I’m thankful to God, delegates for the emphatic endorsement – Bawumia

Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the vice president, has thanked God for the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) overwhelming endorsement at Saturday’s Super Delegates Conference.

On Saturday, specially chosen NPP delegates cast ballots around the country to begin the process of choosing a flagbearer for the elections of 2024.

The goal of the election on Saturday was to narrow the field of potential party leaders to five from the ten contenders.

With about 68.15%, Dr. Bawumia won, followed by Kennedy Agyapong in second place and Alan Kyerematen in third.

Vice President Bawumia thanked God and the party in a statement to the media after the results were announced for the party’s resounding victory in the first round of the competition.

“I’m thankful to God for the emphatic nature of my win today. I  am also thankful to the delegates, for the overwhelming confidence they have shown in me,” Dr. Bawumia said, adding that getting over two-thirds of the votes and leaving the other nine contestants to share one-third was a strong signal. 

“I am very humbled and very grateful for the outcome of this election (Super Delegates).”

Dr. Bawumia noted that the Special Delegates Conference was only the first step in winning the general election in November and that he and the party’s delegates at all levels will keep working hard to do so.

“This is only the first step toward our match to the flagbearership. I see this as a step towards winning the flagbearership,” he stated. 

The primary election for the party, according to Dr. Bawumia, is the presidential race scheduled for the next year. He urged for increasing party cohesion in order for the party to present a unified front during the election following the internal conflict.

“We should unite together and close ranks so that we fight together affter the internal elections and win the main election. We have to come together and support whoever emerges winner so that we can vreak the eight. I am confident I will emerge the winner.”
