Thousands of Supporters Hit The Streets In Solidarity With Bawumia As Kumasi Stands Still – Social Media Expresses Shock



In a plot twist worthy of a Ghanaian telenovela, the streets of Kumasi were flooded with supporters of Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP). This unexpected scene unfolded on a Monday, a day traditionally reserved for work rather than political fanfare, leaving social media abuzz with astonishment and conjecture.

The narrative leading up to this event was rather predictable—or so we thought. Pundits, with their crystal balls polished and Twitter accounts at the ready, had largely written off Dr. Bawumia. The NPP’s recent stint in government had, according to popular opinion, been as thrilling as watching paint dry. Thus, the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) gleefully labeled Dr. Bawumia’s candidacy as a “suicide mission,” pitting him against the supposedly invincible John Mahama, the NDC’s own flagbearer.

However, the political oracle seemed to have malfunctioned. Dr. Bawumia’s unannounced tour in the Ashanti Region saw Kumasi transform from a city of industrious workers to one resembling a football stadium on derby day. As throngs of supporters lined the streets, it became clear that the narrative was not as straightforward as the NDC would have liked us to believe.

The spectacle left many commentators in a state of social media-induced shock. Tweets ranged from genuine surprise to thinly veiled panic, as the sea of humanity in Kumasi threw into question the assumed trajectory of the 2024 election. “Where did all these people come from?” one might ask, in between retweets of drone footage capturing the sheer volume of the crowd.

Indeed, the scene resembled a meticulously orchestrated flash mob rather than a spontaneous outpouring of support. One could almost hear the sound of keyboards clattering as NDC strategists scrambled to reassess their game plan. The visual of Bawumia basking in the adulation of his supporters on a workday, no less, was a cinematic coup.

For the NPP, this was a moment of vindication. After months of enduring jibes and predictions of doom, they finally had a tangible sign that the political landscape was not as barren as their critics suggested. The message was clear: Dr. Bawumia was not just a contender but a formidable force capable of rallying the masses even on the most mundane of weekdays.

As the dust settles, one can’t help but appreciate the irony. The NDC, so sure of their narrative, now find themselves facing an opponent who can draw crowds with the ease of a magician pulling rabbits out of a hat. The political stage is set for what promises to be an electrifying showdown in 2024.

In the end, Monday’s spectacle in Kumasi serves as a reminder that in politics, as in life, certainty is a fleeting illusion. As the saying goes, “Man proposes, but the electorate disposes.” And as Dr. Bawumia’s supporters have shown, sometimes the electorate disposes with a turnout that can only be described as legendary.
