Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has received the support of Dr. Mustapha Hamid, the Chief Executive Officer of the National Petroleum Authority (NPA), who believes he has the best chance of winning the 2024 presidential election, in order to be the NPP flagbearer.
After casting his vote, Dr. Hamid spoke with Hanson Agyemang of Citi News and stated that Bawumia had the skills and traits necessary to be a successful candidate, including as charm, experience, and competence.
“Bawumia is the only candidate who has a realistic chance of winning,” Hamid said.
While acknowledging that there would be competition in the 2024 election, Dr. Hamid expressed confidence that Bawumia will guide the NPP to victory.
“No election has been an easy run since 2000, and I doubt there ever will be,” Hamid said. “But Bawumia has the best chance of winning.”
On Saturday, November 4, more than 200,000 NPP delegates nationwide will cast ballots to choose a presidential candidate for the 2024 contest.
Former Mampong MP Francis Addai-Nimoh, former Agriculture Minister Owusu Afriyie Akoto, and Assin Central MP Kennedy Agyapong are the other contenders.
