Some youth of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) have said they will not agree for any candidate to lead the party for the 2024 polls other than Vie President Bawumia.
These were comments made by these individuals after Bawumia issued a statement urging Ghanaians to disregard posters making rounds presenting him as a potential presidential candidate.
These youth believe the Vice President is being manipulated and made to succumb to the party’s internal pressure especially when Alan Kyeremanteng appears to be the favourite candidate to lead the party.
Commenting under the Vice President’s post on his Facebook page, these youth said they are ready to vote against the NPP should Bawumia be bypassed as the preferred candidate to lead the party for the 2024 polls.
According to them, they believe the 8-year jinx where a new party is voted into power to steer the affairs of the nation need to be broken and it will only take Bawumia for that to happen.

It’s time for Bawumia to come, the primaries must be done on consensus to give Bawumia the fullest concentration. The National executive committee must note this, Bawumia must succeed Akufo-Addo based on concensus. #We will post them 100times
