The Bawumia camp continues has intensified its quest to succeed Nana Akufo-Addo as leader of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in 2024, with a new stunt of posters released to the public.
The brand new campaign poster has emerged of the Vice President rallying for his 2024 Presidential project.
It is the same “Bawumia 8” poster, but this time with a slight change in the design with the photo of a still smiling Bawumia apparently frozen in a dance move while in some form of jollification.
It would be recalled, that when the first campaign posters of Bawumia emerged, it caused an uproar within the ruling party with the Ashanti bloc, in particular, taking offense.
Since then, there has been an outpouring of intellectual assessments about how Bawumia will be difficult to market due to his reputation for saying things that are untrue. Google search engine reaffirmed this by causing him to pop up whenever people search the biggest liar in Ghana.
There have also been warnings that the push from the Bawumia camp potentiates an upset of Ashantis who form the backbone of the party, because, after 8 years of Akufo-Addo and the Akyem bloc’s stranglehold on the NPP, the time has finally come for the Ashantis to take over the leadership of the party.
The Bawumia camp has however been countering that a Bawumia candidature offers the party the opportunity to tame its Akan supremacist notoriety as Bawumia is a Northerner from Walewale.
In fact, some Northerners have even ventured the point that the 2020 election success of the NPP was vitally due to good Northern votes and that had the Northern Region, which has traditionally been dominated by the NDC, not voted massively for the NPP, the party would have lost the election.
And the credit for the Northern votes has been heaped on Bawumia.
Meanwhile, some within the Ashanti base of the party are not happy about their leader, Alan Kyeremanten’s seeming laid back disposition as Bawumia fights tooth and nail for the spotlight.
