Election 2024: Bawumia-NAPO ticket sensible and strategic move, says political analyst


Political analyst and research fellow at the Centre for Democratic Development (CDD-Ghana), Dr John Osae-Kwapong, has described the proposal of Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh, also known as NAPO, as Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s running mate as a sensible move.

He says NAPO’s selection was not surprising at all because of the prominent voices that joined the calls for his announcement.

“After some time, I got the impression that there were active attempts by certain key voices to highlight the fact that he [NAPO] would be a strong candidate to partner with Bawumia in the upcoming elections so I wasn’t particularly surprised when the announcement was made that his name was submitted to NEC for consideration.

“Every presidential candidate selects their running mate, I believe, being guided by two key things; the political dividends that they believe the candidate can bring to their campaign and then also the governance dividends”, Dr Osae-Kwapong was quoted by citinewsroom.com as saying.

“When you put everything together, the choice makes sense and I can also see that this is the choice that the vice president thinks is a choice that will help him make a case for a Bawumia presidency and if he wins, this is a choice that can help him govern,” he added.
