Nana Obiri Boahen, a former deputy general secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has declared that he will leave politics if Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia is unable to win the NPP’s nomination for flagbearer on November 4, 2023.
The Bawumia agenda and issue cannot be discussed. Never will Bawumia lose; that is a given. No, nowhere will it take place.
If he loses, I’ll give up politics because I do more than just talk. So don’t argue with whatever I say; just accept it, he said.
On August 28, 2023, he made a prediction in an interview with Kwabena Mensah Abrompah for Radio Univers that the Vice President will win in at least 200 of the 275 seats, securing his position as the front-runner within the NPP.
“I cannot be removed from Ghanaian politics, especially when it comes to history, as I am familiar with my nation’s political past since birth. Therefore, you must believe anything I say, he argued.
The Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, won the New Patriotic Party Super Delegates Conference as the front-runner.
According to the findings, Dr. Bawumia received 629 votes, or 68.15 percent of all the votes cast. The outcomes are based on data compiled by 17 out of 17 voting locations nationwide.
Kennedy Agyapong, a lawmaker from Assin Central, is in second place with 132 votes, or 14.30 percent, followed by Alan Kyerematen, who received 95 votes, or 10.29 percent.
Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto took fourth place with 36 votes, or 3.90% of the total.
Francis Addai-Nimoh and Boakye Agyarko tied for fifth place with 9 votes each, or 0.98% of the total.
