Historian and lawyer, Yaw Anokye Frimpong, has observed that Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia as the presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2024 polls is an indication of a rift between Northers and Akans in the party.
According to him, after Alan Kyerematen resigned from the party, the Akans in the party face was Kennedy Agyapong who was buttered
“So, it means that now the Akans would have to succumb to a northerner and that would reduce their votes, and the reason I am saying this is because of history,” he said
In an interview, Lawyer Frimpong went on to list the factors that he thinks would go against Bawumia in the 2024 election, including the corruption in the current government, which he is vice president of, and the economic meltdown in the country.
“The first major factor is the corruption going on, the decay in our system. In fact, with the decline in the economy, nothing seems to be moving… and which country on earth always blaming your problems on the Russia-Ukraine war? Russia-Ukraine war, Covid-19, no West African Country says that. So now you see that we are being led by a government of broken promises.
“… you would see the vice president, who is the second in command to all the failures we have witnessed so far, is going to carry their flag. So, with that alone, I see it as a major reason (50% of the reason) why he would lose,” he said.
