Bryan Acheampong, the Member of Parliament for Abetifi, has resolutely thrown his support behind Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia as the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) chosen flagbearer for the upcoming 2024 presidential race. Acheampong’s unequivocal endorsement came to light during his appearance on the influential radio program “Ekosiisen” aired on Asempa FM.
Acheampong’s words left no room for ambiguity regarding his stance on Dr. Bawumia’s candidacy. “I firmly believe that Vice President Bawumia is the natural and rightful choice to lead the NPP into the 2024 elections. The spirit of our party aligns with Bawumia, irrespective of whether we consider the option of an expanded electoral college,” Acheampong stated confidently.
Expanding on his viewpoint, Acheampong underlined the pivotal role played by the party’s internal dynamics. “The influence wielded by those who participated in the super delegates’ vote resonates profoundly within the grassroots. I ardently hope that my esteemed senior colleagues share the same insightful perspective that I do.”
Acheampong’s sentiments extended further, encompassing a plea for unification among party members. He underscored the critical importance of recognizing the prevalent sentiment. “For those who discern the significance of graciously withdrawing from the race, history will surely remember them favourably. The unity of our party takes precedence.”
Echoing his assessment of the perils of internal division, Acheampong asserted, “Allowing the internal contest to persist might lead to irreparable consequences. Dr. Bawumia embodies the very essence of our party, and his leadership is nothing short of indispensable.”
Acheampong’s declarations have swiftly ignited fervent discussions within the intricate web of political discourse. His endorsement carries notable weight within NPP circles. As the NPP navigates the intricacies of selecting its flagbearer, Acheampong’s vocal support could potentially redefine the prevailing dynamics and steer the course of the party’s nomination process.
With the anticipation surrounding the forthcoming 2024 elections gathering momentum, the NPP is redoubling its efforts to present a united and formidable front, primed for victory. As the political race unfolds, Acheampong’s unwavering backing for Dr Bawumia is poised to introduce an additional layer to the ongoing deliberations that encompass the NPP’s selection of a flagbearer and the strategic roadmap they chart for the nation’s future.
