Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the current vice president, has been chosen by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to lead the organisation and serve as its flagbearer for the 2024 presidential election.

After winning the NPP primary with 61.47% of the vote, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia was named the party's presidential nominee.

Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, his nearest rival, received 35.52% of the vote, Dr Owusu Afriyie Akoto, a former agricultural minister, received 0.81%, and Francis Addai Nimoh received 0.43%.

Intense rivalry and political drama marred Dr Bawumia's path to becoming the ruling party's flagbearer, including Kennedy Ohene Agyapong's formidable challenge and the consequences of the Super Delegates Conference.

Dr. Bawumia and Kennedy Ohene Agyapong are rivals.

Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, a well-known party member and Member of Parliament, and Dr Mahamudu Bawumia engaged in an intense battle during the NPP primaries that preceded the 2024 election.

Mr. Agyapong posed a serious threat because of his well-known strong opinions and active involvement in the party.

Bawumia ran a fierce campaign, but his years of experience as vice president and his well-run campaign helped him win the nomination.

Kennedy Ohene Agyapong's passionate campaign to become the NPP flagbearer highlighted the party's internal dynamics and the variety of viewpoints present.

Agyapong made a substantial contribution to the political landscape of the NPP even though he was unable to get the nomination.

Repercussions of the Super Delegates Meeting

The NPP had a significant political upheaval as a result of the Super Delegates convention, which was an unexpected turn of events.

Renowned party member and former Trade and Industry Minister Alan Kyerematen made the decision to leave the NPP.

To voice his displeasure with the party's internal procedures, Mr. Kyerematen claimed that the presidential primary was being rigged in favour of a well-known contender.

The splits and tensions inside the NPP were highlighted by his decision to leave the party and form the Movement for Unity.

His withdrawal not only represented a major loss for the party but also served as a sobering reminder of the difficulties in governing a pluralistic political environment.

The conflict between Bawumia and Mahama

The NPP's selection of Dr Mahamudu Bawumia as its flagbearer has set the ground for a fierce and keenly followed presidential contest in 2024.

In a contest for the presidency, Bawumia, an accomplished politician and economist, will take on National Democratic Congress (NDC) leader John Mahama.

The 2024 presidential election in Ghana is expected to be a contest of ideologies, political outlooks, and policy recommendations. With a platform focused on economic growth, progress, and stability, Bawumia intends to lead the nation with his experience in economic policy and governance at the forefront.

Former president and seasoned statesman John Mahama will provide his own outlook on Ghana's future.

The outcome of the NPP primaries for Dr Mahamudu Bawumia marks a noteworthy advancement in Ghanaian politics, paving the way for a thrilling and contested 2024 presidential contest.

There are constant reminders of the complexity and variety among political parties thanks to the aftermath of the Super Delegates meeting and the resignation of Alan Kyerematen.

Ghanaians may anticipate a campaign that will influence the country's future and route going forward as the two main political parties, the NPP and NDC, get ready to face off in the polls.
