Bawumia Will Inflict A Successful Defeat on Mahama– Akufo-Addo

In an address to supporters of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) at the Accra Sports Stadium, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo expressed his confidence in Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the flagbearer-elect of the party.

Nana Akufo-Addo believes that Dr Bawumia has the ability to unite the NPP and secure victory in the upcoming 2024 general elections.

Akufo-Addo urged party members to work together to prevent former President John Mahama from regaining power. “I am passing on the flagbearer role of our party after you have honored me to lead this party,” said Akufo-Addo. “I have done my best, but I am still left with one thing to do, and that is to help elect Bawumia as president. So let us pull together to ensure [John] Mahama does not return to power.”
