Vote for Bawumia to counter claims that the NPP is an Akan party, according to Egypta Mercer. The highly qualified Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has been urged to be chosen as the party’s flagbearer by Andrew Egyapa Mercer, the deputy energy minister and Sekondi Member of Parliament (MP) for the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Bawumia, he said, is the party’s best chance to put an end to the misinformation that the NPP is a pro-Akan party and that non-Akans cannot become its highest leadership post, flagbearer.
According to him, the fact that Dr. Bawumia is one of the ten candidates running for flagbearer offers the delegates the ideal chance to demonstrate that the party is an inclusive one that is only concerned with competence and loyalty to the party.
“There has been persistent propaganda that the NPP is an Akan party over the years. And somehow, due of the apparent vulnerabilty of some people, this falsehood is spreading…And for everyone who like statistics, we must by necessity break it when it comes to politics and elections. And what beautiful opportunity than to vote for Dr. Bawumia,” he asserted in a 2023 August 24 morning show interview with Connect FM.
Given that Dr. Bawumia is capable and best-positioned to aid the NPP in winning the general elections in 2024, Mr. Egyapa Mercer thus launched a passionate appeal to the delegates not to forgo the chance to elect him.
“Voting for Dr. Bawumia will only show that the NPP values diversity and that anyone may join the party at any level if they possess the necessary skills and aptitude.
