NPPDECIDES: BAWUMIA LEADS WITH 61%

Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, the vice president of Ghana, has won the New Patriotic Party (NPP) presidential primary, setting him up for a showdown with former president and NDC flagbearer John Dramani Mahama in the 2024 general election.

Dr Bawumia defeated a field of three other candidates, including Kennedy Agyapong, the outspoken Assin Central MP, Dr Owusu Afriyie Akoto, a former Minister for Agriculture and former Mampong MP, Francis Addai-Nimoh.

Provisional results so far indicate that Dr Bawumia polled 118210 votes representing 61.43% while his closest contender Mr Agyapong polled 71991 votes representing 37.41%.

 

 

Dr. Afriyie Akoto who placed a distant third polled 1459 votes representing 0.76% while Addai-Nimoh garnered a meagre 781 representing 0.41%.

A total of 193339 delegates voted in Saturday’s presidential primary. The total valid votes were 192, 441 with 898 votes rejected. Turn out was 94.63%.

Bawumia was predicted from the start to win the presidential primary but he, however, failed to meet the target of 80% set by members of his campaign team.
