Former lawmaker for Tamale Central, Inusah Fuseini says the campaign strategy adopted by Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia to use the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) Akan stance against them in order to be elected flagbearer will fail.
According to him, Dr Bawumia and majority leaders, Kyei-Mensah Bonsu are banking their hopes on using non-Akan on its members in order to get delegates to vote Bawumia as flagbearer for the 2024 polls.
“What did you expect Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu to say than say what he said. He is trying to exorcise the spirit behind the NPP party. A party that has been touted as an Akan party that gives no opportunity to Northerners and as a party that went out of its way to invite Northerners into their fold, they feel that this is the best time to give the highest position of the party to a Northerner to seal or solidify and kill the mantra that NPP is an Akan party. That is what he was trying to do. It is a political strategy and that is the campaign strategy of Mahamudu Bawumia but it will fail,” Inusah Fuseini was quoted by mynewsgh.
