Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia as flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) with Dr Mathew Opoku Prempeh as his running mate in the 2024 polls will give the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) headache, Allotey Jacobs, former Central regional minister of the NDC has claimed.
According to him, Vice President Bawumia has changed the political narrative in the country and has eaten into the NDC political space, particularly, the Northern Region.
“It’s a herculean task and I keep on saying it, you won’t see it now but when you start seeing it, it will be boom. I don’t know the stuff he’s made of but when you look at our political space, Dr Bawumia has changed the discourse and you see, the Northern region was for NDC but you see the inroads the NPP is making? So I’m saying that he’s gradually eating into space,” Allotey Jacobs said on Kingdom FM.
“Monkeys play by sizes . . . Dr Bawumia has raised the bar so high that now we need someone of his level or status to counter him. NDC will get massive headache if the NPP present Bawumia and Matthew Opoku Prempeh for the 202o election,” he added.
