STC Chief Executive Officer, Nana Akomea says he is highly optimistic that Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia will win the New Patriotic Party (NPP) presidential election on November 4.
According to him, Dr. Bawumia’s emphatic victory in the party’s super delegates election on Saturday, August 26 is a good indication of his performance in the upcoming main election.
Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia polled 629 votes, beating his competitors with an overwhelming 68.15% margin, to come tops on the top five candidates’ list.
“I have no doubt that it is the same thing that will happen. Looking at the results, winning at every single Region, he is the heart desire of the party. So, when the electoral college is expanded and the people contesting is few, I expect his margins to go higher,” Nana Akomea told host Kwami Sefa Kayi on Peace FM’s ‘Kokrokoo’ morning show.
He added; “I believe Dr. Bawumia’s 70 will go beyond 75 to 80” percent in the November 4 election.
The four candidates joining Dr. Bawumia into the November 4 election are; Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong who garnered 132 votes to come second on the list, former Trade Minister, Alan Kyerematen with 95 votes jumping to third, former Agric Minister, Dr. Owusu Afriyie-Akoto who got 36 votes to be fourth and former Energy Minister, Boakye Agyarko together with a leading member of the NPP, Francis Addai-Nimoh both polled 9 votes.
The party will conduct a run-off on Saturday, September 2 to decide between Boakye Agyarko and Thomas Addai Nimoh to complete the list of top five.Source: Ameyaw Adu Gyamfi/Peacefmonline.com/Ghana
