The Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has inflicted wounds on Alan Kyerematen and eight others in a bid to lead the governing the New Patriotic Party (NPP) into the 2024 general elections.
He beat Alan Kyerematen, seen as a front runner, to win the party’s Super Delegates Conference held on Saturday, August 26.
Provisional results see Dr Bawumia with over 70 percent of the valid votes cast.
Dr Bawumia has already promised delegates of the party that he will beat John Dramani Mahama of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the next general elections.
According to him, he is the only candidate who can inflict a third consecutive election defeat on John Mahama.
In his tour around the country, Dr Bawumia insisted that the NPP has no choice than to “break the eight”.
“They know we will break the 8, and they know that John Mahama cannot take me on in the North, and they know that I will beat him in the North and this is why they don’t want me to be the flagbearer,” Dr Bawumia said on his campaign trail in the Tema West constituency of the Greater Accra Region.
