Formerly associated with Alan Kyeremanten, Mr. Kufuor’s endorsement of Dr Bawumia marks a significant shift in political dynamics, particularly within the New Patriotic Party (NPP). Despite past alignments with Kyeremanten during the 2008 presidential election, Mr. Kufuor has now firmly thrown his weight behind Dr. Bawumia, affirming the Vice President’s candidacy as the ideal choice to lead Ghana forward.

During the event, Mr. Kufuor hailed Dr. Bawumia as a man destined for greatness, praising his visionary leadership qualities and urging widespread support for his endeavors. He underscored Dr. Bawumia’s unique understanding of contemporary challenges, emphasizing the need for competent leadership equipped to navigate the complexities of the modern world.

Drawing parallels with the global scarcity of quality leadership, Mr. Kufuor emphasized Ghana’s need for a visionary leader who can harness technological advancements and geopolitical insights to drive progress. He described Dr. Bawumia as uniquely qualified for the task, possessing a deep grasp of digitalization and geopolitics, coupled with humility and the right temperament for the presidency.
