The Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has been tight lipped over reports that he intends to succeed President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as Ghana’s next leader.
Dr Bawumia’s slogan
Though it has been in the open and there is a succinct campaign going on for the Vice President by leading members of the NPP, Dr. Bawumia is yet to comment on it publicly.
However, in a post on Twitter yesterday, the Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia, gave the clearest hint yet of his intentions to contest for the flagbearership of the New Patriotic Party for 2024.
And, he did so by drawing a link between what seems to be his presidential ambition with a Biblical verse, Matthew 19:26.
Dr Bawumia posted a picture which had the Ghana flag to the left and the NPP’s red, white and blue flag to the right with the inscription “It Is Possible” at the top of the two flags.
Delivering a speech at the Christ Apostolic Church on 26 March 2023 held at the Accra International Conference Center (AICC), he said: “I believe that God has a destiny for Ghana. I believe that God will get Ghana to the promise land. With God, it is possible! With God, it is possible! With God, it is possible!”
The post set social media agog with many Ghanaians lashing out at the Vice President for conceiving the idea to run amidst the economic difficulties.
