The Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia (DMB) brand continues to be an attracting force for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) grassroots as more persons have openly ditched other aspirants for the Vice President.
Barely a week after some executives in the Assin Central Constituency of the Central Region, the home constituency of Kennedy Agyapong, one of the flagbearer aspirants openly declared their support for the Vice President; the Ashanti Region has also done the same.
At a news conference on Sunday, October 15, 2023, supporters of John Alan Kwadwo Kyeremanten and Kennedy Agyapong defected to the camp of Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia pledging their unflinching support.
Led by Mr Dawuda Afriyie, the First Vice Chairman of the Offinso North Constituency they were heard in a viral video singing the praise of the Vice President and shouting “It’s Possible”
Addressing the press, Adul Aziz Ismail popularly known as Kennedy Ba and a polling station Executive at Kwaman Methodist in the Afigya Kwabre North Constituency underscored the need for a winnable candidate, Dr. Bawumia.
“We are looking for a winnable flagbearer for the 2024 polls. Some of our MPs and Executives have come under severe attacks over their choice of their preferred candidates. The Majority Leader who has been an MP for several years knows the best candidate to be flagbearer and settled on the Vice President as the best candidate. Our father Kan Dapaah believes Bawumia is the obvious choice and we have bought into their idea. As a result, we have resolved to support the Vice President”, he disclosed.
