The race for the flagbearaship of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has started in earnest, and even though some are worried it is too early for the party to begin such an intra-campaign, the push for the 2024 leadership of the party keeps increasing in terms of tempo nonetheless with Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia being the most marketed at this stage.
In Politics, nothing is easy, except things that come naturally by dint of God's favour. That seems to be the faith of the man, Dr. Bawumia who many regard as not only an academic and practical economist, but also, a man with economic transformational prowess. Easily, and naturally, Dr. Bawumia is emerging as the arrow head of NPP's 2024 electoral battle.
Since his partnership with Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, and his involvement in active politics in the republic, he has through his genuine and sincere policy engagement with Ghanaians introduced several life improving projects, even as the second in command to H.E. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
In Ghana today, the massive digitization projects that is making life simple and easy for most Ghanaians are his direct handy work. He has literally digitised Ghana's economy, identification regime, emergency medical support systems, to mention but a few.
He has through diligent political engagement with the Ghanaian people accrued to himself the needed charisma that makes him presentable on any political platforms, be it local or international.
Dr. Bawumia speaks with so much wisdom. His sharpened verbal jabs, especially to his political opponents takes over the airwaves anytime he mounts a stage. One can confidently state that, the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) catches cold anytime Dr. Bawumia sneezes. In fact, the whole country listens, when he speaks. He is NDC's nightmare.
The essence of politics and politicking is to attained one thing, Power. So far, what the eye can see, when it seeks a true leader who can assist the NPP break the 8-year rule for each of the NDC-NPP duopoly, is the indefatigable Bawumia.
For now, bearing any unlikely last minute alteration within the Ghanaian political landscape, the man Bawumia stands tall. He does not only towers in the NPP, he also looks superior to even the NDC's John Dramani Mahama.
NPP's sure bet for the 2024 quest to maintaining power can only be the Walewale darling boy. The north, where he hails, has shown in the result of the just ended 2020 general elections that, it will stand by him when the NPP presents him as their flagbearer.
DMB, as he is affectionately called is arguably becoming NPP's sure bet to maintain the party in power in 2024 against the already bruised NDC.
It is becoming apparent also, even though unscientific, that his character and demeanor resonates with a larger section of the NPP youth. Across social media, the young NPP minds have gravitated towards his camp, rooting for him to lead them into 2024.
It seems the Bawumia project has assumed the shape of a movement and any other contender against him looks like an underdog in the contest.
