Ahead of the official announcement of his candidacy in the New Patriotic Party's (NPP) forthcoming presidential primaries, social media has been abuzz with viral images of a convoy of pickup trucks adorned with the picture of Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia. The trucks, emblazoned with Dr. Bawumia's campaign logo, can be seen traversing the streets of the capital city.
The online response to these images has been a mixed bag, with some of Dr. Bawumia's supporters expressing excitement at his readiness to vie for power. However, others have strongly criticized the Vice President for acquiring campaign vehicles amidst the country's current economic challenges.
Dr. Bawumia, a prominent contender in the NPP's flagbearership race, faces stiff competition from other aspirants such as Kennedy Agyapong, Alan Kyerematen, Afriyie Akoto, and Kwabena Agyapong. During a meeting with members of the NPP caucus in parliament, he revealed his intention to enter the primaries and sought their endorsement. A formal declaration from the Vice President is expected to be made in the upcoming days.
