I haven’t endorsed Bawumia nor any other NPP flagbearer aspirant – Ex-President Kufour

Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia is not John Agyekum Kufour’s choice to lead the NPP in 2024, according to Kufour.
For the upcoming party primary, he has not endorsed anyone.

He asserts that inaccurate media accounts about his support for Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia at the Peduase Valley Resort Father’s Day luncheon.

The former president Carter clarified that his comments on Dr. Bawumia are not recommendations.

When he referred to the vice president as “a devoted son,” the former president said he wasn’t being political.

“President Kufuor expects from the party and political hierarchies fair and un-engineered systems and processes that would lead to a fair selection of our next NPP flagbearer in the upcoming NPP flagbearership race in order to achieve party unity and sustain it thereafter for victory of the party in the 2024 elections.

“This should be free of coercion and political machinations so that the ultimately selected nominee, coming out of the uncompromised freewill of the voting delegates, can easily command the support and respect of all party faithfuls, and indeed, other Ghanaians sympathetic to our cause toward “breaking the eight,” “said the statement outlining the issues.

Speaking during a celebration for father’s day over the weekend in the Eastern Region, Kufuor said that Bawumia has grown to resemble a son to him ever since he entered politics.

The Vice-President, who is seated next to me, the 83-year-old stated, “Let me pick out one guy; he is also a parent, but I can say that he happens to be my son too. When the organizers decided to invite the vice president, you found out he had traveled to the North for certain responsibilities, and you even expressed skepticism that he would be able to attend, according to your story.

“But when you called him, he said, “If it’s JA Kufuor, I’m coming,” with his trademark giggle. Although really heartwarming, that is probably how a son should treat his father. It’s a complete coincidence, but you might not be aware that the Vice-President was born in 1963, the same year I began to parent.
