four remaining aspirants to represent the party at next year’s election and has all it takes to win the presidential election for the NPP.
They also noted that Dr Bawumia is the backbone behind the major achievements of the Akufo-Addo-led administration and that makes him capable of leading the party and subsequently winning the 2024 General Elections.
For them, Dr Bawumia’s promise to make ten appointments each from each constituency will ensure that as executives and committed members of the party, they benefit from such appointments.
“We are going to the polls to elect a flagbearer on November 4, 2023. And an election is to declare your stand and make a choice. Among the four aspirants for the flagbearer position, the one I think is best fit to win power for the NPP in 2024 is Dr Mahamudu Bawumia. This is because if we look at the major achievements of the Akufo-Addo administration, they have become possible because of the support he has enjoyed from Dr Bawumia as his vice…That is why my people and I have met here and have thrown our support fully behind Dr Mahamudu Bawumia. We are confident that when he wins the primaries, he will definitely win the presidential election in 2024 for the NPP,” Raphael Acquah, Chairman of Wurakese DA Polling station explained in.
One other lamented how the party in the Constituency has neglected them and how they now find hope in the actions and promises of Dr Bawumia. This, he noted, is why Dr Bawumia is their choice come November 4, 2023, when they elect a flagbearer for the NPP at the National Delegates Conference.
