Bawumia to announce running mate soon; Onyinah Adutwum out – Report

The Vice President and flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, will imminently announce his running mate.

It is reliably gathered that within days, the NPP flagbearer will present the chosen nominee’s name to the National Council of the party for deliberation.

While the identity of the nominee remains tightly guarded, it is known who has not made the cut.

Despite earlier speculations suggesting influential church leader Opoku Onyinah as a contender, reports reveal he was never under consideration.

Instead, Rev. Victor Kusi Boateng was in contention until his involvement in a double identity scandal related to gold dealings, details of which have been disclosed.

Chief of Staff Frema Opare and Education Minister Dr. Yaw Osei Adutwum were also not selected, contrary to previous reports.

Isaac Osei declined a shortlist offer citing health concerns and age, while Naa Torshie Addo has been informed she won’t be chosen.

The Administrator of the Common Fund has expressed her aspiration to become Chief of Staff in a future Bawumia administration, notifying party Kingmakers and the flagbearer.

There’s an ongoing struggle within the NPP and among traditional opinion leaders and influencers to mitigate dissent over the candidate selection, particularly in the Ashanti Region.

Reportedly, the Akyem faction of the party has yielded to pressure to support the flagbearer’s choice of candidate.

Once approved by the National Council, the submitted nominee’s name will be disclosed to the party.
