A Political analyst and Senior Lecturer at the University of Cape Coast (UCC), Dr. Jonathan-Asante Otchere has said Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s inconsistency with his messages will cause the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the upcoming 2024 elections.
This comes on the back of Vice President Bawumia assuring the NPP that he is going to give the National Democratic Congress (NDC) a “showdown” in its strongholds in the 2024 elections.
Addressing NPP delegates in the Oti Region on Saturday September 09, 2023 Dr. Bawumia stated that the Zongos and other strongholds of the NDC are waiting for him to be elected flag bearer of the NPP.
Commenting on the development on Morning Starr with Francis Abban on Monday September 11, 2023, the political analyst stated that he cannot fathom how the NPP should put Dr. Bawumia ahead of Alan Kyerematen.
“For NPP to put Bawumia ahead of Alan, maybe Alan was not good enough. But for the NPP machinery to do that I don’t know whether they have done any calculable analysis to send Dr. Bawumia to the forefront of NPP. Because everything that he says if he wins the Presidential slot of the NPP has tape recording or a video of what he said previously.
“So it is that inconsistency that is going to create a problem for the NPP in their campaign, because there are two key words involved, trustworthiness and deliverability,” the political analyst stated.
Dr. Asante-Otchere further stated that Ghanaians will not trust Dr. Bawumia considering his statement made in the past.
