Majority Chief Whip and Member of Parliament for Nsawam Adoagyiri, Frank Annoh-Dompreh has predicted a 70% victory for Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia in the upcoming presidential primary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
He says despite the diverse opinions of some political analysts, he believes it’s going to be a massive win for the vice President.
He said this when he joined the Veep with other MPs at the Manhyia Palace in Kumasi for the second Akwasiadae of the year, 2023.
Mr. Annoh-Dompreh addressing a section of the media said, “this is the first time we are seeing a Muslim who is a leader and is rallying support from even the Christian community, the man is building mosques, churches, reaching out to the Clergy and he is dining, talking and thinking together with the Clergy, for me, I have not seen anything like that such a religious tolerance is something unique on the continent and for me, we must value what we have and celebrate it.”
He said that “I tell you he will not win not less than 70%, have been in this game for a while I have been a student leader, polling station executive, regional executive, and now I have been committee chair once upon a time, I am Chief Whip, I can feel it I can feel the entire spirit of the party is behind this man and anybody who will go against this man is like sweeping a moving current, he is going to win there is nothing you can do about it, is going to be a massive win the minimum will be a 70%.”
He cautioned other aspirants not to underrate and attribute the overwhelming support of the vice President to intimidation.
“That is why I am not with the NDC, from my childhood this party is a party that entertains dissenting reasoning, nobody is intimidated nobody can intimidate members of parliament.
“Don’t also underrate the overwhelming support this man has and attribute it to an intimidation, there is no intimidation those who claim that they are being intimidated should come out and prove.
“There are other members of parliament who are supporting other candidates so is not 100% support, for the record, we don’t have any candidates here, I can give you several names but they are free to join them,” he stated.
He said that the delegates in all 16 regions are pleading with voters to choose Bawumia as the flagbearer and end the 8-year jinx on the political sphere.
Dr. Bawumia, joined the Asantehene to celebrate the second Akwasidae festival of the year at the Manhyia Palace.
He was accompanied by his wife, Samira Bawumia, a huge number of Chief Executive Officers of state institutions, regional and constituency chairmen of the NPP, MPs among others.
