Ghana’s ruling government, New Patriotic Party (NPP) has revealed the next presidential candidate after Nana Akufo-Addo has served his full term in office.
The vice president Dr. Alhaji Mahamudu Bawumia has been targetted as the next presidential candidate for the NPP, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, a.k.a Sir John has said.
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Forestry Commission is optimistic the National Democratic Congress (NDC) will wallow in opposition for a long period of time.
Speaking in an interview on Peace FM’s morning show dubbed ‘Kokrokoo’, Sir John posited that the NDC will not come to power until Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has had the opportunity of serving a full eight-year term of office.
Explaining why he thinks Bawumia will be president after Akufo-Addo, he said: “it is factual that the ruling government has performed tremendously well. After the mess left behind by the previous administration headed by John Dramani Mahama; the damage they caused, and the way this government has fixed the economy, if it were to be related to an examination, Akufo-Addo will poll 80 percent.
“He even qualifies to get 90 percent. We want to tell John Mahama that even with the ten percent left, NDC is still not an option. It is only Akufo-Addo we want…by 2020 Ghanaians will endorse Akufo Addo again,” he added.
