Senior Vice President at IMANI-Africa, Kofi Bentil, has voiced his demand to Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, urging him not to include any key members of the current administration led by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in his future government if elected president in the 2024 elections.

Bentil, a vocal advocate for a Bawumia presidency, emphasized that he personally conveyed this demand to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer, warning that he would criticize Bawumia if he goes against this directive.

This declaration from the policy analyst follows Dr. Bawumia’s recent announcement of his key governance plans during a lecture where he outlined his intention to reverse some tax policies of the current government, under which he has served as vice president for the past seven years.

Despite criticisms of the Ghanaian economy’s performance under the current administration, Dr. Bawumia has positioned himself for the presidency, citing his limited power and influence as vice president, akin to a “driver’s mate.” He appeals for the chance to script his own narrative if elected president.

While some skeptics question the feasibility of Dr. Bawumia’s propositions, supporters like Kofi Bentil advocate for fair consideration, arguing that former President John Dramani Mahama of the opposition National Democratic Congress is not a preferable alternative.

Addressing the challenges posed by Dr. Bawumia’s association with the Akufo-Addo government, Bentil urged Ghanaian voters to support the vice president despite the shortcomings of the current administration.

Bentil highlighted concerns about corruption within the current government, expressing disappointment and emphasizing the need for change in leadership. He emphasized that Dr. Bawumia faces the burden of the current government’s shortcomings but urged voters to look beyond this and evaluate his potential as a leader.
