3 Things That Will Happen If Dr Bawumia Becomes NPP’s Flagbearer In 2024

Right after the 2020 election, the debate started: Who will succeed Nana Akufo-Addo as the next flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party? The two leading names are Dr Mahamadu Bawumia, the current Vice-President of Ghana, and the Minister of Trade and Industry, Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen. Today, we are looking at three things that will happen if the NPP grants Dr Bawumia the mandate to lead them in the 2024 election.

1. More votes from the Northern Regions

Even though the former Vice-President of Ghana, Dr Aliu Mahama, was from the Northern Region, the NPP has not claimed many seats from the Northern Sector of Ghana than they did in 2016 and 2020. It indicates that Dr Bawumia is working very hard to conquer the Northern Region for the NPP.

Should the NPP decide to give Dr Bawumia the mandate to lead the party in 2024; then they should expect more votes from the Northern Region and the entire Muslim community, who are alienated from the NPP. 

2. Fewer votes from the Southern Regions 

Some things are real, but very difficult to talk about. A typical example is the unwillingness of the Southern Region to support Dr Bawumia. Even if they want to, they will do it hesitantly. Every Ghanaian know about this.

The Southern part; except the Volta Region and some part of Greater Accra, has always been the stronghold of NPP. Should the voters decide to vote for the NPP hesitantly, then their defeat is imminent.

3. The justification of the NPP

The National Democratic Congress has always accused the members of the New Patriotic Party of being ethnocentric. The NPP always try to justify the decision to choose Northerners as Running-mates, but to no avail. Should Dr Bawumia lead the party, the NPP has cleared that allegation.
