General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah has said Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia can never be a presidential candidate on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
According to him, Bawumia doesn’t stand a chance of winning against any contestant in his constituency because of the small number of delegates he has there.
He called on Bawumia to ensure creation of new constituencies in his area of influence.
In a press briefing in Tamale, Asiedu Nketiah quizzed, “when NPP decides to go for Congress and the number of candidates from the other constituencies have more numbers than the six you have in North East, how will you win?”
“Dr. Bawumia is going around saying that he will replace Nana Akufo-Addo as the next presidential candidate of the NPP. How can you become a presidential candidate when the delegates in NPP have to endorse you.”
“How are the delegates selected; based on constituencies. So if some action is being taken to suppress the number of constituencies you can have in your area of influence and you are jumping around saying you are going to be a presidential candidate of the NPP, are you not deceiving yourself,” he asked.
