After President Nana Akuffo Addo won the court case on March 4, 2021, top names popped up to be the successor of the president, on the ticket of New Patriotic Party (NPP). The two top names that came into people’s mind is Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia and Trade Minister Alan John Kyremanten. But there is certainly a third person that can cause a very big surprise to many.
Bawumia VRS Alan
The Vice President hails from the Dombo Tradition whiles the Trade Minister hails from the Busia Tradition. In a normal circumstance, it is the turn of the Dombo Tradition since Busia Tradition had H.E John Agyekum Kuffuor and Dankwa Tradition produced H.E Nana Akuffo Addo. Now, it is a game and whoever wins the primaries, will end up contesting on the party ticket. Alan contested for the Flag bearer position and lost to Nana after Kuffuor left office. He has a slight advantage over Bawumia in contesting experience, but Bawumia will use his position as Vice President to become more superior.
Even though many will want Bawumia to become President, because of his achievements and also, is the time for Dombo Tradition to reign. People must not forget the fact that, Ashanti Region is the world Bank of the NPP and Northern Region offers a little vote. Anyone that is chosen from Ashanti Region can led the party. Some people may argue that, Nana is not from Ashanti but he led the party. The fact is that, Eastern Region is another strong hold of NPP, if they vote massively and other Region also vote well, he can win. Can the Northern side do that for Bawumia?
The Third Man
The man that can cause a change is Osei Okyei Mensah Bonsu. He has stayed in Parliament for long and can convince many Members of Parliament to his side. They can impart it to the constituents and his support base will be widened. But this move can go in favour of Dr. Bawumia, since Bonsu and Alan will split the vote in Ashanti Region. Again, all this three are much competent for the job but any one that Mr. Bonsu give his support to can lead the party easily.
Honorable Osei Bonsu is an urban planner and a politician. He became an MP from 1997 till date, going to 28 years. He served as a, Whip, Minority leader and Majority leader, and served on several committees with past and new MPs. He is the Minister of Parliamentary Affairs going into 20 years and a Caretaker Finance Minister. He is the leader of the Business Committee; Committee on Selection; Committee on Works and Housing; Committee on Youth and Sports; Committee on Lands and Forestry; Committee on Subsidiary Legislation; Special Budget Committee, Appointments Committee; Standing Orders Committee etc. He is the leader of parliament and a powerful person in that area.
The man holds so many positions in government and, he is like the engine of the government in Parliamentary issues. Did you think all this is a coincidence? Hell no, he is being prepared for something that needs to be reveal soon. He has the capacity to counter both the Vice President and the Trade Minister. He alone is having a chunk of duties to perform in the government. It will not be much surprising if he shows an interest and end up leading the NPP.
In the fourth Republic, H.E John Mahama and President Nana Addo are both MPs and became Presidents, going for Honorable Bonsu. Both H.E the late Atta Mills and John Mahama are Vice and became president, going for Dr. Bawumia. They are all in a good position to lead, but the end will show.
